ATARs and Tertiary entrance
QTAC is responsible for calculating students' ATARs.
QTAC calculates ATARs based on either:
If a student is eligible for an ATAR in both categories, QTAC will use their highest ATAR.
English as a requirement for ATAR eligibility
To be eligible for an ATAR, students must satisfactorily complete a QCAA English subject. While students must meet this standard to be eligible to receive an ATAR, it won't be mandatory for a student's English result to be included in the calculation of their ATAR.

Access Arrangements and Reasonable Adjustments (AARA)
The QCAA recognises that some students may have disability impairment and/or medical conditions or experience other circumstances that may affect their ability to read, respond to and participate in assessment. Access arrangements and reasonable adjustments (AARA) are designed to assist these students.
Access arrangements are action/s taken by the school so that a student with an eligible impairment that may not be covered by the definition of disability can access assessment.
Reasonable adjustments are action/s taken by the school so that a student with an eligible impairment as a result of a disability and/or medical condition and experiencing other circumstances creating a barrier to the completion of assessment can be assessed. For more information visit the AARA portal on the QCAA website or see Section 6 of the QCE and QCIA policy and procedures handbook. Below are some informative and helpful links.
