About the Exam
The Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) is earned by most graduates of secondary school in Victoria, Australia. Earning this certificate requires completing sixteen units, including at least three English units, and paves the way for students to move on to university study or to enter the workplace. The VCE English exam takes three hours and 15 minutes to complete, with 15 minutes devoted to reading time and three hours devoted to a writing section, which is divided into three parts. Section A involves reading a selected text and responding to it, Section B consists of writing in context, and Section C asks the student to compose a piece of prose.

The informative video and text lessons in this chapter cover all of the topics and teach you all of the skills you'll need to take the VCE English exam.

If you need assistance as you work through the chapters, you're welcome to contact an instructor for more help.
The date of the VCE exam is decided annually by the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA). Students are encouraged to arrive 30 minutes before the exam begins and are required to bring basic stationery items such as pens, pencils, erasers and sharpeners with them. The use of an English or bilingual dictionary is allowed, and students are required to write all of their answers in the answer book provided.
