Adjustment Factors

TOP recognises that success in life comes from what each student makes of it. Therefore, if you are intending to apply for admission our Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree, but do not meet the standard criteria for admission, you may still be considered under our Adjustment Factors scheme. Adjustment Factors are extra points that are added or used in combination with your ATAR score.

Please note that Adjustment Factors do not apply for TOP's business degrees.

An applicant may receive a maximum of 10 Adjustment Points through a combination of subject adjustment points and other adjustment/equity points.


Subject Adjustment

Applicants may receive a maximum of 3 adjustment points in their application. Points may be gained for achievement in English Advanced Band 6, English Extension 1 or 2 Band 3 - 4; or Mathematics extension 1 or 2 Band 3 - 4.

Rural and regional performers - These form part of the National Access Scheme. A maximum of 5 adjustment points may be awarded under this category.
