Frequently asked questions

My ATAR is below the published ATAR for my course.

Published ATARs are based on the intake from the previous year. This means they may be subject to change and should be used as a guide only. We encourage you to still apply for your first preference but to also remember your pathway options.

What are adjustment factors?

Adjustment factors (previously bonus points) are added to your aggregate score which in turn, re-ranks your ATAR. Please note the amount of adjustment factors granted may be limited for the course you’re applying for.

Will I get an offer in a later round?

You’ll be considered for an offer in later VTAC rounds for all preferences higher than the course you received an offer for in round one. As long as these preferences are higher than your round one offer, you’ll be considered for them in future rounds, regardless of whether you accept, defer or decline your first round offer.

What’s a VTAC supplementary offer?

VTAC runs a supplementary offer process after round two for applicants who haven't had any offers. By indicating on your VTAC account that you’d like to be considered for supplementary offers, you’ll be considered for the courses you meet entry requirements for at the institutions you nominate.
