ATAR, the New Scoring Scheme for Year 12 Students in Australia

Reference: Uni admission score dumped

According to the newspaper article, a new scoring system called Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) will be introduced to all States except Queensland. ATAR is similar to Equivalent National Tertiary Entrance Rank (ENTER) in Victoria and Universities Admissions Index (UAI) in ACT and NSW, and Tertiary Admissions Rank (TAR) in SA and TAS. Only the difference between UAI and ATAR is the maximum score. UAI has its maximum score of 100, while ATAR and ENTER has 99.95.

Therefore, Victorian Year 12 VCE students will not worry about changing the scoring system from ENTER to ATAR because it will be basically the same as each other.

If VCE students or their parents or guardians want to know how to calculate ENTER score, this link – ABC of Scaling – might be useful.

퀸즐랜드를 제외한 모든 주에 공통으로 적용할 수 있는 새로운 대학수능시험 점수 산정방식을 도입한다고 한다. ATAR 이라고 불리는 이 점수 산정 방식은 우선적으로 ACT 와 NSW 주의 12학년 학생들을 대상으로 적용하는데, Victoria 주는 기존의 ENTER 산정 방식과 거의 비슷하기 때문에 그닥 큰 영향을 받지는 않을 듯 싶다.

  1. You’re so fast..
    There seems to be not many changes to Victorian secondary school students. That’s good. Thanks.

    • Nothing significant changes will be drawn for VCE students, I guess.
