Appendix 2 - Calculation of Rank

Calculation of Rank

For applicants other than year 12 school leavers, ACU National will adopt the common schedules* developed by the respective TACs in order to assign a rank and to align those ranks with the relevant UAI, ENTER and OP scores. These include applicants who –

(a)   completed year 12 studies in a previous year and have not completed at least 12 months of full-time tertiary study;

(b)  have completed at least 12 months of full-time tertiary study (equivalent of eight full-time units), in which case the rank will be calculated having regard to the grade point average achieved;

(c)   have other relevant education, training and experience or evidence of their ability to undertake tertiary study.

* Examples of the types of qualification or prior learning recognised in such schedules include -

-      Previous Year 12

-      Previous Australian tertiary study

-      TAFE qualification

-      Tertiary foundation or preparation course

-      Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT) – Multiple choice. STAT results are valid for 3 years

-      Overseas qualifications

-      Vocational experience

-      Personal Competency Statements ( Queensland)

In any state/territory where such schedules are not in use by the TAC, ACU National will utilise comparable schedules.
