    Re: To 2017 graduates

    Electrical engineering @ UTS. Was considering mechanical but I think I'd prefer electrical. Biomedical was also another option I was considering, but looking online, it seems there are next to no jobs in that field.

    I'm fairly confident that I can get in since last year's cut off is relatively low; unless english standard completely destroys my atar. I'm just concerned whether or not I get a good enough atar for a scholarship. Hopefully I do.

    UTS seems a bit of an ease for you judging from your atar est, why not UNSW? UNSW's guaranteed entry of 92 wouldn't be a problem for you either.. or do you just prefer UTS?

    Ideally Commerce @ USYD, but realistically Bachelor of Accounting @ WSU. Didn't do too well in my exams.

    There are a number of reasons why UTS is my preference even though UNSW is the "go to uni" for engineering.

    The main reasons why include it being easier to get a scholarship. Since most people would be going to UNSW for engineering, I would have a higher chance of getting a scholarship. The other one being a lot less stress. I didn't want to put too much pressure on myself studying in order to get the highest atar I can possibly get.

    Of course I did try my best, but it did help me study and take all the test without too much stress knowing I can get into my desired course even if I don't do as well as I hoped. I've seen one of my friends panic a lot about getting his desired atar, and I didn't want to be like that.

    From what I've researched, there's no real benefit for me choosing UNSW over UTS. Honestly it doesn't really bother me too much which uni I go to, as long as I can graduate with a degree and hopefully get a good job.

    I really hope Standard English doesn't destroy my ATAR either. I never caught on up to the required level for essay writing but i'd like to think I at least answered the questions. (Pre-prepared essays? Good or bad? I couldn't memorise a whole essay so just did a few quotes and techniques and wrote the essay from scratch on the day.) But I felt I did bad in both English and Physics. But as long as I get a 80+ ATAR I'll be happy.

    Well way better to not stress yourself to your limit. I think being calm results in a better performance anyway. And pretty much I'm just heading to my local Uni. I couldn't see too big a deal in going to Uni's in Sydney, etc. where it costs so much for accommodation and I'm likely to be more stressed about getting enough shifts than the actual study. I mean I considered UTS and two academies (aie and ait). But a degree is a degree. Too bad I won't get to meet all the awesome people at UNSW! (UTS, etc.)

    Newcastle uni is still heaps good, doesn't really make much of a difference anyway.
