General Achievement Test (GAT)

In 2024 the GAT will be held on Tuesday 18 June.

The General Achievement Test (GAT) is a pen-and-paper test of general knowledge and skills taken by students in the course of completing their senior secondary studies.

The GAT plays an important role in the quality assurance of VCE assessments and also provides students with an opportunity to demonstrate they meet the Victorian Literacy and Numeracy Standards expected at a senior secondary level.

No special study is needed. Past study of subjects like English, Mathematics, Science, and History prepares students for the GAT by building their general knowledge and skills in writing, numeracy, and reasoning.
