SACE & Tertiary Entrance

The Vice-Chancellors of Flinders University, The University of Adelaide and University of South Australia have agreed that to be eligible for consideration for selection to university a student must:

  • achieve the SACE qualification
  • meet any prerequisite subject requirements of the university course
  • obtain a ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank)

Calculation of the ATAR:

The Vice-Chancellors of Flinders University, The University of Adelaide and University of South Australia have agreed that a student's ATAR will be derived from the best possible aggregate (from 80 points) of available scores from approved subjects which do not breach counting restrictions or precluded combination rules.

The aggregate will be calculated from a student's scores from three 20 credit Stage 2 subjects (60 credits in total), plus the best outcome

from either:

  • the score of a fourth 20 credit Stage 2 subject or another recognised subject* (20 credits)

or any two of the following:

  • half the score of a fourth 20 credit Stage 2 subject or another recognised subject* (10 credits)
  • the score of a 10 credit Stage 2 subject or another recognised subject* (10 credits)
  • the score of another 10 credit Stage 2 subject or another recognised subject* (10 credits)
  • the score of the Research Project provided that the project undertaken by the student includes a common written assessment component (10 credits)

*Recognised subjects are those deemed by the SACE Board and the universities to be eligible to be included in the ATAR Calculation and will either contribute 10 or 20 credits. Possible subjects could included university, International Baccalaureate, interstate year 12 subjects or VET qualifications.
