The majority of Year 12 applicants enter university using their ATAR via the traditional competitive entry method. The lowest selection rank required for admission will vary each year dependent upon the number of applicants and places available in the course.
For selected courses other criteria such as the UCAT, an interview, statement, audition or portfolio submission apply. Some courses also have SACE Stage 2 (or equivalent) subject prerequisite requirements. Please read the course information carefully for the course requirements.
View the ATAR information for Flinders University. Note, you can potentially enhance your Selection Rank during Year 12 by sitting the uniTEST.
Year 12 qualifications for entry into university include:
- South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE)
- International Baccalaureate
- Interstate equivalent.
If you achieve an ATAR equal or above the published guaranteed entry selection rank (and you meet course prerequisites) you will be guaranteed a place at Flinders. We offer guaranteed entry for most courses.
When applying, make sure you select Flinders courses first in your preferences and you will be offered a place in the highest Flinders course preference that you are eligible for.
Students completing the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma who apply for entry to courses through the South Australian Tertiary Admissions Centre (SATAC) will have their IB scores converted to equivalent ATARs using the national conversion table. SATAC’s participating institutions recognise the IB Diploma as equivalent to an Australian Year 12 qualification. SATAC converts students' total IB points (in the range 24-45) to a selection rank equivalent to an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR).
