Where Can My WACE & ATAR Take Me?

Government of Western Australia School Curriculum & Standards Authority


THAILAND'S FIRST AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT APPROVED SCHOOL

St Mark's is the first school in Thailand to partner with the Western Australian Government's School Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCSA) to offer its graduates a more efficient pathway to the world's universities. St Mark's 16-month matriculation program provides students with the Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) and the Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR). The WACE & ATAR puts St Mark's graduates on the pathway to success. That's because the ATAR is the standard accepted by all Australian universities. No other test or course is necessary once a student has their ATAR. And of course, the WACE & ATAR are recognised and accepted by the best universities all around the world. On the following pages, please explore where your ATAR qualification can take you next...
