Guaranteed ATARs

A Guaranteed ATAR enables you to plan and list your course preferences with confidence. This means that you have complete transparency when choosing your courses and can make informed decisions about your future now. If you receive an ATAR equal to or above this number, meet the course prerequisites and any ‘Essential requirements for admission’, we will guarantee you a place in this course/program.

The Guaranteed ATAR allows you to know the likelihood of receiving an offer into specific courses. However, if you receive an ATAR below this guarantee, you may still receive a place. The lowest ATAR/selection rank for our courses varies from year to year, and is influenced by the number of applicants for the course at each location, and the number of places available. We will use your adjusted ATAR (selection rank) when determining if you have reached the Guaranteed ATAR.

You can use these guaranteed entry ATARs to guide your preference planning. You should always put your dream course as preference 1, and go for it. But look at courses with a lower guaranteed ATAR that may pathway into your dream course, as a safety net. And remember that you can change your preferences after your Year 12 results are released.
