The Australian Tertiary Admission Rank

ACE 8034

Last Updated: 1 April 2019

The requirements for the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) are determined by the universities. The ATAR is calculated by the Universities Admissions Centre on behalf of universities in NSW and the ACT.

Students wishing to have an ATAR calculated must ensure that this is recorded on their HSC Confirmation of Entry.

Repeating courses or changing courses within a subject area (eg changing from HSC English Advanced and English Extension 1, to HSC English Standard) may have implications for the calculation of a student's ATAR.

Students should refer to the Universities Admissions Centre website at www.uac.edu.au.
