    guaranteed entry 2018

    Hello!

    I was wondering how unsw guaranteed entry worked. If I reached the guaranteed entry cut off with my atar and bonus points, then why didn't I receive an offer? I have been seeing other people receiving offers. Is it because they prioritise those that reach cut off without the help of bonus points?

    Thanks in advance!

    Offers come out next Thursday, the 21st of December, so if you reached the cutoff for guaranteed entry, with or without bonus points you should be receiving an offer next Thursday.

    Yeah I thought we'd get an offer today but turns out the guaranteed entry legit does nothing

    Hi guys,

    It does not need to be your first preference but rather if we walked down your preferences and lets say you don't get your first and second preference but you happen to be successful with the third preference and your ATAR is at or above the GE then you are GE for that third preference.

    Please note the email is to remind you are successful for GE in December Round 2 (21st December) for the particular degree in your preferences.

    Thanks for all the replies! I just got my email (heheh got so worried for nothing). There is a lag period after you update your preferences on uac so unsw needs to wait until they can see your preferences.

    Not even sure what guaranteed entry does to be honest... Like the cutoff for GE for actuary is 98, but the normal cutoff is 97.3 approx, so if you got 98 for GE, you'd get in the normal course anyway? Makes no sense to me...

    It's because there is no guarantee that you would have gotten in the course normally. So, for something without guaranteed entry, if the cutoff was 97.3, but the amount of 98+ people that applied exceeded the limits of the degree, then the people who just got 97.3 wouldn't get in. It's the same as how if the demand is not completely met, they will allow people with lower ATARs in. So essentially, what the GE is for is to say that you are guaranteed to get an offer for that degree, regardless of the other aforementioned factors.
