Release of the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR)

Release of the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR)

The release of the ATAR will be delayed until Thursday 20 January 2022.

 

The ACT BSSS works closely with the Universities Admissions Centre (UAC) to produce the ATAR so that ACT students can apply for direct university admission.

 

The delay is due to the postponement of the NSW Higher School Certificate examinations. The ATAR and therefore University offers for ACT and NSW students are processed at the same time.

 

UAC processes applications on behalf of all ACT and NSW Universities, including applications from students in other states and territories. Tertiary Admissions Centres in other states and territories do likewise.

 

The later release of rankings will not affect University applications through UAC as they are processed in the same way and at the same time for all students.
