My disclaimer
This tool is designed to help students understand how SAC scores, exam scores and study scores are related in most cases. It will not be accurate in all cases. The largest sources of uncertainty in the estimation model are
  • SAC moderation, especially for schools with small student populations, and
  • mark boundaries for study scores above 45 are highly dependent on the actual VCAA exam questions, which change from year to year.

VCAA disclaimer
The VCAA does not support or endorse the development and use of study score calculators as they can lead to erroneous conclusions and frustration for individual students. The assessment results for one year should not be used in any way to predict results for students in subsequent years. Each year’s assessments results, both for school based and external (Examinations), will vary due to different assessments being used and different populations of students participating in the assessment.
