    What is the usual requirement for an engineering based undergraduate course? I have tried looking for them myself, but the websites often don't give it or it is too vague, like for example for my course, it states that I need a '11'.
    I don't understand, like what a level grades (A's, B's etc) would I need to get in order to achieve the '11 A level points?

    The ATAR equivalency is calculated from results in three Advanced Level (A2) subjects, where A*=6 A=5, B=4, C=3, D=2, E=1. Up to two Advanced Subsidiary (AS) Level results may be included and will be calculated based on A=2.5, B=2, C=1.5, D=1, E=0.5.
    The "11" is the ATAR equivalent score. So, 11 would be something like BBC.
