Dear careers practitioners,

We have been able to confirm further details from the SMS provider, Salmat Digital, which are contained in a further statement. Please find additional information for schools below the statement, which are designed to assist in counselling any students who may have received a message.

VTAC and the VCAA can now confirm the following information made available by Salmat Digital about the early release of VCE results and ATARs via SMS in the early evening of 7 December:

  •  2,075 VCE students received an SMS from Salmat Digital
  • The VCE results and ATAR within the SMS are accurate

VTAC and the VCAA will be contacting each of the students affected to confirm the accuracy of the information and provide further support.

All schools will also be contacted and apprised of any updates to this situation.

Students with concerns should contact the VCAA on 1800 134 197 or VTAC on 1300 364 133.


Example information released to some students by SMS:


SMS results show:
