Achieving an ATAR of 99.95 is the same as achieving a UAI of 100 – a student receiving 99.95 is in the top ranked group of students.

The rules for the ATAR are exactly the same as for the UAI. The scaling process will be the same, the rank order of students will be the same, and the same applicants will be selected for the same courses.
