ACT year 12 students will not receive their Australian Tertiary Admission Rank scores in December as planned, following a decision to postpone their release until January next year. The University Admissions Center, which is responsible for producing the results, decided to adapt their release to NSW. With HSC exams in NSW delayed due to COVID-19, ATARs for NSW and ACT students will now be released on January 20th. MORE COVID-19 NEWS: A spokeswoman for ACT Education Minister Yvette Berry’s office said year 12 students should receive direct notification of the delay from their school. “ACT students applying to university through the UAC will in no way be disadvantaged by this delay,” the spokeswoman said. The change means that ACT year 12s are likely to receive their ATAR scores several weeks after students in other jurisdictions, with results in most states and territories expected to be released as planned. The ACT spokeswoman for the ACT said it was normal for different jurisdictions to publish their tertiary admission scores for the 12 graduate years at different times. “It is also normal for universities to accept applications and release offers at different times,” the spokeswoman said. The Directorate of Education has advised 12-year-old students applying to a university outside the ACT or NSW to contact equivalent UACs in this jurisdiction for more information on how and when their applications will be processed. “Each jurisdiction has a similar body to the UAC, which is responsible for processing university applications,” the spokeswoman said. “ACT students applying to intergovernmental universities should contact these bodies directly.” Our journalists work hard to deliver local, up-to-date news to the community.
