Regional location adjustment

We realise sometimes regional schools don't have the same advantages as city schools.

So if you're completing high school in a regional area, we'll automatically adjust your selection rank by five points when you apply as part of our Regional Location Adjustment scheme.*

  • If you're in Year 12, adjustments are made based on the school you attended and not your home address.
  • If you're not completing high school, adjustments are made based on your home postcode.
  • Location adjustments are not available if you're attending school or living in one of the following postcodes:
