COVID-19: shipping delays & changes to 2020 VCE Study Design

Orders - shipping delays

Due to COVID-19 and social distancing recommendations, HTAV staff will be working from home as of Monday, 23 March 2020. As a result, there will be some minor delays with the fulfilment of orders.

Our Collingwood office will be intermittently staffed and no order pick-ups will be available.

We will continue to post orders.

For any queries you will be able to contact us at all times via email on

On behalf of everyone here at HTAV, we wish you all the best and look forward to continuing to provide our resources to you.

UPDATE 24/04/2020 - 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.

Changes to 2020 VCE Study Design

The 2020 VCE History study design has been altered slightly and students and teachers should consult it and take the changes into consideration when using HTAV's textbooks, study and exam guides and sample exams from previous years. Visit the VCAA website for more information about the VCE Adjusted Study Design for 2020

We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Australians and Traditional Custodians of the lands where we live, learn and work. The HTAV Office is located on the lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. These lands were never ceded. We pay our respect to their ancestors and Elders, past and present.

Please note: Indigenous Australians are advised that the HTAV website may include images or names of people now deceased.
