Melbourne uses the VCE ATAR System in Year 11 and 12

From Years 5-10, students mainly focus on general English, Maths and Science.

In year 11 and 12, students complete subjects as part of their ATAR studies, which is the system used in Victoria to get admission into university.

VCE subjects and subject performance is used to calculate your.

What is the VCE?

Exactly how the mythical VCE works is a constant source of confusion for parents and students - sometimes even for those currently undertaking VCE subjects. Hopefully all of the following information - explained for you by a VCE survivor! - will clarify the key points of confusion.

How does VCE work?

The VCE consists of four units (1-4) which are undertaken across two years. These are generally Year 11 (Units 1 and 2) and Year 12 (Units 3 and 4), however subjects can be undertaken as accelerated courses of study. As a result, some students may undertake Units 1 and 2 of a subject in Year 10 and Units 3 and 4 of a subject in Year 11. While this is the most common form of acceleration, some schools allow units to be taken even in earlier school years. Note that, in some cases, it is possible to undertake Units 3 and 4 of a subject without having completed Units 1 and 2.

The VCE is structured around a study design that details all the content to be learned by students. This content is broken down into key Areas of Study. They are then tested in Outcomes (graded S/N -satisfactory or not-) in Units 1 and 2 and School Assessed Coursework (SACs, graded A+ to UG - ungraded) in Units 3 and 4, as well as final VCE exams at the end of all four units.

Final exams explicitly test only learning from Units 3 and 4, however content from Units 1 and 2 is assumed knowledge and therefore often necessary to complete exams. At the end of the process, students receive a Study Score out of 50 for each Units 3 and 4 subject undertaken, as well as an overall ATAR. Study scores are derived from SAC and exam marks, while the ATAR is derived from the study scores. Both of these forms of a student's final mark are rankings against the performance of other students. Here is the VCE scaling report from 2022 that can help inform you on how much your subject scales up or down.

The VCE system can be quite complex, and understanding what's going on can be very daunting for new students and parents. If you ever need some assistance with VCE studies or subject specific help, KIS Academics tutors have a thorough understanding of their subjects and can assist in understanding curriculum requirements. Our tutors are able to provide materials and teaching on how to prepare for VCE assessments. Learn about our VCE tutoring and book a free study skills consultation with a KIS Academics tutor.

As a year 11 student doing ATAR, I was looking for a tutor that could help me with French. KIS Academics was incredibly helpful and fast at finding me a wace french tutor who could assist me with my studies. My tutor Eliza Carey over the past few months has helped me so much not only in French but in biology and maths as well. I’m incredibly grateful for the effort and commitment she has put into helping me be more comfortable and less stressed about the subjects I was having difficulty with. It’s been nothing but an honour to be tutored by Eliza and I strongly recommend her as a tutor

I got the top mark for my SAC which was really nice, and I think that’s all because of my tutor”

Elena Cruz




Hey guys! I’m Elena and I’m here to say: I get it. VCE can be difficult. So no matter whether you’re aiming for the top or just trying to survive this crazy thing we call school, my ultimate mission is to help make things easier for you. I can be your certified secret weapon!

Here’s a little bit about why:

🏅Graduated with a 99.60 ATAR

🏅Scored a raw 50 in English

🏅Premier’s Award for VCE English

📈 Over 700 hours of tutoring experience

📈 Over 5 years as a Saturday School classroom teacher

📈 Over 30 previous students

📈 Over 25 different texts taught

I know, I know. There are a lot of high achievers out there. And I am the first to admit that having good grades does not make someone a good teacher. I’ve been teaching for a long time (and have studied teaching at Monash) and I can tell you that communication skills and a high EQ are the important ingredients. That being said, please don’t think of me as just another teacher!

As we at KIS like to say, tutors should feel like ‘genius best friends’, and that is absolutely my tutoring philosophy.

When I’m not tutoring, I work part time as a kindergarten teacher (is it harder to teach teenagers or three year olds? 🤔that’s been my ongoing question!) - and as any parent can tell you, young children can be brutal! One thing I’ve learned definitively is that students will never learn from someone they don’t like. Hence, ‘genius best friends’. I prioritise getting to know you, your likes and dislikes, your ‘learning turn off’ (the thing that makes someone hate coming to class)… because I believe that knowing your personal context behind why you’ve started tutoring is vital to making sure you actually get something out of it.

I don’t want to be just another authority figure, and I don’t believe in handing you copious amounts of homework when you might already be struggling to stay on top of your regular schoolwork. Even the best multitaskers struggle with having multiple different streams of learning at once (between orchestra, theatre, leadership roles, academic competitions, public speaking competitions, dance, a part time job and debating, I definitely learned this the hard way in high school!).

I absolutely do give out recommended reading and exercises, and have an extensive bank of practise prompts, sample essays, study guides and other resources to share if you want them! But I’m not going to crucify you if you don’t do it.

Rote learning is very different to core conceptual understanding. Cultivating that is my goal.

Ultimately, what I’m saying is that I know what it’s like to be a student! I still am one (at university). I try to tutor the things students need to know, in a way that you can understand it. I also received tutoring while I was in high school, so I understand where you’re coming from.

Therefore as a tutor, my ideals are to combine personal experience as both the student and the teacher to create a balanced, tailored, welcoming and relatable tutoring process for you.

What I offer:

✅ Regular lessons according to your schedule (weekly, fortnightly, 30, 60, 90mins…whatever you feel!)

✅ Ad hoc lessons before SACs or exams (there’s always time to improve!)

✅ Essay marking for my students (with a 36 hour return policy)

✅ Independent, personalised curricula (if you want to be ahead of your class / do something different)

Aside from the content itself, as a VCE survivor I am able to help out with general tips and tricks- all the things that will ultimately help you help yourself!

My role as a tutor can be summarised in one word - I am a de-stresser.

So whatever that means to you, wherever your stress is building up - let me know and I’d love to help.

I left high school happy with my six years there - a feeling which I hope to impart to you. Whether that means improved grades, better studying skills or a greater enjoyment of a subject, I will be there to help that happen and have some laughs along the way!

Jeff Ma




Hey there! My name is Jeff, and I graduated as the Dux of Xavier College with an ATAR of 99.95. I'm currently a final year medical student at Monash University.

High school is unequivocally challenging - VCE aside for a moment, balancing your social life, home life and extra-curricular activities can seem quite daunting. I was in your position not too long ago and had an incredibly full-on schedule. And perhaps like you now, I dreamt big - I wanted to go into medicine after high school. This meant juggling all my commitments while being in the top 0.1% of the state academically. Frankly, I had my doubts.
But I made it.
Since graduating high school, I have made it my mission to help passionate, conscientious students who dare to dream to attain their full potential. Having tutored and mentored more than 100 students, I am very confident in helping you to score the best marks possible and get into your desired uni course.

And unlike some, I didn't sacrifice my social life and hobbies in year 12. I have gradually developed a series of strategies to study efficiently and maximise every second of my revision to maintain good grades. These have helped me to attain perfect study scores and Premiers' Award in Physics and English. And perhaps more importantly, I had an eminently enjoyable and personally enriching experience throughout the six years of high school.

My teaching style is concept-oriented, meaning I prioritise helping you to fully understand the underlying ideas using well-written and clear notes before walking you through example questions. In other words, I wish to train and guide the way you think and approach questions. Having been tutored myself by a VCE methods examiner, I'm confident in helping you to develop an "exam-perspective" to understand just exactly what the examiners are looking for. Moreover, I aim to cultivate the skill of studying efficiently rather than abundantly within all my students, an ability that will undoubtedly assist you in time management and achieve success in your future careers - after all, that's what VCE is all about!

Thomas Esler




Hey there! My name is Tom. I completed VCE biology back in 2018. In 2019, I graduated high school with a 99.60 ATAR, and was also dux of the Monash University Biomedical Science extension program. I am currently completing my final year of medical school at Monash University.

Over the last few years, I have tutored many students for VCE biology, with many going on to achieve outstanding results. You can check out some reviews from satisfied customers below. I’ve tutored students of all abilities, so whether you just need some help to pass, or you’re gunning for the Premier’s Award, you can rest assured I’ve got the tips, tricks, and resources to help you achieve your goals.

In our lessons, we will systematically cover all the content from the VCAA study design and go through practise questions to help you learn and apply all the knowledge you’ll need to ace your end of year exam. I can also assist with any questions, assignments, and SAC preparation you have from your coursework at school. All of my students also receive access to my collection of resources including content notes, practise SACs, diagnostic tests, sets of past VCAA questions, and a collection of practise exams (all up to date for the current study design).

Since high school, I’ve had to juggle my own studies with work, sporting, and social commitments. As such, I’ve always been looking for the most efficient ways to study so as to get the good marks I want, without having to hit the books for six hours every night. This has allowed me to pursue other interests such as playing and following basketball, as well as giving me the time to watch way too much Netflix. Through tutoring, I hope to be able to pass on some of the tips, tricks, and strategies I have learned to help you get the most possible out of your studies.

Ultimately, your high school studies can be very rewarding and genuinely enjoyable if you know how to approach them, and I hope to provide you with some of the strategies and support needed to help you succeed. Thanks for checking out my profile, all the best with your studies, and hope to hear from you soon.
