The ATAR increment is calculated as follows. The student's final score in their Federation higher education study (two units), may result in an additional ATAR score increment.
Only one higher education study (two units studied over two semesters in one year) is approved in the VCE and for the ATAR increment.
|Federation HE unit score||ATAR increment|
Each unit is delivered via flexible online learning alongside an on-campus orientation session and a number of on-campus, enriched learning experiences each semester. The hours you will attend on campus will vary between each unit/discipline studied.
