    Re: 2018 HSC+ATAR results discussion Thread

    I have a question. Since I did bio accelerated, does that mean my marks will by scaled (by UAC) differently than those who do bio in 2019.

    You'll keep the mark that you've got in this years HSC, which has already been scaled.

    Higher then the median ATAR so you've done well compared to a lot of people.

    Are you planning to go to Uni?

    Thank you
    Yes. There are still quite a few rounds of offers left.

    Maybe also lower down the list put ACU ballerat as it only requires an ATAR of 58.55 which is very close to your ATAR.

    Re: 2018 HSC+ATAR results discussion Thread

    Hi, I was wondering what the difference is between the Psychological Science course at UNSW and majoring in Psychology in the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science course. Which one would be easier to transfer to the Psychology Honours course? And also, would the Psychological Science course be more focused on studying psychology than you would in BA or BS?

    Want to ask exactly the same question...
    Went to the info day, and the lady said that there’s not much difference. if consider them all as pathway to psychology, they all still need to get 75% + over 3 yrs no matter which degree. But like B science and art does gives students more opportunities to study different courses and field. Whereas students that did B psychology but not well enough will be put into B psychological science later on.

    Personally from what I've read-
    UNSW Psychology (Honours)- bigger emphasis on Psych, not much freedom/electives, but as long as you maintain 75% you can get into Hons
    UNSW Psychological Science- emphasis on Psych, but have options/majors (neuro, vision, HRM, philoso, eg), if you maintain 75% can you get into Psych Sci Hons program

    MQ- Psychology (Hons) - don't know much but its a 4 year degree which would again, have a bigger focus on psych subjects
    MQ- Bachelor of Science or Art majoring in Psych- again depends which one you do science means more focus on scientific aspect eg bio chem phys maybe head towards healthcare/scientific fields and art would be more social science type stuff like teaching, yeah idk I put this into my UAC

    I remember going to UNSW Open Day and I asked them should I do B of Psych Sci then transfer into Psych (Hons) and the guy was like theres no point in doing that since youre basically learning the same things. Do Psych Hons if you want to be knowledged in Psych itself, do Psych Sci or B of Art/Science majoring in Psych at MQ if you want more options, freedom/ majors, yeah idk

    Btw where all my UNSW Psych Sci kids at???
    I spend too much time on this website

    Thanks for sharing this info! A bit confused though, as i remember being told that the psychology major in the bachelor of arts (UNSW) isn't accredited? So you won't be able to go on to do a masters and become a registered psychologist. I've looked on UNSW's website and it's fuzzy with the details on psychology done through arts. I actually really want to go the arts route, as being a humanities person, i can't see myself completing it through a science degree. Psychology via arts at USYD and Macquarie seem to be accredited though.

    I've actually accepted an offer for arts/commerce at UNSW, and I can't do commerce at USYD as I only did general maths. I'm mostly concerned about whether I should do commerce with arts or science, as I'm still unsure whether the psychology major in arts is accredited. On another note, I'm waiting for round 2 offers as i'm also considering speech pathology at USYD. I'm really stuck on whether I should do combined commerce or speech path. While speech path seems to have more secure employment (and that it can be a very rewarding career) the fact that it's so specialized scares me. I'm worried that after 6 years I'll lose interest but not be able to do anything else with my degree.

    Unless you have adjustment factors for USYD, realistically you should consider alternatives such as exercise physio, and then try to internally transfer to physio or after completion consider masters of physiology. However, leave it as your 1st preference then add the alternatives.

    Check out december round 2's statistics for realistic expectations.
