NOTE TO ALL YOU KIDS WHO DIDN'T MAKE THE CUTOFF -

APPLY FOR THE COURSE ANYWAYS, ATAR'S ARE INFLATED FOR ENTRY, YOU CAN DEFINITELY GET IN IF YOU'RE EVEN 3-4 ATAR BELOW THE CUTOFF. There is NO harm in making your initial wanted course your first preference. It is SILLY to randomly change your preferences only because you missed out by 2-3 ATAR.

A few mates of mine have gotten in with 5+ below the requirements, this includes high-demand courses like Commerce @ UNSW. There are also a few people who got into Law @ USYD with like 98.

Point is, do not change your preferences even if you got below the requirement, you may never know your luck.

Congrats to all.

I cannot echo your advice anymore. A friend at my school 2 years ago received an ATAR 2.5 below the cutoff for a course with a rather small cohort or class in the specific degree. She left it first the entire time, change things below it every now and then - In the third round, she got an offer.

Cut-offs are inflated to encourage people to get great marks, but people will defer, reject the offer and sometimes the class size is just increased.

Good luck to everyone.

HAAAAAAAA GOT 90 WITHOUT MATHS!!!

On a more a serious note, matrix predicted 94 so yeah it's quite accurate.
And a more serious question, i'm 0.65 away from a course @ USYD, is there any chance they will pity me and let me in?
edit: so basically whats been said above

the courses are always based on demand. so if your course has a lesser demand than this year, there's a decent chance you'll get in. However, if there's a higher demand, then you might not. Basically, you don't know til you get the offer, but definitely put it down as your first option :) good luck!

Thanks for that - I thought my USYD law dreams were dashed as my ATAR was conveniently 0.05 below last year's cutoff.
