ACTAC Statement: National collaboration to support IB students

03 Jun 2020

    THE Australasian Conference of Tertiary Admissions Centres (ACTAC), comprising admissions centres from across Australia, is committed to ensuring that International Baccalaureate (IB) students, like other Year 12 students, will still have a pathway to tertiary study in 2021.

    As in previous years, the IB diploma scores of graduating students will be converted to an ATAR-like value using the IB Combined Rank schedule published nationally. This conversion ensures that IB students can be considered for courses across Australia in a fair and consistent manner.

    IB students aspiring to further study should remain committed to their goals and be reassured that their journey to tertiary study will look similar to previous years.

    Read the more in the IB and COVID-19 fact sheet.
