All about ATAR
The Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) The ATAR is a rank, not a score. It’s designed specifically to assist some tertiary institutions in selecting applicants for some courses. The ATAR is only one tool used for selection into tertiary courses, and not all courses use the ATAR.
This selection explains:
what the ATAR is
what the ATAR isn’t
how the ATAR is calculated
what scaling is and why we do it
what your aggregate is
rules and restrictions regarding study combinations for how your aggregate is calculated, and
how your aggregate becomes your ATAR
There’s a lot of detail in this section that can be hard to remember, so keep hold of this guide so you can revisit it in Year 11 and 12.
