The scaling process is undertaken each year solely for the purpose of enabling a student’s Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) to be calculated when they reach the end of Year 12.
‘Scaling’ allows course awards to be converted into course scores. Course scores are used to calculate your Tertiary Entrance Score which, in turn, is used to determine the ATAR.
The following courses are ‘scaled’ each year:
- TASC accredited Level 3 and Level 4 courses
- Selected courses from the University of Tasmania’s High Achiever Program (HAP) and University Connections Program (UCP).
For detailed information about how scaling works, see Understanding the ATAR.
