    Check the diplomas offered by UWSCollege at both Westmead and Quakers Hill. I understand they are HECS funded. To check them out go to

    You cannot know if you have missed the cut-off until the offers are made
    The article from the age helps with explaining why many cut-off may change this year

    Re: FAQ: Late Round Offers

    Okay so!
    I only put public communications/international studies at UTS as my first preference, which was a 2011 cut-off of 92.??
    I got 93.95 so I thought sweet I'm in, and... stupidly... didn't put plain public communications as any of my preferences.
    NOW, the cut-off for pubcomm/intstudies has gone up by like 5-6 points!! And I didn't get anywhere near it!!
    Now I put just plain pubcomm for my late round 1st preference and am PRAYING I can still get in (I'm like 2 points above the 2012 cut-off for that)
    Is there anyone who this has happened to/can comfort me in regards to getting a late round offer in this course?? It's just annoying knowing I might not get in because of UAC and not because of my actual ATAR...
    WAHHHH
    help a bitch out!

    Re: FAQ: Late Round Offers

    I got 94.30 and a Main Round Offer for Combined Law/Commerce at Macquarie.

    I am expecting UAC to send me a confirmation letter of which Universities will grant me bonus points (illness disadvantages). If I receive 4-5 bonus points, is there still a chance I can get admission into Sydney University for Law, if people were to drop out? I ask this because I've heard some people have just scraped under 98 and made it into Sydney, and am hoping if I get bonus points before the Main Round to take me up to 98.30, that I can still get in.

    Re: FAQ: Late Round Offers

    Hey guys, quick question, I've already accepted my offer to a course, so do I need to remove that from my UAC preferences entirely, or is shifting another course to the top enough to be eligible for an offer? Thanks in advance!

    You can just shift another course to the top.

    Re: FAQ: Late Round Offers

    Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me out here cos i made a mistake with my uni preferences.
    I got 90 as an atar, put arts at mq as my 2nd preference after arts/law at mq.
    Siily me, i put down arts at the city campus instead of the ryde campus :/
    Seeing as the cutoff is 75, would i have a good chance at getting an offer in the late round? I don't know what to do, i can't believe i made such a stupid mistake!

    Re: Alternative pathways to your desired university degree

    Hey guys, I got an ATAR of 54.5, what would be the easiest way to get to university. I want to do a bachelor in economics and I was thinking about just hoping to get an offer into a bachelor of Arts or something then transferring but I still haven't got an offer for the main round... I've read a few alternatives over the internet but what would be the best way into a bachelor of economics at any university that doesn't require too much money?

    Re: FAQ: Late Round Offers

    Hey,
    I received my 2nd preference as my offer to UNSW. But I also want to try my chances in the late round for another offer also at UNSW.
    I want to accept the offer given to me by UNSW but wasn't sure what was meant by this:

    "Please note: It is University policy that no more than one offer may be accepted or deferred in each semester and as a result, choosing to accept or defer any program (shown below) will cause all other program offers for the current semester to be automatically withdrawn."

    Does that mean if I accept the offer I am given in the Main Round, that I won't receive a Late Round offer??
    What does it mean???
    Sorry guys, really confused :S

    Re: FAQ: Late Round Offers

    It means you can't accept offers for two courses. So if you get an offer in a later round, you can't accept that too.

    Re: FAQ: Late Round Offers

    Oh OK, Thank You

    So does that mean if I were to get a better offer in the Late round, but have previously accepted my Main Round offer, that I can't accept the Late offer?

    Re: Alternative pathways to your desired university degree

    If you don't get into the bachelor of economics maybe you consider the bachelor of business and commerce which has a number of majors from which you can select. See

    http://handbook.uws.edu.au/hbook/cou...?course=2753.1


    If you study at UWSCollege you complete the first year of your degree and it is HECS funded.

    Re: FAQ: Late Round Offers

    Question to the people who got into UNSW in the first round. I put in my details on the new student part of the website and was able to create my unipass, this is 24 hours before second round offers are out, does this mean I am accepted?

    Very unlikely unless they still have vacancies.
    Fisrt round offers = ~57000
    Late round offers = ~ 7000
    Final round offers = ~ 1700
    Im not saying give up, but understand that if you are trying to get into a high demand course i doubt you will get it because all the positions will have filled up.
