UWA offers an ATAR bonus to WACE students who take higher level maths subjects. Similar to the LOTE bonus, this includes a 10 per cent TEA bonus on the scaled score for students taking Mathematics Methods, plus an additional 10 per cent TEA bonus on the scaled score for students taking Mathematics Specialist.
Language (LOTE) bonus
UWA offers an ATAR bonus to WA Certificate of Education students who study a language other than English in Year 12.
How it works
Ten per cent of a student's final scaled score in a WA Curriculum Council-approved course in a language other than English will be added to that student's Tertiary Entrance Aggregate (TEA). The TEA is the sum of a student's best four scaled scores in WACE courses. A new Tertiary Admission Rank for entry to UWA will be calculated based on the improved TEA.
Calculating the bonus
Only one LOTE course score can count towards the bonus. If a student completes multiple LOTE courses, the best scaled LOTE course score will form the basis of the bonus.
Language courses which count towards the bonus
The following WA Certificate of Education courses will contribute to the LOTE bonus:
- Aboriginal Languages of WA
- Chinese: Background Speakers
- Chinese: Second Language
- Indonesian: Background Speakers
- Indonesian: Second Language
- Japanese: Background Speakers
- Japanese: Second Language
- Malay: Background Speakers
- Modern Greek
There may be some additional interstate language courses and examinations available in WA schools, which may be counted in the ATAR, and therefore be considered for the LOTE bonus. Contact the Curriculum Council for details of availability.
LOTE course score bonus calculations and the TEA
Even if the LOTE course score is not one of a student's best four scores, 10 per cent of the LOTE score will still be added to the TEA.
Anyone who completed an approved Language Other Than English course as part of their WA Certificate of Education will receive the bonus.
