ACU admission pathways

Adjustment factors (bonus points)

Adjustment factors (previously known as bonus points) are designed to help you get into uni and reach your full potential. If you’re eligible, adjustment factors are applied to your ATAR/OP to give you a revised entry rank, which can improve your chances of getting into your course. They can be based on subjects you studied, the school you went to, or if you live in a regional area, so they are worth checking out.
