can a school stop you from repeating year 12 if your marks are relatively good/you get an offer into uni? (1 Viewer)

I know they can strongly advise against it but would they actually be able to stop you and say no, go find other pathways?

Is this because of your attendance and Do u mean early entry? If not I dont think you can, pretty sure you have to get an approval/graduation document from your school? Not sure, I would advise you to ask your careers advisor :)

I feel like this Q would be best asked directly to ur school/ careers advisor.
but also- u can repeat year 12 at tafe, or another school (not sure if many schools in take students into year 12 though, esp if marks aren’t up to par)

Try and focus on getting through this HSC first. I think the idea of repeating has sort of consumed and distracted you, but it's something you can worry about a bit later. Your goal is quite achievable given your goal ATAR, desired course, and your school marks/ability (not like you are trying to get 99.95 and averaged 5% at school) so put your energy into trying your best right now - this will reflect positively in your ATAR and you might not end up having to repeat.

You can repeat certain individual subjects at TAFE next year if you don't feel like repeating the whole course load at a school. As explained in other threads you can definitely 'catch up' at uni as well.

you're right, it definitely has haha. thanks! I'll try my best but at this point I know that I can't get the mark I really hope for. Even if I get a few other offers I'm worried that the school would turn me down because I did get into Uni, but not for the course I want and also not with the ATAR I want (which seems petty I know oop, it's hard to explain)

Also, USyd has a “Bachelor of Liberal Arts and Science”. Have a look into it - you basically get to do one arts major and one science major in a 3 year degree. the ATAR is 70 which is a bit lower than the one for Arts or Science.

Just curious, what is your desired mark that you are looking to repeat for? :)
I need an atar of 80 and I would try to be happy with anything above that, but for myself (and to make repeating worth it) it would be amazing to get 95+ particularly because there is a scholarship usyd gives out if you do get that which would help make paying for on-campus accommodation much easier.
This year I would likely get about 60.
