Calls for the advanced assessment system for uni qualification rises, amid 2019 HSC, VCE and WACE underway

HSC exams are getting underway around the country

As the year 12 students began to head to the HSC exams from last week, the debates on the validity of the ATAR, which converts the HSC exam result scores into a percentage, has been re-sparked.

Former NSW minister for education, Adrian Piccoli urged that the ATAR score should be abolished as it is insufficient index for students, universities and industries.


ATAR simply lines up students based on the exam results and is not representative of various abilities students acquire during their education, hence a new improved tertiary entrance examination method will be necessitated in the future.


On the other hand, universities argue that there is no other method than ATAR that are more objective and efficient, at the same time admit that there should be improvements for fixing the weak points of ATAR system.

The weekly 'Education Anatomy' analyses the debates on the system.
