2021 NSW HSC students

ATARs are calculated for all ATAR-eligible students and released only to the student and the institutions to which the student has applied.

You will be able to access your ATAR via this website. You'll need your Year 12 student number and UAC PIN.

Your Year 12 student number: Your 8-digit student number was issued to you by NESA. If you've lost it, call NESA on 1300 13 83 23.

Your UAC PIN: Your 4-digit UAC PIN was emailed to you in April. It is different to your HSC PIN. If you've lost your UAC PIN, call us on (02) 9752 0200.

When you view your ATAR you’ll see a list of the ATAR courses you studied, their category, and the number of units of each ATAR course that contributed to the calculation of your ATAR.

You can also download and save your official ATAR Advice Notice for free until 28 March 2022: after this date you will need to buy your Advice Notice through the UAC Shop at a cost of $60.

If you receive an ATAR between 0.00 and 30.00, your ATAR will be recorded as ‘30 or less’. If you haven’t met the requirements of the ATAR, your ATAR will be recorded as ‘not eligible’.
