how does early entry work as I had no clue what it was until the big lockdown

is it solely on year 11 results or can it be from trials as well?

if I didn't do well in prelims does this stuff up my chance in applying to the uni course I want to get into?

The requirements of early entry schemes depend on the specific university. I will list some examples below:

Macquarie University:

MQ offers 2 early entry schemes. They are:
  • Macquarie Leaders and Achievers Early Entry Scheme - This scheme considers your Year 11 results as well as your extracurricular achievements.
  • Schools Recommendation Scheme (SRS) - This scheme considers your Year 11 academic achievements as well as your school’s rating of your aptitude.
University of Technology Sydney:

UTS's early entry scheme is called "UTS Early Entry Program". This scheme allows students to secure a place in their preferred UTS degree based on their year 11 academic achievements.

Western Sydney University:

WSU's early entry scheme is called "HSC True Reward Early Offer Program". This scheme provides students with an early offer into most of the university's degrees based on their year 11 or year 12 results.

The above examples of early entry schemes consider students' year 11 results in addition to (in the case of WSU) their year 12 results. Based on this, favourable year 11 results will contribute positively to your application to an early entry scheme that consider a student's year 11 results. Similarly, unfavourable year 11 results may present a negative effect on the competitiveness of the student's application.

As I mentioned above, the requirements of early entry schemes depend on the specific university. Not all early entry schemes may rely on students' year 11 results as a means of assessing their application. Consider USyd's early entry scheme, called "Early Offer Year 12 (E12) Scheme". Under this scheme, students are assessed by UAC via the Educational Access Scheme (EAS) as one (or more) of the following:
  • Experiencing financial hardship.
  • Residing in an area of socio-economic disadvantage.
  • Attending a rural or regional school.
I hope this helps! :D

University of Wollongong
For UOW you can read up on their FAQ here:

Basically they take into account your results so far, when you submit your application (so you could use your first 2 rounds of Year 12 assessments), but yes it is based on Year 11 results. There are also a series of questions used to gauge "likelihood of success", basically to show motivation and a bit of goal-setting kind of stuff. I believe there is also an interview component.

Yes, UNSW offers an early entry scheme called the “Gateway Admission Pathway”, which is administered through UAC’s Schools Recommendation Scheme (SRS). A student’s application will be assessed on the basis of their personal statement and their school’s ratings of their aptitudes and performance in relevant areas of study. If a student’s application is successful, they will receive an early conditional offer with an ATAR entry requirement significantly lower than the lowest selection rank.

Additional information regarding this early entry scheme can be found using the following link:
