Subject Selection

1) University Advice

UOW representative Janelle (ex student from LIHS) giving general advice on the decision making process and post school options including Uni and VET

2) ATAR? What is it?

What is the ATAR? Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank organised by UAC (University Admissions Centre).  For students wishing to gain a place at university with eligible ATAR subjects. ATAR is a rank not a mark and this rank assists universities in the selection process for each course offered to students.

3) UAC Subject Compass

Subject Compass is an online tool which suggests relevant HSC subjects based on a student’s interests, skills, personality traits, intended career path or tertiary study plans. 

Using these suggestions as a starting point, the student then selects the subjects they’re most keen on and checks if that combination of subjects will make them eligible for an ATAR.
