University Access Pathways

All four universities have pathways which provide ATAR adjustments to students who meet certain school or personal background criteria.

If your ATAR is below a university's minimum, these bonuses may boost your rank so you can receive an offer for courses requiring the minimum entry ATAR. If your ATAR is already over the university's minimum entry threshold, bonuses may add points to your ATAR, which will give you a higher Selection Rank for that university. You'll be considered for entry to courses based on that Selection Rank.

TISC works out all of this for you automatically, based on the information in your application and, if you're a current Year 12 student, we'll tell you in your University Admission Advice Letter (UAAL) whether you're eligible for a pathway for one or more universities, and what your Selection Rank(s) for each university will be.

If you're a Year 12 applicant, make sure you check the pathway criteria for the university(ies) of your choice so that you can take any bonuses into consideration alongside your expected ATAR when selecting your course preferences.

Details of the criteria for each university are below:
