Appendix 1 - Calculation of Rank

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

  1. completed year 12 studies in a previous year and have not completed at least 12 months of full-time tertiary study;
  2. 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;
  3. 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, the University will utilise comparable schedules.
