Changes to ATAR and offer release in 2020

15 May 2020

FOLLOWING confirmation from NESA today that there will some changes to the HSC timetable and HSC results release, UAC has announced the following changes:

  • ATARs will now be released at 9am on Friday 18 December.
  • The deadline for changing preferences for December Round 2, when most offers are made, will now be midnight on Saturday 19 December.
  • December Round 2 offers released will be released at 7.30am on Wednesday 23 December.

No other dates in 2020 have been changed and offers for Schools Recommendation Schemes (SRS) will still be released on 12 November.

The timing of offers in January 2021 may change to accommodate results from other states; this will be confirmed as soon as possible.

Kim Paino, UAC’s General Manager of Marketing and Engagement says that ‘it’s good news for HSC students to know that they’ll still get their results and offers this year, and I’m sure their parents and teachers will be relieved too that some things are staying the same in this otherwise very different year’.

Information about the release of the ACT ATAR will be available from the ACT Board of Senior Secondary Studies.

Changes to offer release dates for international students and more information can be found on UAC’s website.
