The ATAR is an overall percentile ranking, calculated in steps of 0.05, reflecting the comparative performance of each successful VCE candidate. The ATAR is a nationally equivalent measure (e.g. a University Admissions Index of 95.00 in New South Wales is equivalent to an ATAR of 95.00 in Victoria).

Study scores are assigned out of 50. They are the standardised scores of each particular subject. A study score of 23-37 indicates the student is in the middle range; a score above 37 indicates the student is in the top 15% of the cohort taking that particular study.
