The VCE (Baccalaureate) has been designed to provide further information about the kind of senior secondary program of study a student has undertaken within the very flexible structure of the VCE. It also provides an additional form of recognition for those students who choose to undertake the demands of studying both a higher level mathematics and a language in their VCE program of study.
The VCE (Baccalaureate) is contained within the VCE and is not another senior secondary credential.
To be eligible to receive the VCE (Baccalaureate) the student must satisfactorily complete the VCE and receive a study score for each prescribed study component.
The VCE program of study must include:
- a Units 3 and 4 sequence in English or Literature or English Language with a study score of 30 or above; or a Units 3 and 4 sequence in EAL with a study score of 33 or above
- a Units 3 and 4 sequence in either Mathematics Methods (CAS) or Specialist Mathematics
- a Units 3 and 4 sequence in a VCE Language
at least two other Units 3 and 4 sequences
