Queensland ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank)

ATAR is the primary mechanism used nationally for tertiary admissions and indicates a student’s position relative to other students.  It is the standard measure of a student’s overall academic achievement in relation to other students where these students have studied different subject combinations.

ATARS are expressed as a number on a 2000-point scale from 99.95 down to 0.00 in steps of 0.05.  So the highest ATAR is 99.95, then 99.90, then 99.85, and so on, down to 0.00.  ATARS below 30 are reported as ‘30.00 or less’.
