Non-ATAR students

If you are not studying four WACE Courses at Stage 2 or above (i.e. you are not an ATAR student), then you are considered a non-ATAR student.

Applying to undergraduate courses

  • The requirements of the Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE)
  • Any prerequisites for the course you want to apply and;
  • Have successfully completed at least 3 subjects at Stage 2 or above and 1 subject at Stage 1
