In this issue:
Recently the Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre (QTAC) released the scaling report for Senior subjects in 2020. This is the first opportunity we have had to see how subjects have been scaled when calculating the ATAR for 2020 students. However, I need to point out that last year the Year 12 students completed one less assessment item, due to COVID-19, than students will complete this year. QTAC will scale the subjects each year and we can expect some differences year to year as the cohorts vary.
I would also like to make these comments on the use of this document:
“Students should not select subjects based on predicted scaling outcomes, but should choose subjects they enjoy, are good at and which meet any prerequisites for courses they want to apply for”.
Students and their parents are welcome to meet with the Future Pathways team at any stage to discuss options after Year 12.
