ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank): A rank calculated for tertiary institutions to compare the overall achievement of students who have completed different combinations of Australian Year 12 studies.

Highest ATAR: The highest ATAR achieved by a student to whom an offer was made.

Upper 25%: The ATAR below which three quarters of offers were made.

Median: The ATAR in the middle of all of the entry offers.

Lowest 25%: the ATAR below which one quarter of offers were made.
