Adjustment FactorsAvondale understands that some factors may have hindered your ATAR result. In certain circumstances, we use adjustment factors, which are additional points (previously referred to as bonus points) that are added to your ATAR, to derive your selection rank for entry into the course for which you applied. The circumstances are:
- Elite level sporting committments
- Indigenous applicants
You will receive five adjustment points, up to a maximum of 10 points, where any of these factors apply to you. For the Bachelor of Nursing, only five adjustment points apply.
