Flexible Entry Scheme
Flexible entry looks at the whole you, not just your ATAR.
If you are a year 12 student and are taking HSC subjects relevant to your degree of interest, you may be eligible for our Flexible Entry Scheme.
The Flexible Entry Scheme means that you may still receive an offer for a course if you achieve an ATAR that falls up to 5 points below the published ATAR.
Through this scheme, we use wider ways of assessing your suitability for entry to certain courses than just your ATAR.
To find out if your chosen course has Flexible Entry, and for specific requirements, visit our Flexible Entry Pathways website.
Is flexible entry available for all courses?
Flexible entry is available for most, but not all, courses. Where flexible entry is available, for some courses it's applied automatically and for others, such as Media and Communications, Architecture or Engineering, we're interested in hearing about your motivation for choosing the degree, as well as any extra work experience you may have, and your performance in particular subjects in years 11 and 12.
