Understanding the VCE Qualification

The Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) is a ranking system used in Australia to measure a student's academic performance relative to their peers in the same graduating year. It is a score between 0 and 99.95 and is used by universities and other higher education institutions to determine admission to undergraduate courses.

How many subjects do I need to complete?

To complete the VCE, a student needs to complete at least 10 units of the Year 12 course (which is referred to as Unit 3 and Unit 4). This means a total five subjects. One of those subjects must be either English, English Literature, English Language or EAL. You can complete unit 3 and 4 in Year 11.

VCE students are able to study more than 10 units as well.

What is the difference between raw study score and scaled study score?

For VCE subjects, students will receive a raw score out of 50. This score is calculated based on the student's performance on assessments (SACs) and exams throughout the year, and is then scaled and moderated by the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) to ensure fairness and consistency across different schools and assessors. The scaling is done using statistical methods that take into account factors such as the average score, the spread of scores, and the number of students taking the subject.

Which subjects are included in my ATAR?

All of your subjects' study scores will be included in your ATAR calculation, though the contribution of each score may vary. Each subject is scored out of 50. This raw study score is then adjusted through a scaling process to derive a scaled study score. All of your scores are ranked from highest to lowest. Your English subject score is always included. In addition to English, the scores from your next three highest-scoring subjects are counted in full. Your fifth, sixth, and potentially seventh subjects are included, but only 10% of these scores contribute to your final ATAR

How is the ATAR calculated?

Your ATAR is calculated by first calculating your aggregate score. Your aggregate score is a sum of your scaled study scores for all of your unit 3 and 4 subjects. Your English scaled study score will always be included. Then your next three best scaled study scores will be included as well. Any additional fifth, sixth or extra subject will only account for 10%. Your aggregate score is then converted to an ATAR.

How does this ATAR calculator work?

This ATAR calculator uses the individual subject scaling from 2023 as well as the 2023 Aggregate to ATAR conversion to provide an estimate for your ATAR in 2024.
