Coding notes

  • The tertiary entrance score to be reported is the integer portion of the value for the common index that has been agreed by MCEETYA (NSW: UAI; SA and NT: TER; Tas: TER; Vic: ENTER; WA: TER.). For Higher Education Providers in Queensland, the "OP" values are to be converted to an equivalent value for the common index.
  • The values for the common index will range from 30.00 to 99.95. Those values are to be reported with no fractional portion. The fractional portion may be disregarded or rounded. Therefore, the values to be reported must fall within the range of 030 to 100.
  • To be reported for all students and the data should reflect the basis of entry when commencing their course.
  • To be reported in the cases where students have been processed by Tertiary Admissions Centres (TACs) only.
  • If your institution is unable to report the tertiary entrance score for a student, leave this field blank.
