Senior Sub-School (Years 11 & 12)


The Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) is awarded on behalf of the State Government of Victoria to students upon successful completion of Years 11 and 12 and allows entry to tertiary institutions. Students in Year 12 are assessed using school coursework and external examinations. Outstanding students can extend their studies by undertaking a university subject within the VCE. Students can also complete a VET program as part of their VCE studies.

The minimum requirements for obtaining the VCE is satisfactory completion of 16 units including:

  • At least 3 units of English or English Literature
  • At least 3 sequences of units 3-4, other than English


  • A unit is equal to a semester and approximately 100 hours duration
  • VET in Schools programs can contribute to the completion of VCE
  • VTAC advises that for the calculation of the ENTER, satisfactory completion of both Units 3 & 4 English is required

Further information about the VCE can also be found at: www.vcaa.vic.edu.au

In accordance with the Victorian Curriculum Assessment Authority (VCAA) requirements, Fountain Gate Secondary College believes students should attend all timetabled and pre-arranged classes. We believe that this will allow students sufficient class time to successfully complete set class work, School Assessed Tasks (SAT’s) and School Assessed Coursework (SAC’s).

You can view your child(ren)s attendance by logging into Compass.

Student travellers, please advise both schools if absent on a travelling day.
