QTAC has published key information and FAQs about the ATAR on their website. This information answers the predominant questions about the ATAR and changes to tertiary entrance in Queensland for 2020.
For schools currently providing Tourism and Hospitality under SAS, please speak to us regarding an auspice arrangement enabling your school to deliver a Certificate II Tourism or Hospitality giving students a nationally recognised qualification and providing a pathway to Certificate III qualification to align with QCAA requirements.
Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) has replaced the Overall Position (OP) in QLD as the primary selection rank for school leavers seeking entry to tertiary courses.
QTAC is responsible for calculating ATAR’s for QLD school leavers, along with their continued responsibility of allocating places for universities, TAFEs and other institutions.
With the introduction of the ATAR system, students will now have the opportunity to upgrade from a Certificate II qualification to a Certificate III qualification extension involving an additional four units totaling eight QCE points. CTIA is working closely with schools to assist in tailoring programs and extending qualifications to a certificate III level.
These programs are being designed to be delivered within your current school curriculum.
