Frequently asked questions

What are adjustment factors?

Adjustment factors (previously bonus points) are added to your aggregate score. Basically, they boost your ATAR. You can get up to twenty points for performance in specific subjects, equity and personal factors (SEAS) and La Trobe access schemes – depending on what you want to study. Use our ATAR adjustment factors calculator for a guide on what you might receive. Or call us on 1300 135 045.

Help! I don’t know which order I should put down.

Put the course you want most as your top preference. The ATAR requirements from last year may change. And you may get adjustment factors to boost your mark. So put your dream course first – and then your pathway options. Call us on 1300 135 045 to discuss it further.

Can I change the courses I applied for?

Absolutely! You can change your preferences during the ‘Change of Preference’ period. You can add, remove or reorder your courses – as many times as you like. You can find the important dates on the VTAC and UAC websites. And you can call us on 1300 135 045 for more information.

I didn't get the ATAR required for Aspire. Is it still possible to receive an offer?

If you don’t get the ATAR required to meet the conditions of your Aspire offer, it’s still possible to receive an offer for the course through the regular selection process. The reason for this is that the Aspire minimum ATAR requirements refer to ‘raw’ ATAR scores (i.e. before adjustment factors are applied).

For example, if you receive an Aspire offer for the Bachelor of Commerce, and receive an ATAR of 69, while you would not meet the conditions of your Aspire offer, you may be eligible for adjustment factors (such as SEAS) and may still receive an offer through the regular selection process. Talk to us about Aspire when you call 1300 135 045.
