6  Concession mechanisms of  Recognition of International English Language Testing System (IELTS)  Additional testing (by invitation) Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT) When? …Early January 2013 COMPETENCE IN ENGLISH (FOR UNIVERSITY ADMISSIONS)

7 PREREQUISITES  Apply to some university courses, but not all. See -  Require scaled score of 50 or more in a prerequisite WACE course at stage 3 (Mathematics prerequisites differ across university courses)  Additional requirements, for example - UMAT interview audition portfolio

8 AUSTRALIAN TERTIARY ADMISSION RANK ATAR (1)  ATAR indicates your rank position in the total Year 12 school leaving age population in WA  That is, an ATAR of means you have performed better than 75.35% of all the Year 12 school leaving age people in WA  ATARs from all states (except Qld) are equivalent

9 AUSTRALIAN TERTIARY ADMISSION RANK ATAR (2)  TEA based on sum of best 4 scaled scores (TEA out of 400)  Can count scaled scores from 2008 to 2012  Avoid unacceptable subject combinations  ATAR derived from the TEA

10 ATAR WACE COURSES 2012 YEAR 12 (1) Aboriginal & Intercultural Studies *Aboriginal Languages of WA Accounting and Finance Ancient History Animal Production Systems Applied Information Technology *Arabic Automotive Engineering and Technology Aviation Biological Sciences Building and Construction Business Management and Enterprise Career & Enterprise Chemistry Children, Family and the Community *Language other than English (LOTE) *Chinese: Background Speakers *Chinese: Second Language Computer Science Dance Design Drama Earth & Environmental Science Economics Engineering Studies English EALD Food Science & Technology *French Geography *German Health Studies *Hebrew Continued …

12 UNACCEPTABLE COMBINATIONS 2012 YEAR 12 Biological Sciences with Human Biological Science Chemistry with Integrated Science Chinese: Background Speakers with Chinese: Second Language English with English as an Additional Language/Dialect English with Literature English as an Additional Language/Dialect with Literature Indonesian: Background Speakers with Indonesian: Second Language Indonesian: Background Speakers with Malay: Background Speakers Japanese: Background Speakers with Japanese: Second Language Malay: Background Speakers with Indonesian: Second Language Physics with Integrated Science Both courses may be taken (if school allows) but the result in only one may be used to calculate your ATAR

13 PAST SCALED SCORES FROM TEE SUBJECTS AND WACE COURSES  Unacceptable combinations  Results prior to 2008 can’t count For full details of unacceptable courses/TEE subjects and TEE/TEE combinations, see under University Admissions menu at If you have results from past study, note the following in the calculation of your ATAR:

18 COURSE INCREMENT For courses (except mathematics) which have stage 2 and stage 3 exams, the following increments will be applied: Stage 2 – no increment Stage 3 – increment of 15

19 COURSE INCREMENT for MATHEMATICS Mathematics2A/2B - no increment 2C/2D – increment of 10 3A/3B – increment of 20 3C/3D – increment of 30 Mathematics: Specialist 3A/3B - no increment 3C/3D – increment of 15 For mathematics, the following increments will be added to the adjusted combined marks, before the marks are finally scaled:
