    Re: All you want to know about the Educational Access Scheme (EAS).

    Just to clear it up, the EAS and special consideration are two different things!

    The Educational Access Scheme is for long term disadvantage during year 11 and year 12, which means that yes you'd be eligable to apply since your condition has effect these years. You can't have applied for it before because you've never completed year 12 before .

    If your claim is accepted then universities will take your disadvantage into consideration - for example some will allow you into your course if your UAI is up to 5 points below the cut off. The forms are only filled out later in the year though and the effects on your schooling need to be documented by your school, a medical professional and you also fill out a bit of it on how you think its affected you.

    Where as special consideration - applying for illness/misadventure - during the HSC exams is only if something has affected your performance in a specific exam. You can't apply for illness/misadventure for a chronic condition unless you experience a flare up or worsening of symptoms during the exam period. If your application is successful you recieve your assessment mark as your HSC if your exam mark ends up being lower.

    Also, I'm not sure how your conditions effect you during exams but have you considered applying for Special Provisions? If not you should look into it because there might be something that could help.

    Re: All you want to know about the Educational Access Scheme (EAS).

    Say you redo the HSC the following year or another year, can you apply for EAS based on your disadvantage/s of the previous/first year?

    NOTE: I never applied for EAS in '06 as it wouldnt have helped one bit.

    Re: All you want to know about the Educational Access Scheme (EAS).

    are you redoing the hsc?

    Hmm, I'm not so sure about that!

    I know that if you do the HSC over 2 years like I did you can, but then again I had the same disadvantage throughout and its not the same as repeating.

    I think that yes, you probably can, since it counts for disadvantage in both years 11 and/or 12 anyway. Except when you have to list the schooling years effected you'd only list those specific years. So if you repeated in 2007, but only had problems in 2006 then you'd only put down 2006?

    That's just a guess though!

    International students have the same equiv entry marks, unless the uni has a special admissions scheme for accepting international students such as the ISAT test or their own, according to uac "International students are not elegible for the EAS scheme".

    Re: All you want to know about the Educational Access Scheme (EAS).

    when they say "speration and divorice" but your parents aren't "separated" they just fight a hell of a lot, how could you go about proving that? and would that even be considered by UAC?

    Re: All you want to know about the Educational Access Scheme (EAS).

    To have enough documentation you would probably have had to be seeing a counsellor and your school would have had to have been made aware from the start you were having family difficulties over the past year. That's because you would need lots of documentation eg letters from a counsellor who knows how much it has affected your schooling and why, and then someone from your school like your principal would have to document how long they've known about the disadvantage and how much it has directly affected your schooling (compared to your performance before). If you havent been seeing a dr or counsellor and your school hasnt been aware of it, you'd have a hard time proving it.

    Also, I don't think it would come under separation/divorce because your parents havent. You'd have to speak to someone from UAC or someone at your school I guess, I dont know how bad it is for you but be aware it needs to be extremely severe family disruption, not just parents fighting a lot.

    does anyone know about EAS??

    hi pplz well im tending to apply for Educational Access scheme but im not sure if ma situation is eligible or not.
    i suffered domestic violence from my step father and he's got AVO against me for 2years(end of yr 10 ~ year12 term1) from police.
    so ma family is getting special benefit which is family assistance from centrelink as noone can financially support ma family and ma parent are in process of divorce now.
    i couldn't concentrate on my study as so many things has happened and the domestic violence was quiet mentally traumatic.
    i have some police statements to prove it.
    do u guys think im eligible for the scheme???

    Are you kidding? Hell no.

    Btw, my friend's friend (not close) killed himself yesterday. My friend is.. 'mourning'. Same school, different grade. You reckon he can get EAS? I mean, if he can, that kinda means the rest of his school cohort can..

    Re: does anyone know about EAS??

    At the OP, you'll definitely be elgible. Have you been talking to your school counsellor or someone with credenitals (year advisor, head teachers etc)? You'll need them to be a witness to act as "proof" for your claim.

    Good luck.

    Re: does anyone know about EAS??

    hey, tht was one of my options
    the careers advisor said yes def go for it, i would get it. but i ended up go for pathways splitting up my courses.
    there are many different options this is a good one. but if u r tht affected 5 added on to ur uai may not be enough.
    u will need the prinicipal and yr advisor to write omething im guessing and the police would need to write a statement to prove yeah she has gone through this. but u r def able to apply and i would say u would get it to.
    if u want, message me i might be able to help a lil bit more with it. always am willing to


    as for namu, it is different with greiving, he would have to prove he was close to this person. weather it be fellow students teachers or parents. he would prob have to get a psyc assessment aswell. u have to state ur relationship with the person, so im guessing no everyone in tht yr wont be able to get it, but those close to the person will be able to.

    Re: All you want to know about the Educational Access Scheme (EAS).

    I've had real financial hardship in my life, particularly this year. As well as this I've been seeing Counsellors/Psychologists, even a Counsellor at school, for other problems. If I was to present documents supporting this from Counsellors and so on do you think it'd be enough to be able to be accepted for the scheme?

    yep, as it occurred in the the middle of your hsc year they should be able to accept the reason. just make sure you have the appropriate documentation.

    If you change your first preference to a course at another university with a lower UAI cut-off, you will not be considered for your UTS preferences.

    does this mean that if UTS is not your highest preference then you do not get educational access?

    Yeah offcourse, because you'll get an offer in one round and then you have the choice of accepting or not.. if you dont accept it and then there is another round and you get an offer AGAIN but at UTS, THEN you'll be considered and may get an offer in that round.

    E.g. Early round you got an offer at MQ uni, but then when main round comes..you got one at UTS because you change your preferences again putting UTS ontop after early round change in preferences was released..therefore you will be considred and may get a UTS offer in main round

    Whoops, sorry I was "Wrong." Lol. I actually advised you of what would happen if you change your preference to a UTS preference and also applying for EAS scheme @ UTS against another uni offer.

    But the right answer to your question is that if you change your preference at a uni either than uts in your top preferences then yes you WONT be eligible for their inpUTS EAS scheme. HOWEVER, if you are eligible for all EAS schemes, the other university that you got an offer for (if you did get one in a round) WILL ALLOW you to do EAS as mosts uni's accept people with a disadvantaged educational background.

    You only can get the scheme based on the institutions policies and regulations regarding them.

    Re: All you want to know about the Educational Access Scheme (EAS).

    I just received a letter through UAC about EAS, and it says that they are currently assessing me as an elligable applicant for the EAS scheme. However I didn't even apply for it? What does this mean? I haven't sent any documents or anything yet. It says in the letter no action is required when reading this letter?

    You probably go to a disadvantaged school. If you do, you automatically get considered - you don't have to fill anything in.

    Re: All you want to know about the Educational Access Scheme (EAS).

    and for next years HSC cohort, fuck wondering 'is this eligible or not', stop asking stupid questions and just submit it, you have nothing to lose and seriously, it only took me like 2 days to fill out all the forms and get all the letters and evidence etc. i was even missing some evidence they 'required' but they still accepted it (yay to +10 pts)

    put everything and anything you can, most things are accepted and unless its over the top bs almost anything will pass and give you a slight advantage
