What is an ATAR?
Your Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) provides a ranking of Year 12 students across Australia (excluding Queensland). It’s an important number, but it's not your only route into uni.
Your ATAR is calculated for the use of tertiary institutions to compare the overall achievement of students who have completed different combinations of VCE studies.
The ATAR – Australian Tertiary Admission Rank – is a number between 0 and 99.95 presented in intervals of 0.05. The highest ATAR is 99.95. Ranks below 30.00 are reported as ‘less than 30’.
In Victoria, ATARs are calculated by the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC). For more information on how ATARs are calculated, and to find out when ATAR results are released, visit the VTAC website.
