New Senior Assessment and Tertiary entrance in Queensland for 2019 Graduates


​The Queensland Government has announced a steady and considered transition to revitalised senior assessment and tertiary entrance systems.  Designed to meet the needs of current and future students, the features of these systems will be:

  • a model that uses school-based assessment and common external assessment
  • new processes that strengthen the quality and comparability of school-based assessment
  • a move away from the Overall Position (OP) rank to an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR).
