So, how do I use this to my advantage?
Our energy and time are finite. Now that we know how you ATAR is calculated and where your study scores come from, we can decide how to best use our time and energy for best effect.
Your ATAR can only be controlled by one thing – how hard you work for it. Ideally, you should work hard, try your best and attempt to top your class in each SAC and exam.
However, when in a press and if you are out of time, instead of a scattergun approach to focus on everything, we can try to focus on the areas that give us the best results:
Focus on your English > Focus on your 3 top subjects > Then focus on your 5th subject > And lastly all other subjects.
Compare the below 2 ATAR scores. When the 5th subject score goes from 1 to 40, the overall ATAR score is only impacted by 1.5. That 1.5 is very important when it comes to applying for the top universities and top courses. However, for every 1 point increment in the top 4 subjects (inc english) you will have to increase the 5th subject by at least 5 points to achieve the same impact on your ATAR
