Has anyone considered it is much easier to get a higher mark in UTS ot UWS compared with UNSW and Usyd?
Thats true at UTS in that marks for most subjects (with the exception of some law ones I believe) aren't scaled to a bell curve.Has anyone considered it is much easier to get a higher mark in UTS ot UWS compared with UNSW and Usyd?
Thanks to another forum member emailing UNSW's admissions unit (which should apply to all other uni's as it is a UAC matter anyway), if you DONT complete 1 year of full time uni study, then your application to transfer will count only your UAI. Hopefully this guy knows what he's talking about
If you wish to transfer to a different degree in Semester 1, 2005 you will apply through UAC for undergraduate study in August/September this year.
In terms of how your application will be assessed, your new admissions rank will be a combination of your UAI and your grade point average from at least ONE complete year of full time tertiary study. So if you withdrew from your degree after one Semester, your admissions rank for entrance to university next year would simply be your UAI. You could also defer from your current course in order to avoid completing one year of full time study, however usually first year students aren't permitted to defer. This is something you would have to discuss with your school/faculty.
If you have any further queries, please don't hesitate to contact us.

That is real...interesting...really. But would it be a disadvantage if a person did half a year and got good marks as opposed to a person who did one year and got good marks? (Supposing both persons had the same ATAR?)If you apply in the middle of your first year with no prior tertiary record UAC will only use your UAI as your semester results will not be released in time. However, if you defer after completing one semester that semester's marks will still count because the marks are available for consideration.
If you are right dd24...this meanss then..it could go both ways? so not necessarily disadvantage nor an advantage
sorry man, I just saw some guys asking about transfer so that's why I thought I ll get a quick reply. Now that I have already asked, could you please tell me if I have a chance? I just wanna know in brief. Thanksrahul...your not in the right thread..post a new thread about "chances of being accepted into unsw" please...-_-
