if u pick up a subject u have to do it for 2 yrs (prelim and Hsc course)

if u go to uni after the 31st of march, u surrender ur UAI, but im not sure about hsc marks, u maybe surrendering them too (in terms of calculating a UAI to get into uni)

so i really dont think so.

also, r u sure u r going to do better this yr with maths?
many ppl have repeated and did not get a better mark (some worse)
it is not a good idea to only do 2 subjects either because u will take ur work less seriously.

actualy, I'd like to know this as well.. I'd really like to do the prelim and HSC metal technics course. Because one day I am going to be teaching it. I spose I'll be doing metal work @ uni, but I'd like you know to give my self a step up.

I dunno if it'll end up happening but.

If you want to improve your chances of transferring, just concentrate on getting good uni marks in first year. If you do HSC courses at the same time as you have uni work, you'll likely drag down the marks for both.

TAFE's run a focus studies system in which you can complete 2 years in one, ie. the preliminary course for two terms and the HSC course for two terms.

I used the focus studies system to complete the chemistry and IPT courses in year 10, but it just wasn't for me. It was too rushed for my liking with assessment notifications being given out the moment you handed the previous assessment in. Some other people liked it, but no body i know who used that system right up to the end went well at all.

It would probably too much of a juggle to do the HSC and uni at the same time (timetable clashes) so pick one or the other.

Also, your uni marks will help you into other courses as well.

I agree with this, I think its a rather bad idea to do a Bachelor and the HSC at the same time - too many people think that by repeating your marks will suddenly go sky high with no effort and its just not true, you'll have to put genuine effort in to your HSC to do well, and you'd be doing it while entering a whole new level of education at uni.

But if you do wish to undertake this combination of HSC and uni, it can only be done with TAFE if you desire new subjects. More information on that can be found in the link in my signature and in the TAFE forum if you head over there.

You could also apply for OTEN,

a correspondence TAFE - they send you stuff and you send stuff back and you do your HSC exams at the nearest TAFE at the end of the year I believe.

OTEN sends me the content to read and I teach myself, if I have problems, I ring or email the teacher and they help me with my queries. When I have completed an assignment I send it to OTEN to mark and they send it back. I do it all at home in my own time...

OTEN is TAFE.:)
