does this transferring into commerce thing only apply to students currently in UNSW?ace said:from unsw admissions today minai
(assume here, you have completed at least 1 year FTE)
Transferring to commerce;
they take the mark that is the highest, so either your secondary or teritary marks
Transferring to law;
Well that's from the head of the Admissions at UNSW anyhow. The marks from GPA turn into a mark, etc. the same as above (for the conversion part). You then get ranked against everyone else, as usual.
E.g. get 6.5 GPA, hello BCom, etc.
This ques may sound bit irrelevant but still asking u; firstly i thank u in advance for ur inputs.epsilon said:Yo dudes, I was just browsing through this thread, and I realised that Grizzly, who got a lower sum of UAI +Uni mark, managed to transfer successfully into B. Com UNSW while ace who supposedly got a higher combined mark didn't. What the...? What does this mean then? Is the selection purely based on those 2 marks, or do they take stuff like extra-curricular activites into consideration as well? If its purely on marks, how do you explain Grizzly's case then?
Oh yeah, and btw, about the uni mark, how do I count mine? Like do I take all the marks I got from my tutor for a subject, and average them up, to get my year's average grade for that subject, or what?
does anyone have the answer to this question?velox said:Just confirming that UNSW takes the better of UAI/GPA for transfers into Eco/Comm degrees? If you fail a subject at uni and your uai is high enough, would that affect your chances?
Lexicographer said:Yes, except the "generally first years are not permitted to defer". Most schools will allow you to defer second semester of first year at UTS.
Also, UTS has its own Internal Transfer structure, so you don't have to apply through UAC for every little thing. It also means that for UTS to UTS transfer your GPA is the only thing that will count.
Yes, you will be assessed for admission on the best of either your UAI or GPA. This is the case for the Australian School of Business and some other faculties, except for some courses such as law which is a 50/50 - UAI/GPA. In your case, your tertiary results will be disregarded, taking into account your UAI only.velox said:Just confirming that UNSW takes the better of UAI/GPA for transfers into Eco/Comm degrees?

Looking at some of the previous posts in this thread a Credit/Distinction will give you a fighting chance of getting in those courses. If you get those marks, UAI won't be included in your admission rank.scottyscottysco said:im in my first year at unsw doing social science with a uai of 79.4. anyone kno what kinda uni marks ill need to get into commerce (95) or economics (91)??
