    Unfortunately no.
    You can ask admissions at UNSW for it, ask Laz the process though, cos apparently UNSW give you the run-around (since they dont like giving out this info..?)

    For graduate med. Don't they only take into account your GAMSAT score?

    I'm going to go find out the NRSL cut-offs for commerce and economics tomorrow.

    Now, if they refuse, I'm not gonna leave and tell them that there is such thing as a NRSL cut-off until they get pissed.

    Now, what if they still don't want to tell me and instead lie and tell me the Year 12 cut-off instead?

    Should I tell them off again? Or is it possible that it's the same?

    If they refuse, maybe you should request it under the Freedom of Information Act ?

    isnt there any way to estimate what the NRSL cut-off may be for something liek commerce, and also would it be different if you wanted to do commerce as part of your double degree?

    if the normal cut off is 96, the NRSL would be abit lower right? say 94-95?

    no its no different

    I'd guess it at probably about 92'ish
    Combined Law at UNSW was about 95.80 this year

    I think it was about the same
    Actually, the 95.80 was for 2003,
    I could've been slightly higher for 2004 (not over 96 though)

    yeh, they do that and then the person who got in with the lowest NRSL dealie determines the cutoff

    that's why we don't know next year's cutoff yet

    hmm that just might be possible to get then, my uai of (89.3+96)/2 = 92.65, and if i remember correctly, 96 = distinction average, so i basically need 75%+ average for my uni marks...

    thx for the info minai

    another thing minai, does unsw use the bell curve system? if so, does that mean your raw mark might be adjusted according to the quota of ppl given certain marks?

    My understanding is it depends on the lecturer. Most of my courses use bell curves but some of the smaller ones don't. If your subjects did use bell curves then your raw marks would most likely be adjusted. The top 14% of people achieving distinction is a number I have heard.

    I don't suppose there's any chance they told you? If so could you please post it?

    i think its just easier for them
    wouldnt that mean they fix it so that certain amount of people fail? or do u mean they scale those that are >50 and those below are left with whatever they got?

    I don't think so, I think it's just to determine distinctions credits etc.

    God I just have to say, having to transfer sux! Especially with law. I really don't know whether I'm kidding myself or what. I;ve got my heart set on one Uni but the UAI is ridiculous. God there must be so many really smart people out there doing law.

    WHat annoys me more though is that rich people can pay full fees and buy a place in a couse!!

    It irritates me when people think that. Thats not true that "rich people can pay full fees and buy a place". If you look at the cutoffs for something like law for 2004:

    USYD:
    hecs: 99.6
    fee: 98.1

    So by paying full fee, it lowers the uai by less that 2 points..

    yeh, as we all know, if you pay full fees you're a dumb arse who didn't work and just paid your way through your education.
    98.1 pfft

    if anything i'd say those people who are only left with the choice of doing something they don't want to do, or having to pay full fees- are the victims of the system. it's ridiculous that the universities don't get enough funding for everyone who wants to receive a tertiary education, hecs cut-off skyrocket out of reach for a lot of people. instead people are either left with the choice of doing something they don't want to do, in some cases not getting a HECS place in ANY course, or forking out large amounts of fees.

    despite the ease of inferring FEES=rich people, lots of people don't fork out large amounts of money because they're rolling in cash, but because they desperately want an uni education that has become out of reach for them otherwise. full fees students are the ones who can afford it, think of those who can't..

    Honestly, I would pay full fee for law if i didn't get in. But luckly for me, i'm going to an excellent Law school so i dont need to pay full fee to go to UNSW/USYD Law.
    My cousin paid full fee for her B Social work degree, but they arnt rich, she just wants to do it THAT despratley!
