I have a feeling this article will, for now, strengthen their resolve. More of a fuss will need to be made before BoS acquiesces.Captain pi said:Are we still going to have to through a Administrative Tribunal hearing to have his overturned, or is the Board going to change it's position once it sees this article?
UAC said:What information does UAC hold?
The type of personal information UAC collects includes:
If you are a current NSW Higher School Certificate student, your Year 12 results will be held, along with Year 12 results from other states and territories in Australia, in an archive database at UAC. If you are eligible for a Universities Admission Index (UAI) or a Limited UAI, these will also be held in the database. Your results, including your UAI if you are eligible, will also be held on similar archives at tertiary admissions centres in other states in Australia. Results held on these archives will only be accessed by the relevant tertiary admission centre if you initiate an application for tertiary study through that centre, or if you submit an application for tertiary study directly with an institution participating in that centre.

Good idea, but, unfortunately, the Freedom of Information Act 1989 (NSW) does not cover universities.Xayma said:Just a thought could the raw marks be accessed through UAC? This might have a little better luck, although they might have been advised against it.

I think James has tried to just get more scaling data, and failed. I think UAC are even more unwilling than the Board of Studies.Slide Rule said:Who says the FOI need be used, though? UAC isn't BoS. They might be more willing.
