What is an ATAR?

Updated 09/09/2020 10.16 AM

The Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) is a number between 0 and 99.95 with increments of 0.05. It is the primary mechanism used for tertiary admissions and indicates a student's position relative to other students to allow institutions to rank applications for selection.

All Australian states calculate ATARs for their year 12 students.
