Regional location adjustment

We know sometimes regional schools don't have the same advantages as bigger city schools, so if you're completing high school in a regional area we'll automatically adjust your selection rank by five points, as part of our Regional Location Adjustment scheme (previously known as the Regional Bonus Points scheme). Best of all, you don't have to do a thing to get it – the adjustment will automatically be made when you apply.

For Year 12 students, adjustments are made based on the school you attended and not your home address. Students who are not completing school will have adjustments made based on their home postcode.

Location adjustments are not available to students attending school or living in one of the following postcodes:
