    Re: FAQ: Early Entry

    Once you get in there it's really not nerve wracking at all. It was two nice women who barely looked at my stuff and didn't really ask too many questions. They do write down your trial marks and basic info about you, she must have also been writing down general comments about what I was saying.
    I think they asked me what my favourite subject was and why, and I mentioned I'd like to do an exchange so we talked a lot about that.

    Also if you bombed in your trials on an exam that's totally irrelevant to the course you want to study, eg. for me I applied for B M and C/International and got in the 60's for maths, they jsut laugh it off.

    Re: FAQ: Early Entry

    Yeah, just back from my communication and media studies interview is well. It wasn't really anything like I expected. I spent ages putting together a portfolio of all my reports/certificates and stuff, and they didn't even look at it, nor did they want me to leave it behind for them to go through.

    But yeah, I guess it went okay. Just the standard questions really, about favourite subjects and why I wanted to do the course and stuff. It went pretty quickly - couldn't have been more than 10 minutes.

    Re: FAQ: Early Entry

    I had an Engineering interview a few weeks back. Interviewers were really nice. I got a conditional offer for B Engineering/B Commerce for Atar above 75. Only got 61% in Maths trial so I assume that eff'd me up. Oh well.

    Re: FAQ: Early Entry

    Hey guys, I want to do Bachelor of Journalism at UOW, can anyone guide me through the early entry process? When do I apply?

    Also, if I get in and then get horrible in the HSC, will they still let me in?

    Re: FAQ: Early Entry

    The first post (and I assume the rest of the thread) have a few good points... the early entry page is pretty bland right now cause it's still early.. but it does say "Online applications through this page will open early July and close mid-September. " Early Entry - Future Students @ UOW
    As for your second question, that depends on whether you get a conditional or unconditional offer. Unconditional pretty much means you can fail your exams and still get in, conditional usually means they want you to get a minimum mark in a certain subject(s). You've got plenty of time, have a read through the thread.

    Re: FAQ: Early Entry

    If you get early entry can you get an ATAR lower than the required and still gain entry?

    Say a course was 80, and you get guaranteed so you laze around and end up with 65, would they still let you in?

    Not necessarily, early entry can give you:

    - Unconditional (guaranteed) offer: if you place that particular degree offered as your first preference you will be accepted regardless your final HSC marks
    - Conditional offer: this varies it can be like get minimum 65 ATAR and you will be still accepted into the 80 ATAR course or it maybe get 75 in maths and you’re in.

    Depends if it's conditional or unconditional.

    If it's conditional on getting above a certain mark in a subject and you don't get it, they still want to talk to you and find out why you didn't get it and you still might get guaranteed entry.

    Non-conditional - I'm don't think they can remove it, I'm not sure on that.

    it says its a guaranteed early entry in the following degree but it then says:

    [*] Unusually poor performance in the HSC may indicate academic difficulties that could jeopardise your tertiary studies. If your HSC results and your ATAR are significantly below the level of attainment anticipated based on your Early Entry application, the Faculty of Commerce reserves the right to discuss these results with you. In some cases, following that discussion, the Faculty of Commerce reserves the right to substitute the offer with an alternative course offered by the Faculty, or to withdraw the offer. If it comes to light that fraudulent results were submitted as part of your Early Entry application, the University of Wollongong reserves the right to withdraw the offer.

    do does it make it a guaranteed position

    Re: FAQ: Early Entry

    It's pretty much gauranteed unless you decide to stuff around with your HSC and do very badly. Do the same as you did in your trials and it's then basically gauranteed.

    eg.

    2. Combined Law UOW 91.5
    3. Combined Law UNSW 99.3

    if you got 95 UAI UOW would be your highest eligible preference.
