Hi  We hear OP is phrasing out.  Anyone could advise the timeframe for implementing ATAR in Qld? Thanks in advance, Yuan

Hi, my understanding is that the ATAR will replace OP from 2019 in Queensland, so Queensland will run a tertiary admission system that is consistent with other States and Territories. The first Year 12 cohort that will be affected by this change will take place in 2020. One of the major difference is that ATAR is between 0 to 99.95 whereas OP only has 25 bands.
QCAA website has a very detailed explanation, I would suggest you to check their website for details: https://www.qcaa.qld.edu.au
Good luck!
