Year 12 Students
ATAR Portal Registrations open at 8:30am on 2 August for 2022 Year 12 students.
If you have registered a little early, your ATAR Portal account details won’t match your QCAA details on our system yet. Check back again after the second of August to make sure your details match.
Have the following personal details ready before you get started:
ATARs for 2022 Year 12 students will be released between 8am – 9am on Friday 16 December 2022.
Please Note: If you are planning to apply to tertiary study in 2023, you will also need to complete a QTAC Application.
ATAR account holders from previous years should still be able to log into the ATAR Portal.
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 those 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’.
In 2020 the first Queensland year 12 students graduated under the new QCAA QCE system and were issued with a Queensland ATAR (calculated by QTAC). Students completing year 12 and their QCE from 2020 onwards can access their ATAR by creating an account in the ATAR Portal. Until 2019, the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) calculated ATARs for Queensland OP-eligible students to allow Queensland students to be considered for courses offered interstate (see OP to ATAR).
ATAR Appeal Process
QTAC offers an ATAR appeal process which gives ATAR recipients the opportunity to request a review of their final ATAR result decision. An ATAR Appeal is made by lodging a formal application online. For more information, go to the ATAR Appeals page.
ATAR Verification Service
When you access your ATAR, please be reminded that to falsify or alter any original ATAR documentation is a serious offence. QTAC is committed to preventing fraudulent activity and reminds applicants of their Rights and Responsibilities and Customer Declaration made on application to QTAC.
QTAC offers a Verification Service for sharing verified copies of ATAR results with educational institutions. You can also order verified printed certificates
