At PSC - Interview not ATAR and we accept unscored VCE

At PSC we do not use ATAR as any part of the admission criteria and base admission on an interview with examples of your creative work (folio) and completion of Year 12. We also accept unscored VCE. Our informal and friendly interview and discussion allows us to consider you in a holistic and thoughtful way based on the whole person, allowing a focus on your personal and creative development.
