My Path

QTAC introduces My Path, a free online tool designed to assist Year 10 students plan their next step toward their future.

My Path is the result of research and academic collaboration with industry experts to ensure a robust and user-friendly tool for students, parents, and teachers.

My Path can help everyone planning their senior subjects – whether they intend to go to university, do an apprenticeship, undertake further training or launch straight into a career.

Starting as an online SET Planning tool, My Path will help students choose their subjects based on their skills, preferences and goals.

For those students intending on continuing into tertiary study, My Path will also determine ATAR eligibility and whether a student meets their chosen course prerequisites.

If you are aiming for an ATAR for tertiary study entry, Queensland universities have decided that the following rules will apply.

  1. Only General English subjects or Applied English subjects can be included in the ATAR but not both. For example, it is not possible to include both English (a General subject) and Essential English (an Applied subject) in a student’s ATAR.
  2. Only General Mathematics subjects or Applied Mathematics subjects can be included in the ATAR but not both. For example, it is not possible to include both Mathematical Methods (a General subject) and Essential Mathematics (an Applied subject) in a student’s ATAR.
  3. Only one result for the same subject taken as a General subject and via Senior External Examination can be included in the ATAR. For example, it is not possible to include both the General subject Chinese and the Senior External Examination subject Chinese in a student’s ATAR.  Similarly, it is not possible to include both the General subject Biology and the Senior External Examination subject Biology in a student’s ATAR.

Your school may allow you to study several English, Maths and language subjects and that’s fine, but make sure you discuss the rules with your Year Coordinator or Careers Advisors so you understand what will count towards your ATAR – and what won’t. 

My Path will check for the correct English subject and other four subjects for your ATAR, and if we see anything weird in your study plan, we will contact your school to sort it out.

Good luck! The My Path team.
