9. Basis of Selection

9.1 With the exception of equity places offered in accordance with Rule 10 below, the selection of applicants for admission is based on academic merit as reflected in the entry score or rank, and satisfaction of any other prerequisite requirements.

9.2 Where the entry requirements include satisfying criteria associated with interview, folio, audition or other demonstration of defined attributes, selection is based on both academic merit and an assessment of the required attributes.

9.3 In any case where further delineation of year 12 scores is required, the following provisions will apply:

- QTAC - Year 12 applicants are selected on their OP. Within an OP band, if the number of eligible applicants exceeds the number of places for a course, Field Positions will be used.

- VTAC - Year 12 applicants are selected on their ATAR. After those applicants that are ‘clearly-in’ have been established, the second stage of a two-stage selection process is implemented. Applicants will then be considered on additional criteria under middle band selection.

- UAC - Year 12 applicants are selected on their ATAR which is a two digit, two decimal number.

- Direct entry - applicants to associate degree, advanced certificate or certificate programs are selected on their ATAR or OP/Queensland rank and additional criteria specified by the relevant Faculty
