PublishingPageContent
​​​From 2020, Queensland’s standard pathway to tertiary entry, for Year 12 school leavers, will be the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR). ATARs are calculated by Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre (QTAC).

The ATAR is used nationally and indicates a student’s position relative to other ATAR-eligible students. Queensland ATARs are based on a student’s:

  • best five General subject results, or
  • best results in four General subjects, plus one Applied subject, or
  • best results in four General subjects, plus one VET qualification at Certificate III or above.

To be eligible for an ATAR, students must successfully complete an English subject. The result in English will only be included in the ATAR calculation if it is one of the student’s best five scaled results.​
