the teachers guide to the VCE Biology Study Design 2022-2026

It’s that time again – the current VCE Biology Study Design period has come to an end, and VCAA have recently released the new Study Design (2022-2026) to teachers across Victoria. Although the new Study Design is still a year away, teachers are already beginning to plan for how to implement it in the 2022 school year.

In this definitive teacher’s guide, we explore the key changes between the old and new VCE Biology Study Design, which aims to give teachers and students a clearer path through the content and a bigger focus of key science skills. Our expert publishers also unpack the specific changes in the content, assessment weighting and the new requirements for SACs.  Plus, this free guide also provides an overview of the 4 key elements of the new Study Design.

With all this change, you may be thinking where do I begin? So, to help ensure Victorian Biology teachers address all the important facets of the Study Design in their teaching plans, we have provided 3 key considerations to begin planning for.
