Using Heinemann Biology 6th edition to implement the new study design
NOTICE: VCAA Biology Study Design Delay
In May 2020, VCAA announced a 12-month extension to the accreditation period of the newly accredited 2021–2025 VCE Biology Study Design as a response to COVID-19.
This delay means that Heinemann Biology 1 and 2, 6th edition will now be published by Pearson Australia in Term 3, 2021 to support implementation in 2022.
The VCE study designs for Chemistry and Physics are currently under review by VCAA and are now planned for delivery by schools in 2023 (rather than 2022). Heinemann Chemistry 1 and 2, 6th edition and Heinemann Physics 11 and 12, 5th edition will be published for implementation of the new study design.
“Heinemann Biology gives an excellent foundation for VCE students fueling their passion for the subject and equips them for first year biology and beyond. This is certainly a book you’d want to keep handy as a student and also as an educator!”
