ATAR calculator

Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) calculator is used to estimate your ATAR results based on scaled data from previous years results. These calculators rely on the scaled data that has been rounded off, condensed and then published by the Universities Admissions Centre (UAC).

An ATAR of 99 means that student performed better than 99% of students and scored lower than only 0.5% students.

ATAR calculators only create an estimate of your ranking.

Tips for using the ATAR Calculators

ATAR calculations may not be accurate. Well there is a couple of reasons. First of all, the marks you have inputted are only your internal school marks. It doesn’t include your external marks (from your actual Exams,etc). Also, you will need to consider that scaling will also play a part. You internal marks have not been moderated/scaled, and you do not yet have your scaled external marks.

Below is a list of some of the best ATAR calculators that you can use to estimate your ATAR results.

“scaled up” and “scaled down”ATAR calculator

When we hear whether a subject is “scaled up” or “scaled down”, this refers to whether the subject’s raw examination mark tends to translate to a higher or lower scaled mark. For instance, for high-scaling subjects, students who score a raw mark of around 65 to 70 out of 120 may still manage to score a 45 / 50 scaled mark. Therefore, higher scaled subjects are preferable because they allow lower exam marks to be equated to higher scaled marks which are used for ATAR calculation.
