How are IB Diploma students considered for entry to tertiary courses in Australia?

IB scores are converted a national ATAR-like value called Combined Rank because it is a national conversion which combines results from across all states. This means that IB students can apply in any Australian state or territory with confidence about how their results compare to their peers who have completed state curricula and received an ATAR.

How are IB Diploma students considered for entry to tertiary courses through QTAC?

Converting an IB score to a QTAC Selection Rank is a two step process:

  1. Convert IB score to a ‘Combined Rank’ according to the rules agreed nationally.
  2. QTAC converts the combined rank to a QTAC Selection Rank. (Differing terminology is used in other states, eg some states refer to this as a ‘notional ATAR’.)

QTAC OP bands to a QTAC selection rank / ATAR rank

QTAC selection rank / OP and ATAR comparisons:
  1. Compare OPs with QTAC selection ranks
  2. Compare ATARs with QTAC selection ranks

QTAC, a not-for-profit organisation which is owned by seven Queensland universities calculates and awards ATARs

There is no possible direct translation of OP to ATAR because the two are derived from different sets of information and by different statistical methods. As a rough guide, the above table provides details of the lowest ATARs awarded within each OP band for OPs awarded in 2019. Please note, the lowest ATARs awarded within each OP band varied slightly year to year based on Year 12 achievement patterns.
