Frequently asked questions

What is a Weighted Average Mark (WAM)?

At La Trobe, we use a WAM instead of a Grade Point Average (GPA).

A WAM is an average mark that considers the credit point value of the subjects you’ve completed. It’s based on the actual mark of all subjects completed in your course at any given time.

What is the CASPer test?

The CASPer (Computer-Based Assessment for Sampling Personal Characteristics) test is an online screening tool designed to evaluate key personal and professional characteristics. It’s a State Government requirement that you complete the test if you’re enrolling in:

  • Bachelor of Education (Primary)
  • Bachelor of Education (Secondary)
  • Bachelor of Technology Education
  • Bachelor of Early Childhood & Primary Education
  • Master of Teaching (Primary)
  • Master of Teaching (Secondary).

What’s an adjustment factor?

Adjustment factors (previously bonus points) may be added to your raw aggregate score, resulting in the re-ranking of your ATAR. Adjustment factors are limited to twenty points. Examples are performance in certain subjects, equity and personal factors (SEAS) and La Trobe access schemes.

To calculate the adjustment factors you may be eligible for, visit our adjustment calculator. Please note that the following courses have special adjustment factors:

  • Bachelor of Applied Science and Master of Physiotherapy Practice (Melbourne):
  • Bachelor of Biomedical Science (Medical)
  • Bachelor of Dental Science (Honours) (Regional Entry)

Read more detail on maximum adjustments available.

Can I change the courses I’ve applied for?

Yes, you can change your preferences during the change of preference period.

During this time, you can add, remove or re-order your preferences. You can even apply for courses offered at all La Trobe campuses. During specified times, you can visit either the VTAC or UAC websites to update your course preferences.

When can I change my VTAC/UAC preferences?

You can change your course preferences between offer rounds as many times as you like. For more information, see the key dates at the top of this page or visit the VTAC or UAC websites.

In the lead up to ATAR release and during change of preference, you can also book a one-on-one consultation, contact us on 1300 135 045 or live chat, or ask us a question.

You can even attend our change of preference drop-in days:
