Adjustment Factors

Avondale understands that some factors may have hindered your ATAR result. In certain circumstances, we use adjustment factors, which are additional points (formally referred to as bonus points) added to your ATAR to derive your selection rank for entry into your chosen course. The circumstances are:

  • COVID-19
  • Location/school
  • Disadvantage
  • Elite level sporting commitments
  • Indigenous applicants

You will receive five adjustment points, up to 10 points, where any of these factors apply to you. For the Bachelor of Nursing, only five adjustment points apply.

ADMISSION POLICY

COVID-19

We recognise the significant impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. If you are a Year 12 student, we will automatically apply five COVID-19 adjustment points to your ATAR.

Location/School

You will receive five adjustment points if you:
  • Reside within a 10 km radius of our Lake Macquarie or Sydney campuses.
  • Reside in a designated regional area.
  • Complete your HSC at one of Avondale‚Äôs target schools.

Disadvantage

You may receive five adjustment points if you have suffered hardship because of circumstances beyond your control. Hardship considerations include financial hardship, disrupted schooling, home and environmental responsibilities, and personal illness/disability.

Elite Athletes

If you are an elite athlete, we can provide support services to help balance study demands with your sporting career.

Indigenous Applicants

You will receive five adjustment points if you prove that you are Aboriginal or from the Torres Strait Islands.
