    Easier to transfer internally or externally?

    By “easier”, I presume you mean does one method have a lower GPA requirement than the other. I cannot speak for UNSW, but in my experience the GPA or WAM used is the same.

    Could I get an offer?

    If your ATAR is below the cutoff you won’t get an offer. But if usyd changes its cutoff to lower you would get an offer. If this is the degree you really want it doesn’t hurt you to put it first. If your number 2 choice is then something with an ATAR cutoff of 89, then you would get that...

    Transfering to USYD/UNSW from UTS

    This is not a lottery, there is no “chance”. If you meet the criteria you get in (so you could say 100%), if you don’t make the cutoff you don’t get in (0%).

    Are courses at USYD genrally harder than UNSW?

    The perception of hardness or easiness of a subject is a very individual issue. Even if 2 unis had very similar courses on accounting, one might have a bit more maths or one might have a few more essays. If you are good maths, you will say the essay one is harder. One might have 9 am...

    Will UNSW b com courses cross over with usyd?

    USYD First Year Dilemma

    Reading between the lines, the OP appears to be saying “what is the best way to get the highest possible mark so I get into medicine” When students ask about “easy” subjects, they are more often asking “is it easy to get high marks” The perception of hardness or easiness of a subject is a...

    Advanced Math Units

    You need to decide your priorities. http://www.maths.usyd.edu.au/ub/daners/selftest/selftest.cgi Suggest that 4 unit maths and an ATAR of 90 or more a good predictors of ability to handle the course. However you have also mentioned GPA. Do you want (perceived) easier units for what you...

    Can I lose an offer that I am not enrolled in?

    You have accepted the offer. Enrolling in units of study is a different process. If you want to place, why not pick your units.
