Macquarie University – Entry Navigator
Everyone comes to university on an ATAR. Right? No, not with Macquarie Entry. ATAR is just one of the factors we use to determine your suitability for study. It’s true that your ATAR rank can be a useful factor of your chances for success in a specific course. But it’s equally true that there are other factors we can use to assess your suitability. That’s why we have 11 different admission pathways to Macquarie; ten of these assess your suitability on more than a selection ranking based on your raw ATAR or on your ATAR plus adjustment factors providing additional points.
