New data shows that universities have been progressively accepting applications from school-leavers with a low Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR). The proportion of students with an ATAR of no more than 50 who were offered a university place was just one in 10 in 2009, but this had risen to two in five by 2014. Group of Eight CEO Vicki Thomson has expressed concern about this trend, and says it demonstrates the importance of "pathways" programs for new university students
