    Thankyou.
    To the interview you take your trial results, yr10 certificate marks, any awards you have gained and also your Resume. At the interview they will ask you questions about why you want to study the degree. So show that ur passionate about it and show interest in UOW.\

    With Commerce i think they check your marks then you get an offer, if ur marks are just a bit off then you maybe interviewed. I think thats how it worked last year.

    Good Luck.

    Re: FAQ: Early Entry

    So I wanted to apply for Early Entry,
    but upon receiving my Trial HSC marks back, I was quite upset.
    I know they also mark based upon our HALF YEARLIES,
    which I got in my 80's.
    Do you think that I should not apply for Early Entry or just do it because it wont hurt to do it?
    Should I just apply normally after hsc
    but im scared i wont get the atar! I'm freaking out

    Re: FAQ: Early Entry

    Just apply for early entry- it's not like that's somehow going to mean you can't apply in the normal rounds if you don't get it, and who knows, you will probably be fine!

    Re: FAQ: Early Entry

    does anyone know around what time you can expect to hear about getting an interview? especially for courses such as law where the application had to be in earlier. does this mean that the interview will be earlier?

    Re: FAQ: Early Entry

    I submitted mine without putting my trial resuts in, because i haven't received the official results, and probably won't until next week, so that shouldn't harm anything should it?
    Also, my school doesn't openly give out the rankings, so would it be more beneficial to go and get my rankings off all of my teachers?

    Re: FAQ: Early Entry

    depends how you go in them i guess. I didnt submit my trial results with my application and i got through to the next round. check your email and you should have an email telling you if you were successful or not. if you didn't get the email, letters are being posted out during this week

    Re: FAQ: Early Entry

    Just wondering when we should we expect our notifications whether we got in or not?
    I know the interviews start on the 28th so im guessing thats like 10 days we have to get our notifications.

    gosh this is so nerve wracking

    Re: FAQ: Early Entry

    I have a interview for b commerce. if u recieve a letter about an interview they will tell u most of the things to bring and that ur marks must be looked over and signed off on by a justice of the peace (to make sure they are correct and u are who u say u are)

    My trails wernt as good as i hoped but im hoping that it wont matter too much because i have gone rather well throughout the year.

    If i can get my end of year report should i take it too?

    thx

    Re: FAQ: Early Entry

    Oh I'm so glad that I've got an interview!
    I applied for Bachelor of Communication& Media studies!
    I really do hope I don't stuff up, my trials were shocking & everyone is saying they'll guarantee you entry if you get over 75's. I got none over 75 :|

    Oh & the interview is the day before my graduation in Sydney!
    Its going to be a busy week!

    Re: FAQ: Early Entry

    Applied for early entry in Bachelor of Communication and Media Studies - had decent-ish trial marks ( a few in the 80's, a few in the 70's). Still havent received an interview...

    Should I be getting worried?

    Re: FAQ: Early Entry

    just had my informatics interview yesterday for a bachelor of computer science, questions asked were:

    Where you see yourself 10 years in the future? (seems to be asked for everyone)

    (As you have been a leader at your school,) How would you cope when you have to work as a team member?

    How would you cope given this situation (in my case it was someone asking you to do something when they know nothing about what they are talking about)? (The proffessor said it was a question to evoke an emotion).

    What is the most satisfying part of what you do? (concerning the different stages of structured software development)


    other than that I brought in my portfolio of my major assignment which they seemed to draw some questions from.

    I also recomend taking a tour as you will really get a feel of the place.

    hope this helps someone, feel free to pm me with some questions.



    EDIT: they also said that we would hear from them within 5 working days...

    Re: FAQ: Early Entry

    i was speaking with a girl from my school who got early entry last year but deferred, and she said that she only got mail but maybe this year they might send an email aswell.

    I mean, they sent emails as well as letters during the application stage, why not during the acceptance stage?
