ATAR 2019

Release date

ATARs this year will be released at 1pm on Tuesday 17 December – the same day as HSC results.

This is so students will have all the information they need on the day to make their future study decisions and have more time to finalise their preferences for December Round 2 (read 'Offer rounds for Year 12 students' below).

ATAR Enquiry Centre

UAC is once again operating its ATAR Enquiry Centre for students who have queries about the calculation of their ATAR.

  • Tuesday 17 December, 12pm–8pm
  • Wednesday 18 December, 8.30am–4.30pm
  • Thursday 19 December, 8.30am–4.30pm
  • Friday 20 December, 8.30am–4.30pm

ATAR notices

Remind your students to download and print their ATAR Advice Notices when ATARs are released in December. They only have free access until February; after that they will be charged for a digital or printed copy.

Offer rounds for Year 12 students

The most important offer rounds for Year 12 students are:

  • December Round 2 – Monday 23 December 2019
  • January Round 1 – Friday 10 January 2020.

Not all courses will be offered in December Round 2, and applicants should check UAC’s website for details of excluded courses before they finalise their course preferences.

Students whose results are not available in time for December Round 2 can be assured that they will not be disadvantaged – universities will still have places available to make offers to all courses in January.
