Offers to applicants who have an ATAR (or equivalent) below the cut-off
Institutions have alternative pathway schemes for admission, which may allow you to receive an offer to a course even with an ATAR below the cut-off.
Remember that your ATAR does not change or increase, even if you receive an offer to a course with a higher cut-off.
The schemes offered by the institutions differ and include those listed. As well as using the following links, you can refer to each institution's entry for more information about the schemes offered.
Alternative entry schemes
Most UAC institutions provide alternative entry.

Performance in relevant subjects – bonus points
Some institutions will apply subject bonus points to your admission rank in recognition of your performance in Year 12 subjects relevant to your chosen course of tertiary study.
Regional schemes – bonus points
Some institutions will apply regional bonus points to your admission rank if you live in or undertake your Year 12 schooling in a certain area.
