UAI replaced by ATAR -Aust Tertiary Admission Rank
Universities: Posted 10-6-09 Deadline - No Deadline
In 2009, the Universities Admissions Index (UAI) for NSW and ACT Year 12 students is changing to the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR). Students should not be worried about any of the changes as they will have no impact on their current studies or choice of university courses for 2010. With the new name there will be some minor changes that students, parents and teachers need to know about.
The number given to the maximum rank in NSW and the ACT will now be an ATAR of 99.95, as opposed to a UAI of 100. This means NSW and ACT students will now be in line with their interstate peers, where the top rank is 99.95. Achieving an ATAR of 99.95 is the same as achieving a UAI of 100 – a student receiving 99.95 is in the top ranked group of students.
The ATAR will indicate a student’s position in relation to the Year 7 students they began high school with. These changes have been introduced to achieve national consistency in the name and reporting of selection ranks. All states (except Queensland) will be introducing the name ATAR for their selection ranks over the next two years. The rules for the ATAR are exactly the same as for the UAI. The scaling process will be the same, the rank order of students will be the same, and the same applicants will be selected for the same courses. Any small change in an ATAR compared to a UAI will see an equivalent change in the course cut-off.

Eligible APM students have had access to the Australian Government’s FEE-HELP loan scheme for higher education degree courses for some time now. We are delighted to announce the VET FEE-HELP loan scheme for advanced diploma and diploma vocational courses is now available also. These schemes are the private college equivalent of the well-known university HECS scheme and can assist you in paying for all, or part of, your tuition fees. So you can study now and pay later. Repayments commence via the tax system once your income rises above a minimum threshold ($41,595 in 2008-09). For over 21 years, APM College of Business and Communication has been providing people with the perfect platform to launch their careers in the dynamic worlds of marketing, advertising, public relations, event management and journalism. APM’s programs are designed to offer you accelerated, realistic pathways into the career of your choice. With industry practitioners as lecturers, and an on-going commitment to work experience, it’s easy to see why our programs position students as highly qualified and sought after graduates.
