Change of preference

Once you receive your ATAR in December, you have a limited time to change your course preferences.

This is a great opportunity to make sure you give yourself the best chance of getting your dream course.

Q: I didn't get the ATAR for the course I want. Do I need to remove it from my preference list?

A: No. 'Clearly-in' ATARs for previous years are just a guide – they may change from year to year. Even if you think you might just miss out based on your ATAR, the entry score for this year might be lower. Make sure you use all your 12 preferences to cover all avenues to your preferred course.
