IMPORTANT CHANGES TO TERTIARY ENTRANCE
Changes to the Non-Academic Entry Requirements for Teaching
From August 2018, QTAC will discontinue their current Non-Academic Requirements for Teaching Entrance (NARTE) personal statement process and introduce an online tool to measure a student's suitability for entering into the teaching profession.
The online tool will use several measurable exercises to replace the function of the two, 500-word NARTE statements, removing the focus on writing and placing it upon suitability to the profession.
The first exercise directly elicits the student's motivation to teach, with the second exercise measuring the student's committment to benefiting young people and understanding the traits of a successful teacher.
When applying through QTAC, all students listing teacher education programs as a preference will receive correspondence with instructions directing them to the online tool. Students are required to complete the online tool by Friday 14 December in order to be considered in the January offer round.
From 2020 onwards
UQ will not be considering 'alternative' qualifications from current school leavers for tertiary entry in the year following Year 12.
UQ will accept the inclusion of VET qualifications and performance ranks in the calculation of an OP.
At the moment they will accept a stand alone qualification, however, from 2021
• School leavers who obtain an ATAR will be assessed on their ATAR -, if they have completed an eligible qualification at school, then that qualification can also be assessed for entry independently.
• School leavers who pursue only a qualification as a secondary school outcome will not be eligible for entry to QUT on the basis of their completed qualification alone for a period of two years following their secondary studies.
• School leavers with neither an ATAR nor a VET qualification (ATAR-ineligible applicants) will not be eligible for entry to QUT.
• Performing arts qualifications will not be assessed for admission for any applicant.
Flinders University is once again offering this entry pathway for 2019 to your current Year 12 students.
What is uniTEST?
uniTEST is an aptitude test that has been developed to assess the kinds of generic reasoning and thinking skills that underpin studies at higher education and that are needed for students to be successful at this level. uniTEST is offered to your students at no cost and they cannot be disadvantaged by participating. Flinders University will select applicants based on both their Year 12 results (60% weighting toward the ATAR score) and uniTEST performance (40%).
Please see the uniTEST FAQs for additional information.
See me if you wish to sit this test.

Changes to the Vocational Education and Training (VET) selection rank schemes
From 2020 onwards however, UQ will no longer allow school-leaver applicants to receive a standalone selection rank on the basis of a VET award alone. This change will only impact students applying for tertiary entry in the year immediately following Year 12.
Non-school-leaver applicants will still be able to use their VET qualifications to apply for entry to UQ in subsequent years, and this change will not impact students completing their OP in 2018 (current Year 12 students) or 2019 (current Year 11 students).
Contact UQ Admissions on firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on (07) 3365 2203.
There are two main changes to the selection process for the MD Program at UQ:
• The introduction of a Mini Multiple Interview as part of the selection process (only impacting current Year 10 students, or younger).
• The introduction of prerequisite courses to ensure students are well prepared for the first two years of the program (impacting all students).
