    BE(Civil)/BCom RTA Scholarship

    just a personal opinion, but i think this is one of the worst scholarships you can get. it's one which ties you down to work with the RTA for 3 years, and if you don't enjoy it after 1 year, you're stuck with it for the next 2 if you're keen on getting that money. is the civil/commerce degee...

    BEng (Civil) at UNSW or USyd

    MoS with Zora has a high failure rate. Geotech has a high failure rate Water Engineering subjects have high failure rates. However, i think the exam failure rates are high, but when you add your exam mark to class marks, most people end up passing.

    it'll be based on your UAI, if this is your second year. forget uni marks cause they're not gonna count. you can find EVERYTHING you need to know on the UNSW handbook. that's the OFFICIAL guide. don't listen to anything else people tell you - if it's in the book then thats' what goes.
