Every Year 12 student in Victoria will be individually assessed to determine a fair university admissions ranking, or ATAR.
The major change means every student will be viewed as a special consideration case because of the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
“What we’re announcing today is that every single VCE student will be individually assessed and any adverse impacts from COVID-19 will be reflected in their ATAR ranking,” Deputy Premier James Merlino announced.
“This is quite an extraordinary change. So every single student will be individually assessed.”
