UPDATE 04/08/2020 – Our primary parcel carrier, Australia Post, are reporting that they are 'experiencing significant delivery delays in our network due to limited flights, social distancing requirements and a substantial increase in parcel volumes as more people shop online'. We will continue to monitor our carrier lead times but please be aware that there may be additional delays with delivery depending on your location.
Primary contacts should make sure all staff are linked to their school memberships so that everyone gets updates and information. Simply visit the My Profile tab in the Member Centre.

Visit the VCAA website for more information about the VCE Adjusted Study Design for 2020.
