Notes

  1. Use all ATAR profile data as a guide only; it provides a broad overview of the ATARs and selection ranks of previous Year 12 students admitted into that course. ATARs and selection ranks required for entry in 2019 may be different. If you are unsure about including a course among your preferences, contact the relevant institution.
  2. This ATAR profile table is in line with Commonwealth Government transparency requirements. It is based on offers to recent school leavers (ie completed Year 12 in 2015 to 2017) who were selected solely or partly on their ATAR. Note that some institutions further differentiate this information on their websites by publishing:
    • separate data for 2017 Year 12 students and 2015/16 Year 12 students
    • data relating to an entire year's intake (eg all offers made in 2017 – semesters 1 and 2).
  3. The ATAR values exclude any adjustment factors.
  4. The selection ranks include the ATAR and any adjustment factors.
