What Is an ATAR/OP and when does it matter?

The ATAR is a ranking given to all Year 12 students to measure your overall academic achievement compared to other final year students in Australia.

This rank is for universities to compare the overall achievements of all students who have completed Year 12. Your score can determine your eligibility for certain courses.

Don’t worry if your score is lower than you expected! There are plenty of other ways you can get into university.
