Depending on your ATAR, you could explore other options.
For example me and a few friends had decent ATARS however to make them more competitve we entered TAFE and repeated just one or two HSC subjects focusing on studying for the UMAT, and being more competitive.
Because you only do a few HSC...
NSW; Bachelor of Optometry/Bachelor of Science at UNSW
Melbourne: Bachelor of vision science/ Bachelor of Optometry at Deakin
QLD: Bachelor of Dental surgery at James cook university
Victoria: Masters of physiotherapy.
I sat the HSC last year and got an ATAR of 96.1..however i wanted Dentistry and it just wasnt enough.
i got offered SYD pharmacy but wasnt passionate about it.
Here is the plan
instead of going to Syd Pharmacy and then working my absolute ass off to try to get a competitive GPA ( 6-7)...
Well we know that the calc are pretty accurate , however if there off the ATAR is usually lower then the predicted one. I dont think ive seen a year where ATARS were higher then the actual one, just asking is there any chance for that this year?
im talking about popular consistent scaling...
