The University of Newcastle, Australia

I completed secondary education more than two years ago and haven't studied since

Secondary results don’t have a use-by date, so even if you completed high school 20 years ago, these results may be used to apply to the University of Newcastle. You can use your ATAR or equivalent (UAI, TER etc) to apply irrespective of when you completed Year 12.

It can be complicated to calculate your Selection Rank (SR) based on high school results prior to the introduction of the ATAR in 2009. Contact us at 1300 275 866 and let us do the calculating for you.

If you don’t think you will meet the Selection Rank (SR) for admission there are other options to get in depending on your situation:

  • Open Foundation
    Complete this one year or six-month program to get a new mark for entry.
  • Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander Admission Scheme
    Get entry help by identifying you are of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent.
  • Elite Athlete Program
    Get adjustment points and support by applying as an elite athlete.
  • Special Tertiary Admissions Test
    Complete this test for a mark for entry into some of our degrees.

For advice on these other options please contact us by calling 1300 275 866.
