A selection rank is the rank required for eligibility for entry into a particular course of study. The selection rank is determined by using an applicant’s ATAR, qualifications and other adjustment factors. You can read more here.
There is often myths surrounding selection ranks. To clear this up, we’ve gone ahead and busted the myths about selections ranks here.
The minimum selection threshold required for admission is based on the previous year’s Semester 1 intake period. It varies from year to year.
The minimum selection threshold is the minimum adjusted score (rank) that was required for an offer of a place. The minimum selection threshold was previously referred to as a ‘cut-off’. Minimum selection thresholds vary from year to year, and from offer round to offer round, depending on the number and quality of applicants a course receives.
Learn more about minimum selection thresholds here.
Use QTAC’s Course Search to find a course. Each Course Search entry shows a selection rank profile reflecting the selection rank required in the previous year’s January offer round. Information is published for every domestic entry undergraduate course that uses the selection rank wholly or partly, in the tertiary admission process.
We make over 23 scheduled offer rounds in an admissions cycle, and not all institutions or courses part-take at the same time. We’ll explain preferencing in the coming Remind Me notifications.
We’ve shared the next most important dates below. Visit our Fixed closing dates page to see which courses close and when.
The following is a step by set guide on how to order preferences:
You can select up to six course preferences, and ordering them is crucial to the outcome of your application. Using all six preferences maximises your chances of getting an offer.
You can find your preferred courses using our course Search. Take note of the course code for each and offer round date —knowing these details makes it quicker and easier to add preferences to your application —then order your preferences like this:
These are the courses you want to study most, and entrance requirements are more competitive.
These are alternative courses you’d like to study with less competitive entrance requirements.
These are bridging and enabling courses that can help you get into the course you want and prepare for tertiary study.
If you’re applying for courses that have different offer rounds, you’ll then need to re-order your preferences according to the offer round date.
Some other points to consider:
- Check if any of your preferences have fixed closing dates.
- Note that courses starting in the same semester may have different offer round dates. Check the offer round date for your preferences in Course Search.
- If you’re applying for courses offered in different offer rounds, make sure you order them chronologically, according to the offer round date.
