Frequently asked questions

Find answers to common questions.

  • What if I miss out on the selection rank I need to get into Murdoch University?

    Don't worry, Murdoch offers a range of free enabling courses to help you get into university. Once you've successfully completed either OnTrack, OnTrack Sprint or FlexiTrack, you'll be able to apply directly to Murdoch for admission into any course that has a minimum Selection Rank of 70.

    With OnTrack Sprint taking as little as four weeks to complete, you'll still be eligible to start university in Semester 1.

  • I've changed my mind about the course I want to do, how do I change my preferences?

    You can change preferences free of charge, on the TISC website, subject to TISC closing dates (please see key dates above).

    Once your WACE results have been released, you have until 11pm the next day to change your preferences for first round offers.

    If you want to change your preferences between the first and second round offers, do not accept or defer your first round offer. Instead, change your preferences and wait to accept your second round offer.

  • What is the difference between ATAR and selection rank?

    Both your ATAR and Selection Rank represent your rank among all Year 12 students in WA. The key difference is that your Selection Rank includes any adjustment factors added to your raw ATAR score, whereas your ATAR does not.

    A guaranteed entry ATAR or Selection Rank refers to the minimum score that will guarantee you acceptance into a course or institution, subject to any non-ATAR criteria being met, such as prerequisite study or English language proficiency. A minimum ATAR or Selection Rank required for consideration refers to the minimum score you need to be considered for admission into a course or institution.

    If you're eligible for Murdoch University's ATAR RISE admission pathway, your ATAR may be boosted by up to 10 points.

  • What selection rank do I need?

    The selection rank you need will depend on your preferred course's Guaranteed and/or Minimum ATAR/Selection Rank.
