Re: does anyone know about EAS??

can you apply for EAS if you have a health care card(financially disadvantaged)?
Are you kidding? Hell no.

Btw, my friend's friend (not close) killed himself yesterday. My friend is.. 'mourning'. Same school, different grade. You reckon he can get EAS? I mean, if he can, that kinda means the rest of his school cohort can..

At the OP, you'll definitely be elgible. Have you been talking to your school counsellor or someone with credenitals (year advisor, head teachers etc)? You'll need them to be a witness to act as "proof" for your claim.

Good luck.

Re: does anyone know about EAS??

hey, tht was one of my options
the careers advisor said yes def go for it, i would get it. but i ended up go for pathways splitting up my courses.
there are many different options this is a good one. but if u r tht affected 5 added on to ur uai may not be enough.
u will need the prinicipal and yr advisor to write omething im guessing and the police would need to write a statement to prove yeah she has gone through this. but u r def able to apply and i would say u would get it to.
if u want, message me i might be able to help a lil bit more with it. always am willing to


as for namu, it is different with greiving, he would have to prove he was close to this person. weather it be fellow students teachers or parents. he would prob have to get a psyc assessment aswell. u have to state ur relationship with the person, so im guessing no everyone in tht yr wont be able to get it, but those close to the person will be able to.

I've had real financial hardship in my life, particularly this year. As well as this I've been seeing Counsellors/Psychologists, even a Counsellor at school, for other problems. If I was to present documents supporting this from Counsellors and so on do you think it'd be enough to be able to be accepted for the scheme?

yep, as it occurred in the the middle of your hsc year they should be able to accept the reason. just make sure you have the appropriate documentation.

Yeah offcourse, because you'll get an offer in one round and then you have the choice of accepting or not.. if you dont accept it and then there is another round and you get an offer AGAIN but at UTS, THEN you'll be considered and may get an offer in that round.

E.g. Early round you got an offer at MQ uni, but then when main round comes..you got one at UTS because you change your preferences again putting UTS ontop after early round change in preferences was released..therefore you will be considred and may get a UTS offer in main round

If you change your first preference to a course at another university with a lower UAI cut-off, you will not be considered for your UTS preferences.

inpUTS Educational Access Scheme : UTS Equity and Diversity

does this mean that if UTS is not your highest preference then you do not get educational access?
Whoops, sorry I was "Wrong." Lol. I actually advised you of what would happen if you change your preference to a UTS preference and also applying for EAS scheme @ UTS against another uni offer.

But the right answer to your question is that if you change your preference at a uni either than uts in your top preferences then yes you WONT be eligible for their inpUTS EAS scheme. HOWEVER, if you are eligible for all EAS schemes, the other university that you got an offer for (if you did get one in a round) WILL ALLOW you to do EAS as mosts uni's accept people with a disadvantaged educational background.

You only can get the scheme based on the institutions policies and regulations regarding them.

I just received a letter through UAC about EAS, and it says that they are currently assessing me as an elligable applicant for the EAS scheme. However I didn't even apply for it? What does this mean? I haven't sent any documents or anything yet. It says in the letter no action is required when reading this letter?

You probably go to a disadvantaged school. If you do, you automatically get considered - you don't have to fill anything in.

and for next years HSC cohort, fuck wondering 'is this eligible or not', stop asking stupid questions and just submit it, you have nothing to lose and seriously, it only took me like 2 days to fill out all the forms and get all the letters and evidence etc. i was even missing some evidence they 'required' but they still accepted it (yay to +10 pts)

put everything and anything you can, most things are accepted and unless its over the top bs almost anything will pass and give you a slight advantage

hsc = game = play

I got the letter as well. I think its because i go to a crap school. One of my friends got it as well.
EDIT: I think got it for geographical isolation as well! Wooo for living heaps far away from civilisation

Hey guys,
if I got kicked out of my home a few days after I submitted my scheme, does that mean that it cannot be included in scheme, even though my studies and stuff were affected?

Also, i know its way too late to mention this now, but could be fundraising leader or a school captain be added to the scheme as well?

If your school's really crap then are you automatically included in the EAS? meaning you don't have to apply?
