ATAR Score

At TSSM, we can help you to increase your chances of getting into the tertiary course of your dreams. It just takes a little forward planning, and some dedicated study time. The first step in this process involves understanding ATAR.

What is your VCE ATAR?

The Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) is a nation-wide ranking system that enables tertiary institutions to compare the results of students who have completed different subjects as part of their VCE/HSC qualification.The ATAR is used exclusively by institutions for the purposes of ranking school leavers for admission into tertiary courses. In Victoria, ATAR results are issued by the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) and are used by VTAC.

Wondering how to calculate your ATAR?

VTAC uses VCE results issued by VCAA (Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority) to calculate an ATAR score.

  • However, the ATAR is technically not a score, although many refer to it as a score;- it is a rank (which shows a student's achievement in relation to other students).

The ATAR is developed from an aggregate produced by adding:

  • ATAR subject score in English, English Language, Literature or EAL
  • The next best three ATAR subject scores permissible; and
  • 10% of the fifth and sixth permissible ATAR subject scores that are available.

It’s important to remember that ATAR is not actually a score. ATAR is a ranking system in which your results are compared and calculated against all other VCE / HSC students in Australia.
