What is the GAT and what is it used for?
The GAT is a 3-hour test of your general knowledge and skills in:
- Written communication
- Mathematics, science and technology
- Humanities, the arts and social sciences.
The GAT is not a specific test about something you have learnt, it is very general.
This means that you cannot study specific content for the GAT, but students should complete past GAT assessments in order to understand how you will be assessed.
GAT results are used to check that your VCE Exams and School-based Assessments (SACs & SATs) have been accurately and fairly assessed.
This is more significant this year in our current climate.
