2020 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.

To access your ATAR, log in to this website from 9am on Friday 18 December. You'll need your Year 12 student number and UAC PIN. 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 February 2021: after this date you will need to buy your Advice Notice through the UAC Shop at a cost of $55.

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’.

If you have questions about your ATAR, you can call the ATAR Enquiry Centre on 1300 MY ATAR (1300 692 827). The Enquiry Centre will be open for a few days from Friday 18 December.
