Editions of texts:
Prescribed editions of texts (e.g. Cambridge, Penguin, Translated by…) are set for class and study purposes. Students are therefore required to purchase the prescribed edition of the text as book-listed.

VCE English/EAL: The VCAA does not prescribe editions for VCE English/EAL; any complete edition may be used. MHS has set the Vellacott translation of Medea for study.

VCE Literature: VCAA sets specific translations of text editions. Students must purchase the prescribed translation of the book-listed text.  Only passages from the prescribed translated edition will be used in the exam.
