ATAR-related adjustment factors - 'bonus point' programs 

There are a few ways you can boost your ATAR and secure your place at UOW with: 

Depending on your personal circumstances and performance at high school, you can receive all three benefits. This means you could have up to 11 adjustment points added to your ATAR for UOW preferences.

What's the difference?

We understand every person's journey through high school is unique and want to ensure we're giving all students a chance to enhance their career and pursue their dreams.

Catchment adjustments

If you study in the UOW ‘drawing area’, or in regional NSW, you may be eligible for Catchment adjustments

Subject adjustments

If you do well in a HSC subject that is relevant to the UOW degree you’d like to study – you can earn up to three adjustment points – because we know students who do well in relevant subjects are usually well prepared for uni.

Equity adjustments and entry options

If you have been disadvantaged in Years 11 and/or 12 you can also apply for the Educational Access Scheme and STEP to UOW.
