At Woodcrest State College we offer many supported Pathways for our students to achieve their preferred future. We work with our students and their families to ensure they have the necessary outcomes and qualifications to enter their Year 13 successfully and continue to achieve as they enter an ever-changing study and work space.
We offer quality student centred educational programs which allow an integrated three year course of study for students in the senior phase of their education, offering students a rich array of pathways to qualify for their QCE upon exit from Year Twelve.
In the foundation stage Year Ten, we build on a rich and challenging Australian curriculum based subjects to provide students with a firm foundation before progression to senior and in Years Eleven and Twelve our subjects and vocational programs are supportive of all students achieving and exceeding their potential.
What is an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank?
From 2020, the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) will replace the Overall Position (OP) as the standard pathway to tertiary study for Year Twelve students in Queensland. An Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) allows tertiary admissions centres to compare students from across Australia when they apply for tertiary places. The ATAR is a number between 0 and 99.95, in increments of 0.05.
In Queensland, students who complete Year Twelve may apply for tertiary entrance using multiple pathways. These include utilising a Certificate III completion to access tertiary pathway, bridging courses for non-ATAR students amongst other options.
How are ATARs calculated?
An ATAR is a percentile ranking of a student's overall achievement out of all potential Year Twelve school students. This group includes ATAR-eligible and ineligible students, as well as those people not in senior schooling. By calculating ATARs using the whole possible Year Twelve cohort as a base, ATARs from different jurisdictions can be compared.
