More information on subject adjustments

For courses that require a high level of skill and knowledge, you may be eligible to receive adjustments for subjects that you successfully completed in Year 12.

Subject adjustment points may be awarded to eligible Year 12 applicants as part of the selection process and are expressed as points applied to the aggregate adjustment score.

More information on SEAS adjustments

A Special Entry Access Scheme adjusts your ATAR in recognition of circumstances that may have affected your education.

You may receive additional points depending on the severity of your circumstances. The aggregate points are added to your combined study scores and your ATAR is recalculated. La Trobe uses this adjusted ATAR during the selection process. If you are applying through VTAC, you need to apply for the SEAS.

The effect of adjustments on your ATAR will vary slightly from year-to-year. The estimate calculated is based on the previous admission period.
