My Path

QTAC is pleased to introduce My Path! 

The first of its kind, My Path is an innovative tool that helps Year 10 students choose their senior subjects, determine their ATAR eligibility and check whether their senior subject selection will meet prerequisites for courses they may want to pursue after Year 12. 

My Path enables access to the most up-to-date tertiary prerequisite information available.

Log in to My Path

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
  2. Only General Maths subjects or Applied Maths subjects can be included in the ATAR, but not both
  3. Within General subjects, only one type of language subject studied at General or assessed via Senior Examination only can be included in the ATAR calculation.

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.
