What if I didn’t get the ATAR I planned for?

If you left school without achieving the results you need to enter a specific course of study or a particular career field, don’t let that hold you back.

So you didn’t get the ATAR you were aiming for – now what? 

While many Universities see this score as a key predictor of success in tertiary education, your ATAR does not take into account many other factors and skills that can take you where you want to be in life.

ACBC has a waived ATAR requirement, making vocational skills training accessible to those of all abilities. Rather than focusing on your school scores, at ACBC we focus on student performance at the qualification level. 

Whether your goal is to get to University or launch your career, ACBC breaks down the barriers that stand between you and your future. Every aspect of our college supports you in your study journey and goals. 

With a dedicated Work Placement team and Careers Advisors, ACBC will guide you every step of the way.

If your goal is to continue your studies before entering the workforce, you can gain credit transfer towards undergraduate degrees with various Australian universities. ACBC has direct affiliation with several universities. Learn more about our University Pathways here.

All our qualifications are paired with hands-on work experience. This means that when you graduate from our College, you will not only have a Nationally Recognised Qualification, but also relevant industry experience that will help to accelerate your opportunities.

Book a one-on-one meeting with our Careers Advisors to learn how ACBC can help you plan your pathway to University or achieve your future career goals.
