Academic Advantage

Academic Advantage is Macquarie's adjustment factor scheme that recognises your achievements in subjects that correspond to certain courses. Depending on your performance in each of these subjects, you may receive up to three additional points for each one, with a maximum of six additional points available for most degrees except for Bachelor of Laws and its double degrees for which you can receive a maximum of 4 points; and Bachelor of Actuarial Studies and its double degrees for which you can receive a maximum of 2 points. You don't need to submit a specific application for Academic Advantage. The Universities Admission Centre (UAC) will calculate eligibility automatically if a Macquarie course is listed in your preferences.
