Atar outcome
« on: July 17, 2020, 08:46:58 pm »
Hello everyone,

I have chosen a degree that I am planning on undertaking at QUT next year and realised I need an ATAR of 87!
This is equivalent to an OP7 if people who have graduated in QLD in the past want to weigh in :).
I am 100% aware that an atar is a rank and that outcomes will change every single year depending on my peers but I am just trying to get a somewhat ‘estimation’ on what I will get. I am going to post my score either out of 50 or 75 and the remaining 25 or 50 will be determined by my exams end of the year.
These are my scores so far (I know my exams will truly have an effect but just assume that I do okay on them)

English- 58/75 (it’s not my native language :()
Biology- 50/50
Sociology- 50/50
Legal studies- 70.5/75

I worked so hard last semester on my sciences and got full marks in all of my assessment but I kinda slacked off on maths :/

Let me know what you think my atar could be, maybe let me know what grades you got and what results they got you (OP or ATAR Idc)

Thanks everyone!

Hi XD12345,

At the moment, since the ATAR system has just been introduced in Queensland, there is no "exact" calculation of a QCE ATAR, but if there is, please correct me if I'm wrong. However, to estimate your ATAR based on the outcome of your previous results, you could use the various ATAR calculators on the internet such as the ATAR Notes calculator (which you can find on this website) and use the QCE version as other states and territories scale their subjects differently.

It may be easier for you to put your results in the calculator as I did not want to assume which type of maths that you do whether it may be general, methods or specialist as well as how I could not find the subject of "sociology" on the list that comes up. Is that a shortened name for the subject or is that what the subject is actually called? And please note that the OP system and the ATAR system are two completely different entities where one may not translate to the other so it may not be beneficial to compare/contrast both an OP and an ATAR.

However, the UAC has posted a conversion table from ATAR to the OP but I would be cautious using this source as it is a guide for only the 2019 ATARs and may only relate to the HSC not the QCE -> https://www.uac.edu.au/future-applicants/admission-criteria/atar-op-comparison-table. QTAC has also posted a similar conversion table, which should only be used as a guide, not a fact -> https://www.qtac.edu.au/applying/apply-here/applying-interstate/year-12-conversion-tables

If you're interested in estimating your ATAR, the ATAR Notes calculator, which I'll link below, might be useful: https://qce.atarcalc.com/#{}

Hopefully, that helps :)

If you have any other questions, queries or concerns, please don't hesitate to let me know as I would be more than happy to clarify anything.

Have a great week and kind regards,

Darcy Dillon.

2020 QCE: Biology, English, General Mathematics, Literature and Modern History.
