11. Some were angry with the system:
Can’t fucking standing the big deal made out of #ATAR scores. You’re not going to die at 23, fuckwits.
RT @jennymariabui: #atar #vce
How can I get solid marks of 75 and 80 percent for the whole year and my #atar comes out at 63.5. What a stupid system.
RT @xthi_: WHAT IF I HAD THE POTENTIAL TO FIND THE CURE FOR CANCER BUT THE ATAR SCORE PREVENTED ME FROM RECEIVING THE EDUCATION? #ATAR
íƒ€í¬ // My
“@katcatanzariti: 13 years of education reduced to a number #ATAR”
#atar aka a waste of time.
So cool how the new #ATAR scoring system ensures every student receives a mark of 95.0 and over
18. Others turned their anger against each other:
People who feel the need to publicly proclaim their #ATAR on Facebook… You can go die now.

“@theage: #ATAR - a school is reporting its dux is actually duxes, identical twins who scored 99.65” laughing bc i failed lolz
20. Whilst some just resorted to hysterics:

RT @LiveInTheGroove: Replace the A with an S and you get what you really are, NO MATTER WHAT. #STAR not #ATAR
23. And a lot of people quoted Yoda?
RT @TAFEYoda: This #ATAR you seek. Darkness it may bring. Seek shelter you must at TAFE.
RT @TAFEYoda: #ATAR matters not. Judge me by my ATAR, do you? Hmm? And well you should not. For my ally is TAFE. Powerful it is. http://t.câ€¦
“Once you start down the Uni path, forever will it dominate your destiny” #ATAR #atarresults
26. But overall, most turned their rage against the fact that #ATAR had been promoted on Twitter:
just one yesterday
but why the fuck is #ATAR promoted as a top trend no thank you piss off plz
UAC clearly has money to burn if they paid to have the hashtag #ATAR promoted on Twitter
The funny thing about #atar calculators is that, like dole bludgers, they don’t fucking work. They’ll never fucking work.
