There’s more than one way for students to achieve their goals. Getting into university and achieving the job of their dreams is a real possibility even without a VCE.

As the tertiary education landscape changes, so too are admissions processes. More students are applying directly to institutions, and admissions decisions are increasingly being made on a range of bases other than ATAR. *
