VCE

The Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE)

There are two options for students at MCC; VCE Scored, and VCE Non-scored.

VCE Scored

A good option for students who would like to go on to further education at university. Students complete a minimum number of units, sit exams and receive a study score which gives them a ranking number (ATAR) for tertiary admission.

VCE Non-Scored

A good option for students who are not intending to go on with further education at the university level. Students who complete this pathway can continue into TAFE courses or the workforce.

Because each of our students learns in a different way, and at a different pace, we encourage parents and students to explore all the options available to them.
