Academic Pathways

About ATAR

From 2020, the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) will replace the Overall Position (OP) as the standard pathway to tertiary study for Queensland Year 12s.

The ATAR is the primary mechanism used nationally for tertiary admissions and indicates a student’s position relative to other students.

The ATAR will be introduced for students commencing Year 11 in 2019, who will graduate from the end of 2020 and seek entry to tertiary courses commencing from 2021.

QTAC will calculate ATARs for Queensland school leavers​.

University Early Entry

Many universities have Early Entry Schemes where you can be offered a place before the normal round of offers.​

The way these operate can vary from university to university, but generally they will involve you completing an application and being able to demonstrate that you are capable of succeeding in your chosen course and also that you are a good all round student who will contribute well to the life of the university you have chosen to apply for.  These have strict deadlines and cutoff times.  For more information regarding University Early Entry go directly to the website of the University you are interested in.​
