Explanation of ATAR score for VET Certificates

  • Can be one of the primary four
    Students wishing to receive an ATAR contribution for the Units 3 and 4 sequence of this type VCE VET program must undertake scored assessment for the purpose of achieving a study score. This study score can contribute directly to the primary four or as a fifth or sixth study.
  • 10% of the average of the primary four subjects
    Students who receive a Units 3 and 4 sequence for this type VCE VET program will be eligible for a 10% increment towards their ATAR (10% of the average of the primary four scaled studies).
  • Block credit recognition
    Under block credit recognition, credit toward the VCE is determined by the AQF level at which the units of competence/modules are recognised and the nominal hours of training completed.

 

Bright P-12 College has a Study Centre explicitly for the use of Year 12 students. The building has private study corrals, a kitchen, a relaxation area and two offices for staff.

 

Every second Wednesday VCE and VCAL  students have a Study Day where they do not need to come to school unless specifically asked to do so by their teachers or coordinator.
