Worried that you will not meet these minimum scores? Not a problem - please have a look at our International Academic Entry Program where we may be able consider your eligibility based on your academic performance in Mathematics. 

If you cannot find your program's cut-off requirement, please do not hesitate to submit an application and our admissions team will provide with updates as soon as possible.

International Academic Entry Program

At Macquarie, we recognise that our future leaders and entrepreneurs are more than just their high school scores. Should you not meet our minimum score cut offs for entry into one of our undergraduate courses, our International Academic Entry Program (IAEP) will consider your performance in your final-year senior high school Mathematics subject(s) as an alternative indicator provided you already meet the English requirements for your selected degree program. Some programs may require scores in other subject areas as well as Mathematics.

Listed below are all undergraduate courses with the minimum General Mathematics, Mathematics and/or Extension Mathematics scores that applicants would need to achieve in the Higher School Certificate (HSC) - this is the Year 12 senior high school qualification that is completed by students residing in New South Wales, Australia. We will consider equivalent final-year Mathematics and other subjects from international senior high school qualifications or university entry examinations for the purpose of the IEAP.

Please note you do not have to apply for the International Academic Entry Program as our Admissions team will use your high school Mathematics subject scores to calculate the equivalent HSC scores and determine your eligibility. In some cases, scores in other subject areas may be required.
