    Re: FAQ: Early Entry

    did any one else have an interview on thursday (2nd) with the geoscience people?

    when I went in they were fascinated with my Queen`s Scout Award and RFS stuff, then after that he told me that it would be handy having a geologist who could survive in the snow.. strange, they didnt really talk about my results or subjects
    but i spose thats the point of it lol

    good luck to all the other early entry people


    cheers

    Re: FAQ: Early Entry

    Did anyone else apply for the Bachelor of International Studies?
    One of the staff said that not many people were going for that course...

    Also, next year is the first year they're running it. Is there any chance it won't go ahead due to lack of interest etc?

    I highly doubt it, because even if it only had 5 people you'd still be doing all the regular arts subjects (ie I've done 3 of the core subjects for that degree and I'm just in a regular arts degree), with only a few specialty subjects.

    I'd venture that part of the deal with not many people applying (through early entry at least) is a lack of awareness- I only found out about the degree when I was looking at something in the handbook.

    I'd venture to say it will be a highly popular degree, even if only because of the name. (It's a pretty arts degree with a couple more IR courses.)

    Re: FAQ: Early Entry

    Do you think they will notify us if we attained early entry before the HSC exams?
    I mean, 2 weeks from my interview would be into the HSC already

    Its weird coz i got acccepted into combined art/commerce yet rejected for straight commerce from the commerce faculty's early entry scheme.

    Not sure if anyone can help me here but I was just wondering...
    I want to do an LLB, yet i missed 2 terms of yr 12 and i know i have no chance of getting good enough UAI.
    Because I got into these 3 degrees though early entry, can i just choose them and then transfer to LLB later, and if so how competitive is it and what marks etc would I need. Also which one would be the best to choose in order to transfer to LLB later?
    that would be because you got into the arts commerce automatically assumes you are good enough to get in theres so you get automatic double degree think thats it anyway

    Marks. If you have very good marks 85+ in relavent subjects you are almost guarrenteed acceptance. A portfolio is also look upon highly for the courses that accept portfolios (eg. computer science, creative arts). Extra curricular activities are only really factored in if you don't meet the previous requirements.
    85+ UAI? I assume he means if you got conditional entry? UAC says the average UAI of people they took in in 2007 was 84.80 for Bachelor of Creative Arts..

    Was just wondering, is it really hard to get in? Because BCA only has English as a required subject, so what would you people say would be the recommended mark on the HSC trials to actually get in? Does anyone know how many people do they usually accept for Bachelor of Creative Arts (Creative Writing)? And.. What do they usually look for in the folio? The site says that students must show they can write one of the styles of writing, but what would you say the quality needs to be? I mean, obviously good but.. Any hits for people applying for 2009?

    Re: FAQ: Early Entry

    Well i dont know how much use this would be to you guys since i applied for early entry in 2003 i think.
    my trial marks were absolutely shocking...
    one in particular was adv english with 49% (the teacher is to blame, class avg was low but we all did good in hsc). I did do 4 unit maths however... but wasnt that great either.

    Anyways i applied for early entry for 3 courses and got them all except one was conditional that i get >50% for adv english

    my interview consisted of just basic questions like y u like a particular subjects etc...
    they do look through your porfolio though... mine had my resume in there and listed some academic achievements which i can assure you is a plus... school president, number 1 chess player, best & fairest, whateva... they all work to your advantage in these interviews...
    they only skim through ur marks BUT do take notice. Its all about how passionate you are about ur career...

    like any interview, doesnt matta how good u are pratical (unless it clearly shows ur top of ur class), its how you sell urself in the interview.

    Good luck to everyone applying for/going for an interview for Early Entry.
    It does take a lot of pressure off when doing the HSC but that doesn't mean you can slack off lol.

    When in the interview, be natural and confident.

    I went for BSc. Have a joke with the science faculty, they're crazy.

    Re: FAQ: Early Entry

    Just wondering if someone could answer a question for me, in regards to the early entry process and how double degrees fit in with this.

    Basically, I'm interested in one of the double degrees offered by UOW - Bachelor of Communication and Media w/ Screen Studies, and a Bachelor of Creative arts w/ Creative Writing.

    Say I apply for Media and Communications through Early Entry and get in, same with Creative Arts through the interview process - if i put the above double degree into my UAC preferences, will the two degrees automatically be put together for the double, as I've been sucessful with both interview processes?

    i wouldnt think so because double degree UAI's vary from single degree UAI's, so technically you cant.
    Im pretty sure when you go to these interviews you have the option to tell them you want to do double a degree (if its offered for your degree choices)

    Re: FAQ: Early Entry

    What should I take to my interview? Also, the marks you supply, how do they verify that they are 100% true? Should you bring in passed papers? or what?
    Thankyou.

    Someone told me that they no longer hold interviews for those who apply for early entry for commerce.
    Is this true?
    Thanks
