About Us

There’s a lot to say about ATAR Notes, but we’ll try to be quick.


ATAR Notes was started by a graduating high-school student in 2007, under the painstakingly obvious name of “freestudynotes.com”. In the years since, it evolved into one of the biggest online student communities in Australia, with over 100,000 members and over 780,000 forum posts.


Despite the change of name, ATAR Notes, aims to continue the legacy of offering completely free help to students who ask for it. We offer things like user-generated free essay marking, free but detailed maths help, and a plethora of high-quality, downloadable notes. With all of the immensely valuable resources freely distributed on this website, we hope that no one anywhere is barred from achieving their dream ATAR and preferred university course.


In 2015, we even launched the ATAR Notes Lectures, an initiative that offers Unit 3 Head Start Lectures, Unit 4 Head Start lectures, and Exam Revision lectures to students without asking them to pay a cent. In 2016, we expanded the free lectures to New South Wales. In the near future, we hope to expand these lectures to the other states and offer a national solution to the high-priced lectures students often have no other choice but to attend.


But if there’s one thing you should know about ATAR Notes, it’s that none of this would be possible without the enormous community made up of conscientious and driven young people, their parents, and their teachers. It’s this community that generates all of the free content on the website and allows us to help people with such depth and breadth. Whether you’re a Year 8 student hoping to get into a selective school, a teacher trying to do the best for your students, a parent trying to help your child, or a Year 12 just trying to make it through their final high-school hurdle… ATAR Notes has something for you.


So if you’re reading this, then thanks so much for your support. ATAR Notes wouldn’t be ATAR Notes without you. We’ve done a lot in the past eight years, and with your help, we’re going to achieve a lot more in the future.
