    School subjects General, Authority and Authority-registered subjects General or Authority subjects for senior school students are from syllabuses approved by the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA). Results in General or Authority subjects can contribute to a student’s ATAR or Overall Position (OP) and Field Positions (FPs) — selection rankings currently used by tertiary education providers.

    QCAA Applied or Authority-registered subjects are from Subject Area Syllabuses (SAS) and can contribute four credits towards the Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE). They may be used in the calculation of ATARS. They are not used in the calculation of OPs and FPs.

    Short courses are single-semester courses that meet a specific curriculum need. They each contribute one credit toward a QCE. These courses may be used in the calculation of ATARS. Results in these subjects do not contribute to OPs and FPs.

    New senior assessment and tertiary entrance system from 2019 The Queensland Government will introduce a new senior assessment and tertiary entrance system starting with Year 11 students in 2019 (2018 Year 10 students).

    The new system will replace the OP tertiary entrance rank with an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) that other Australian states and territories already use.

    The ATAR ranks students in order more precisely than the OP, comparing student results using a process known as ‘inter-subject scaling’. The Queensland Core Skills (QCS) Test will be discontinued, allowing more time for subject-based teaching and learning.

    The ATAR will be more useful for selecting students in very high- demand tertiary courses where most applicants hold the highest

    possible OP rank (an OP1).

    If you complete school under the OP system your subject results and OP ranks will be fair and reliable. The existing systems will in no way be compromised by the changes occurring from 2019.

    The QCE will remain as Queensland’s senior school qualification. All eligible Year 12 graduates will be awarded a QCE.

    Calculating ATARs ATARs will be calculated from five subject results that can either be: › five General or Authority subjects, or › four General or Authority subjects, plus one vocational education

    and training (VET) qualification at Certificate III or above, or › four General or Authority subjects, plus one QCAA Applied or

    Authority-registered subject. You will have to satisfactorily complete an English subject to be eligible for an ATAR, but you do not need to include your English result in your subjects for ATAR calculation.

    Choosing subjects We advise you to choose subjects according to your learning goals, and what you enjoy and are good at. You should also carefully consider the prerequisite requirements of any courses you are considering for tertiary study.

    You can access more information about the new ATAR system on the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority website: qcaa.qld.edu.au.
