How does Better Education rank schools?


If you continue to browse and use this website you are agreeing to comply with and be bound by this DISCLAIMER.


Better Education provides school rankings or ratings based on academic results including



Lighthouse Christian College - The Christian choice for Excellence in Education

Better Education provides Year 11 to 12 senior secondary school rankings based on ATAR, VCE, HSC, QCE, WACE, SACE, NTCET, TCE, etc in addition to Years 7-10 secondary ratings. 


FAQ: Why is there discrepancy between senior school ranking and high school rating?

Terms explained:


ATAR - Australian Tertiary Admission Rank. ATAR has replaced ENTER, UAI, OP, TER. See more details in the next post.

  • VCE - Victorian Certificate of Education
  • HSC - Higher School Certificate
  • QCE - Queensland Certificate of Education
  • WACE - Western Australian Certificate of Education
  • SACE - South Australian Certificate of Education
  • NTCE - Northern Territory Certificate of Education
  • TCE - Tasmanian Certificate of Education

IBD - International Baccalaureate Diploma. IB scores can be converted to ATAR. See How are IB Diploma students considered for entry to tertiary courses in Australia.

You can find the list of schools which offer IBDP here.


NAPLAN - National Assessment Program - Literacy and Numeracy. The first NAPLAN tests were held in May 2008 for all students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 in Australia. For the first time, students were assessed on the same test items in the domains of Reading, Writing, Language Conventions (Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation) and Numeracy. Before 2008, students had undertaken different tests in each state and territory. The average score is 500. The spread of scores has been set so that just over two-thirds of students' scores lie between 400 and 600.


Legacy Ranking systems


ENTER - superseded by nationally unified ATAR. The Equivalent National Tertiary Entrance Rank is the percentile ranking based on an applicant's VCE study scores which reflects their performance relative to all other VCE students. VCE results are reported in intervals of 0.05 from 99.95 (ie 99.95, 99.90 etc). Students cannot achieve 100 as they are part of that population and cannot outperform themselves.


UAI - superseded by nationally unified ATAR. The Universities Admission Index is used by universities across Australia for student selection. UAIs represent a rank order of students based on achievement in a specified number of courses and are reported in intervals of 0.05 from 100 (ie 100, 99.95, 99.90 etc). ACT UAIs were equivalent to those in NSW.


TER - superseded by nationally unified ATAR. The Tertiary Entrance Rank is identical to the ENTER in Victoria, and the UAI in New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory. It is used in South Australia, the Northern Territory, Tasmania and Western Australia.


OP - The Overall Position (OP) is a tertiary entrance rank used in Queensland. Instead of being a percentile rank (0.00 - 99.95) like the other state TERs, the OP is a number from 1 to 25, where 1 is the highest and 25 is the lowest. An OP is a student's state-wide rank based on overall achievement in QSA-approved subjects. It indicates how well the student has done in comparison to all other OP-eligible students in Queensland.


Students are placed in one of 25 OP bands. The approximate distribution of students across the bands is shown below. For example, in order to achieve an OP1, a student's achievement must be in the top 2% of OP-eligible students in Queensland.


Approximate distribution of students across OP bands:

  • Band 1 - about 2% of students
  • Bands 2 to 6 - about 19% of students
  • Bands 7 to 21 - about 73% of students
  • Bands 22 to 24 - about 5% of students
  • Band 25 - about 1% of students

TES - Tertiary Entrance Statements.


Note that ENTER, TER, Op and UAI are Superseded by nationally unified ATAR.

ENTER, TER, and UAI are equivalent, ie. the ENTER which is only used in Victoria is identical and equivalent to UAI used in NSW and ACT, and to the Tertiary Entrance Rank (TER) used in SA, NT, TAS and WA. The Overall Position (OP) used by Queensland is different, but conversion tables are published each year to convert the OP to or from an ENTER/TER/UAI. For example, an ENTER of 90.00 from Victoria will indicate a sufficiently similar degree of attainment as a UAI of 90.00 from New South Wales.


What's the difference between ENTER and UAI?

  1. The ENTER perfect score is 99.95 while UAI perfect score is 100. In Victoria, there are about 20 to 30 students who got this perfect score. Because of the size of the group only one student receives UAI 100 in the ACT.
  2. UAI is not directly equivalent to a percentile rank among those who completed year 12. A UAI of 90 is not equivalent to placing in the top 10% of the state. The TER, the UAI's predecessor, was different because it defined the student population as only students in year 12. The UAI attempts to rank students who did not progress to their senior years of High School by estimating what they would have obtained. Hence the rank is kept consistent throughout the years despite varying year 10 drop-out rates as the rank is always measured relative to a year 10 cohort, with the ranks of the drop-outs being estimated.

TEE subject - a subject for which there is an external examination. Scaled marks from these subjects can be used to gain a tertiary entrance rank (TER).

Nationally unified Year 12 student ranking system ATAR to replace UAI/TER/ENTER

In June 2009, the Federal Minister for Education announced the replacing UAI with Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) in NSW and ACT. ATAR is going to be gradually introduced in all other Australian states and territories except Queensland during 2009 and 2010. Queensland will retain OP system due to a completely separate system and scoring scale. ATAR will replace the UAI (Universities Admission Index used in NSW and ACT), Equivalent National Tertiary Entrance Rank (ENTER used in VIC only) and Tertiary Entrance Rank (TER used in SA, NT, TAS and WA) to unify the university entrance system in Australia.


For all students these changes will have very little effect. The scaling tests and ranking process will stay the same. Any small change in an ATAR compared to a UAI, ENTER or TER will see an equivalent change in the course cut-off. The changes will not disadvantage any students and will not impact on subject selection or choice of university courses.



What's different?

The ATAR score will function as a rank of all students entering the tertiary education system, based on the number of students in Year 7, rather than the Year 10 group. As a consequence, for example, the majority of students will receive a slightly higher ATAR than the equivalent UAI.


The number given to the maximum rank in NSW and the ACT is also changing this year. The maximum ATAR score is 99.95, as opposed to a UAI of 100. Students cannot achieve 100 as they are part of that population and cannot outperform themselves. Achieving an ATAR of 99.95 is the same as achieving a UAI of 100. The shift to ATAR means that the scores for most students receiving a UAI would increase by a small amount. This would not present as any advantage as score cut-offs would subsequently increase. It also means NSW and ACT students will now be in line with their interstate peers, where the top rank is 99.95.

How are "stars" and scores are accurately tabulated?


Based on the test results, English and Maths are rated with 5 grades while the overall academic performance has 3 rating scales for you to choose. The state overall rating is based on the average of all subject results. The range of this rating is between 60 and 100. The higher the better. 100 is the best while 60 is the bottom rating. It's similar to a percentage marking system.
