SRS information for schools

SRS ratings closed at midnight on Wednesday 10 October 2018.

When UAC receives an SRS application from one of your students, your principal will be emailed a link to access SRS Principals and view your school’s applicant details. Principals then need to advise their nominated rater to log in to SRS Raters and rate any unrated students.

If your school’s principal has changed since last year, or you have any queries, please email srs@uac.edu.au. Otherwise no action is required until you receive an email from us advising that applications have been received from your students.

How to rate students

A rater is a permanent member of staff nominated by the principal to provide their professional assessment of each SRS applicant’s ability in, or suitability for, 10 areas of study and 5 aptitudes.

Schools can only nominate one rater and submit one set of ratings. If multiple staff are contributing to student ratings, the SRS Rater Template will help you collate their assessments. 

  1. When advised by your principal that a student has applied for SRS, log in to SRS Raters using your User ID and password (provided by your principal).
  2. Navigate to 'Applicant selection' and select the student's name.
  3. Enter specific ratings against each area of study and aptitude. Ratings range from 'inadequate' to 'exceptional'. The SRS Rater Overview and SRS Rating Scale provide details of criteria for each rating.
  4. Save and submit your rating. Once submitted, ratings cannot be edited.
