University Entrance scores to be reviewed

Edited by Nelly T.

Experts are discussing the possibility of the minimum, median and top marks being revealed for all students accepted into university courses. The Federal Government’s reason for attempting to overhaul university test scores is to improve transparency in the system.

Efforts to ensure students are better prepared for higher education are underway as the Higher Education Standards Panel organizes submissions from across the country.

Students could be informed about whether they are able to effectively complete their degrees through these changes Education Minister Simon Birmingham said.

He continued to explain that both students and universities would be more accountable as a result of more information about the admission system being revealed.

“Transparency is absolutely the key to ensuring that students make more informed choices and that universities are accountable for who they are taking in to their university programs and the caliber of the students that they’re taking,” Senator Birmingham said.

“I think it’s absolutely reasonable to be exploring all of these types of options for reform around admissions standards and really is essential that the standards panel consider every possible manner in which they can improve that transparency around university admissions procedures.”

ATAR and non-ATAR entrance requirements will be looked at according to Senator Birmingham.
