ATAR 2020
Release date
A reminder that ATARs will be released at 9am on Friday 18 December – the same day as HSC results – to give students as much time as possible to finalise their preferences by midnight Saturday 19 December for December Round 2 offers on Wednesday 23 December.
Accessing the ATAR
Our customer service and social channels report that this is the biggest issue for students at ATAR release every year, so we ask you to remind your Year 12 students to check that they have their login details ready.
Students will need their NESA Year 12 student number and UAC PIN to log in and access their ATAR. 
If they’ve lost their Year 12 student number, call NESA on 1300 13 83 23. If they’ve lost their UAC PIN, call UAC on (02) 9752 0200.
Students who have applied through UAC can use their UAC application number and UAC PIN to log in.
When they view their ATAR, remind them to download and save their official 2020 ATAR Advice Notice. It's free until 28 February 2021: after they’ll need to buy it through the UAC Shop at a cost of $58.

About offer rounds
Changing preferences
Students often feel confused about the process of changing their preferences. Here is our advice to them: If you get an offer, we recommend you accept it. You can then remove this course from your list of preferences and change your preferences for the next offer round when you may be eligible to receive another offer.
If you receive an offer to another course, you can accept it and withdraw from the original course; or not accept it and keep your place at the original course.
 
More about changing preferences
Student preferences available to schools
A reminder that student preferences are available to schools in School Hub. You'll need your school's username and password to log in.
