Important: New for 2023

Please Note: In 2023, the senior certificate options for Victoria have changed.

  • The VCE will now include the Vocational Major (VM), a 2-year program that sits within the VCE.
  • VCAL will be phased out. The final year of intermediate/senior VCAL subjects will be available to Year 12 students only in 2023. They will graduate with a VCE VM Certificate.
  • The Victorian Pathways Certificate (VPC) has been introduced for Year 11 and 12 students who would benefit from a more flexible, accessible and individualised program and will replace VCAL Foundation.
  • In Year 11, one unit of Religious Education will run for both semesters. In light of this, students will also have the opportunity to also select another VCE unit that will run for two semesters.
