    UTS -------> to UNSW

    Okay so, my exams are next week, and I have had a pretty great semester, so i was wondering...Next semester in case the work gets harder. What avg WAM should I try to maintain in order to transfer to either Usyd or UNSW (software engineering or Advanced computing)

    This is how my transcript for semester 1 is looking at the moment

    BRM: 87+(overall HD,got 90s in all assessment except final exam)
    Math Mod 1: 86+(should get HD overall, 90s in all assessments except final exam)
    Prog Fundamentals : 87(Confirmed HD)
    EngComm : 65+(Credit...don't ask).


    I am confident I can get a HD or very high D average (approx 82-84).

    What WAM/GPA should I try to maintain next semester, to pretty much give me a good chance of successfully transferring.

    Anywhere between high 70’s to 80 will be good.

    You won't know what you get till you do your finals...

    But you should be fine according to your estimate.

    Re: UTS -------> to UNSW

    Okay my last semesters GPA was 4/4 based on the UTS scale, I have done 2/3 exams and Thursdays my last exam , to be honest I am expecting a GPA of 3.5+ for the two semesters combined and a WAM of 85+.

    My first two exams have been really good and math modelling 2 is already done , so what do you think my chances are with a GPA of 3.6-3.8/4 or 6.6-6.8/7 (UNSW scale) to transfer to a software engineering degree

    As far as I know, anything above 6.0 GPA makes you a competitive applicant so a 6.6+ should basically guarantee you a transfer into software engineering. Good luck with your last exam and the transfer!

    You need like a 65/70 WAM to transfer into software engineering lol, 85 will get you into anything that you want that you are eligible for

    I just got an offer from USYD, but not from UNSW, it said it got awarded to more competitive students.

    Should I wait for main rounds or just accept this, i don't know who they gave offers to 7/7 GPA, I thought 6.4/7 would of been enough.

    Accept usyd’s offer just for now, remove it from preferences, leave unsw pref as first pref for main rounds and see what happens.
