IB To ATAR Conversion Calculator

Use our IB to ATAR Conversion Calculator to determine what ATAR your IB converts to. You can convert your International Baccalaureate (IB) score to its equivalent Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR).

Update (Sep 2023): Our Australian IB to ATAR conversion calculator uses official conversion data from QTAC’s IBAS to ATAR publication. Your OP will be converted to an ATAR based on the cutoffs – results should be taken as an estimate only. Neither QTAC nor the QCAA endorse or are affiliated with this website.

Important: enter your IB or IBAS score (more info below).

Enter Your IB / IBAS:
Estimated ATAR: <68.95

What’s An ATAR?

The Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) is a numerical ranking used to assess a student’s position relative to their peers nationwide, determining university admissions. The ATAR is used all across Australia, replacing Queensland’s Overall Position (OP) system in 2020. An ATAR is a rank, with the highest possible ATAR being 99.95 and the lowest being <30. ATARs go down in 0.05 intervals so the highest is 99.95, then 99.90, then 99.85 and so on.

What’s An IB?

The International Baccalaureate (IB) is an alternative to the ATAR system offerred by some schools in Australia. Instead of an ATAR, students are awarded an IB score from 24 to 45 at the end of their senior schooling. The organisation behind the IB developed the program in 1968 with the goal of standardising senior school courses and assessments for students aged 16 to 19 for the purpose of international university admissions.

What’s An IBAS?

From November 2022, an International Baccalaureate Admissions Score (IBAS) will be calculated and provided to students applying to Australian universities. The IBAS is a score from 24 to 45.75, with intervals of 0.25. For example, the first level is 45.75, then 45.50, then 45.25 and so on. The purpose of the IBAS is to enable universities and admissions centres to more finely filter IB students’ results and compare IB students more closely and accurately to students with ATAR scores. To use the calculator, input your IBAS if you have it. You can also use your raw IB, though the result will be slightly less accurate.
