Year 12 subject scheme
The Year 12 subject scheme awards adjustment points towards your selection rank, based on your performance in select high school subjects that are relevant to your preferred UTS course. We’ve put together this scheme because we believe that your ability to undertake a course is better measured by looking at your subject marks in addition to your ATAR.
Who is eligible?
You're eligible to receive adjustment points as long as you are a recent school leaver who has:
- applied for a UTS course that awards adjustment points;
- a minimum ATAR of 69 (or interstate equivalent);
- completed the relevant HSC subjects.
Applicants studying the International Baccalaureate are also eligible for adjustment points. UAC (opens external site) provides details of the International Baccalaureate (IB) subjects that are comparable to NSW HSC subjects.
Note: Some courses do not offer adjustment points as part of the Year 12 Subject Scheme, including courses from the Faculty of Law, and Education courses from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. The list of eligible courses may change year to year.
How to apply
You do not need a separate application for this scheme. If you chose a UTS course that awards adjustments as one of the preferences, after your ATAR results are released, we will automatically apply adjustment factors to that course in your application.
Please note, the maximum number of adjustments you can be awarded for each UTS course you've applied to is five. Go to the adjustment factors table to see which HSC subjects will give you adjustment factors for which UTS courses.
