12 2014 –15 Educational Access Schemes EAS applications are assessed centrally at UAC, but individual

institutions EAS applications are assessed centrally at UAC but individual institutions ave their own policies on how EAS assessments are used in the allocation of offers. Institutions use EAS assessments to allocate offers of admission n one of two ways: hey set aside a certain number of places hey allocate bonus points. ere’s a brief description of these methods and the institutions that use them. Some institutions set aside a certain number of places for eligible EAS applicants Some institutions don’t allocate bonus points but instead set aside a certain number (or percentage) of places in

each of their courses for eligible EAS applicants. These places are limited. The institution policy speci es that EAS applicants may be made an offer o a course with a selection rank up to a certain number of points below he published cut-of AS applicants are assessed by the institution as ‘eligible’ or ‘not eligible’ for consideration under their scheme f eligible, applicants compete for the speci ed EAS places against each other on the basis of academic merit eing eligible for consideration under EAS doesn’t guarantee an offer of a place because a large number of EAS applicants with a higher

selection rank may apply to the same course and there are a limited umber of EAS places. Example eter has an ATAR of 80.00. The published cut-off for the course Peter s seeking entry to is 83.00 at institution A. There are ve EAS places available in this course and EAS applicants can be made an offer with a selection rank up to 10 points below the cut-off. Twenty EAS-eligible applicants have applied to the same course as Peter. These applicants are ranked on the basis of academic merit and the EAS laces in the course are allocated to the ve applicants with the highest selection ranks. The fth

applicant has an ATAR of 81.50. Even though Peter was eligible for consideration under EAS he doesn’t receive an offer to the course because other EAS applicants applying to that course had higher selection ranks. Which institutions set aside places? University of Sydne – eligible EAS applicants may receive an offer if heir ATAR is within 5 points of the published Main Round cut-off for 014–15 admissions University o Technology, Sydne – eligible EAS applicants may receive an offer if their ATAR is within 10 points of the published Main Round cut-off for 2014–15 admissions. Some institutions

allocate bonus points to eligible EAS applicants Some institutions don’t set aside EAS places, but instead use EAS assessments to allocate bonus points to an eligible EAS applicant’s selection rank. onus points increase an applicant’s selection rank and applicants compete with all other applicants for a place in the course on the basis of academic merit The allocation of bonus points doesn’t guarantee entry to the institution or to the applicant’s preferred course; applicants still need to meet the ublished cut-off for the course. Example Sally has an ATAR of 70.00. The published cut-off for

her preferred course at institution B is 71.55. On the basis of Sally’s EAS assessment, institution awards Sally a bonus of 2 points. Sally’s adjusted selection rank for that course is 72.00 so she receives an offer to the course. Which institutions allocate bonus points? Australian College of Applied Psychology APM College of Business and Communicatio Australian Catholic University Australian Maritime College Australian National University illy Blue College of Desig QUniversity harles Sturt University rif th University nternational College of Management, Sydney Jansen Newman Institute a Trobe

University acleay College acquarie University Southern Cross University University of Canberra University of New England University of Newcastle University of Western Sydney University of Wollongon UNSW Australia William Blue College of Hospitality Bonus points don’t change your ATAR When institutions allocate bonus points they’re added to your selection ank not your ATAR. In the example above, Sally’s ATAR is still 70.00; it’s he selection rank for her preferred course that’s changed to 72.00. FAQ about ATARs and bonus points If I’m eligible to get bonus points, does my AT AR change? If bonus

points don’t increase my ATAR, then how do they work? o. If institutions allocate bonus points they’re not added to your ATAR. onus points change your selection rank for a particular preference or cou se. There are some instances where your ATAR might be recalculated: if the Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards provides amended HSC results to UA if you complete additional courses 3 if you repeat courses you’ve already completed. f your ATAR is recalculated, you’ll receive a new ATAR Advice Notice. nstitutions allocate bonus points for different circumstances. Examples nclude

performance in speci ed HSC subjects, living or attending school in an area de ned by the institution, and through Educational Access Schemes. or most Year 12 applicants, their selection rank for entrance to higher education is their ATAR. However, if institutions allocate bonus points to you, hen your selection rank for a particular preference or course = ATAR+bonus oints. As the bonus points schemes for each institution, and often for each course at the same institution, are different then your selection rank can be ifferent for each course you list in your course preferences.
