Two ATAR adjustment points will be applied to the published ATAR entry requirements for international students commencing in 2023*. This will allow the University to provide consideration for international applicants whose learning has been impacted by COVID-19.
*Note: This adjustment is not applicable to certain courses and qualifications.
International applicants who satisfy course prerequisites will automatically have two ATAR adjustment points added to their ATAR score (or equivalent score converted to ATAR) at the point of application.
Here is an example of how the ATAR adjustment is applied.
|Sample course||Published ATAR||Student's ATAR||Score after adjustment|
|Bachelor of Arts||80||78||80|
|Bachelor of Engineering (flexible first year)||85||83||85|
For students who studied International Baccalaureate (IB), A-Levels or other international secondary education qualifications, the scores will be converted to ATAR equivalent, and then the COVID related adjustment will be applied.
Here is an example of how the ATAR adjustment point is applied on an IB Diploma.
|Sample course||Published IB||Student's IB score||Score after adjustment|
|Bachelor of Commerce||36||35||36|
The adjustment will apply to most of the international secondary education qualifications accepted by the University for applicants applying for courses commencing in 2023.
The adjustments do not apply to Gao Kao or Foundation program scores. Any ATAR adjustments will be applied by admissions at the assessment stage.
