-Getting it right!
The following pages are tips on getting your applications in.
I would like all applications completed by the end of WEEK 5.
I will be away from the end of week 6 and with the computer upgrades occurring, we may not have internet when it is required. Also, most of you have exams this week.
Please make an appointment with me, bring your list of courses to which you have given careful consideration and followed tips in this booklet.
I am happy to make appointments after school if I do not have a meeting.
To your success!
Selecting your courses in both UAC and QTAC in order of preference.
By now you will have considered your choices for Tertiary Study. It is important that you research these carefully, being mindful of any prerequisites and ATAR. Write these down on the UAC/QTAC proforma provided to you. Include the course code.
Your order would be:
1. First Choice. Any course to which you are applying for Early Entry, unless you are applying directly to SCU or UNE.
OR your ideal course. (You can change the order if you don't get in. Details later)
2. Your second choice could be in the same University as your first choice, but in a course with a lower ATAR if you are very keen on this University.
3. Your third choice could be the course you are after at another campus OR Back-up courses, which may include courses in other Universities with lower ATARS. Alternatively, other courses you may be happy with, should you miss out on your top two preferences. Do the same for preference 4/5 with another course.
4. Preference 5 and 6 could include pathway courses here, eg, Griffith College. PLEASE read details about these courses. They are on FEE-HELP and not HECS, which is more expensive, but you will be given credit points and a guaranteed entry into most Bachelors Degrees on the successful completion of a Diploma. Please check details on these courses if you are interested.
ALSO, Find out if you are eligible for Youth Allowance if you select courses where you will live away from home.
