Students wishing to receive an ATAR contribution for the scored units 3 and 4 sequence of VCE VET Information, Digital Media and Technology must undertake scored assessment for the purpose of achieving a study score.

Where a student elects not to receive a study score for the scored units 3 and 4 sequence of VCE VET Information, Digital Media and Technology, no contribution to the ATAR will be available.
