    EDIT: I think got it for geographical isolation as well! Wooo for living heaps far away from civilisation

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

    Hey guys,
    if I got kicked out of my home a few days after I submitted my scheme, does that mean that it cannot be included in scheme, even though my studies and stuff were affected?

    Also, i know its way too late to mention this now, but could be fundraising leader or a school captain be added to the scheme as well?

    If your school's really crap then are you automatically included in the EAS? meaning you don't have to apply?

    A great scheme for those who are truly disadvantaged.

    If you have language speaking barriers are you eligible?

    Like a friend of mine came from Sri lankan three years ago and all his schooling has been in Tamil medium (meaning he did not learn English well except for around an hour a week of English). Do you believe he is eligible?

    The second part of your argument is invalid for EAS; but the first one is serious buisness. I believe you get your school to call up directly to the EAS office and they'll modify your application for you (seeing as this is a serious issue). Just ensure you have some sort of proof (police report, change of address, counseling, whatever proof you've got) and they'll fix it up for you.

    That's only for Sydney Uni since they believe that only those who succeed are those who have no past problems.
    Every uni has a limit of 10 I believe; Sydney accepts upto 5 and reserve a limited amount of slots for those EAS students (so they can manitain the screwed up people population to a minimum; strictly from their (assumed) perspective)
    UTS reserves slots as well but gives the full 10 bonus marks if you get them.

    The other Uni's place you in the same pool as non EAS students.

    I'm not sure if you can break the 10 points barrier; but depending on your situation you could (Bomb-collar anyone?)

    [BTW, yes I'm biased @ Sydney Uni as they really fucked up the Commerce presentation on Open day. FFS I want to know about the damn course not about all your achievements and OTHER FUCKING STUFF. 5 minutes of actual Commerce and 55 minutes of fucking marketing the Uni to parents.]

    Yes, the disadvantages school scheme program is automatic. (max 3 points I believe) You only then have to apply if you've got other disadvantages such as financial issues or whatever.

    Only USyd and UTS i think allocate 'spots' to EAS approved students. The rest assess your application and award bonus points to their discretion. Also USyd only considers you if your within 5 ATAR and for UTS its within 10.

    I just wanted to update this post. The EAS scheme covers many types of disadvantage such as doing a language by distance education.
    Each disadvantage has a code which needs to go on the application page. The EAS can be administered by anyone in the school but often is the careers adviser. UAC accepts late applications. The bonus points increase your selection rank. Check out my careers site at careeradvicensw.com
