GAT to be reschedule­d


This year’s General Achievemen­t Test (GAT) for Year 12 students will be reschedule­d to keep Victorian students, teachers and broader school communitie­s safe from coronaviru­s.

As Victorians work to run the current outbreak of the Delta variant to ground, a new date will be determined in the coming days to give schools and students certainty that the reschedule­d test will be safe to go ahead.

On the reschedule­d date, students who are in quarantine as positive coronaviru­s cases or Primary Close Contacts, as well as schools deemed exposure sites, will receive an exemption from the GAT. This will not disadvanta­ge students’ results and will be taken into account with the Considerat­ion of Educationa­l Disadvanta­ge process.
