Getting your results
Victorian Year 12 students
If you are a current VCE student:
Your VCE study scores, ATAR and VTAC Scaled Study Scores will be available to you via internet and SMS services. All current VCE students will receive a statement of VCE study scores from the VCAA. However, only students who have applied for courses through VTAC this year and have paid their VTAC processing fees will be sent an ATAR statement in the mail.
How to access your results online
To view your results online, log on to resultsandatar.vic.edu.au using your VCE student number and Results Service PIN. The default Results Service PIN is the first four digits of your birthdate, however you are strongly encouraged to change this prior to the release of results (see below). Results will be available online from mid-December.
Note: The Results Service PIN is separate from your VTAC PIN.
Protect your privacy—change your PIN
