The table can be used to check roughly an ATAR calculation. ATAR Min Scaled Aggregate for ATAR

18 Subject Study Score ATAR Study Score (i.e. Study Score after scaling) Calculate 20% of this ATAR Study Score (20% is 1/5, or another way is to take 10%, then double it) Aggregate: Multiply your ATAR Study Score by 4 and to this add 20% of the ATAR Study Score Predicted ATAR (using the ATAR Aggregate Table attached) Eg. Health …………….. 30 …….. 25 …….. 5 ……. 25 x 4 + 5 = 105 ……………………. 51 ……….. 14. If you did a Unit 3 & 4 study last year, complete this table
