I got 99.60 ATAR, and I am stressing out about not getting into Law at Usyd/UNSW. After playing around with ATAR calculators, I have found that getting 1 additional mark in any of my subjects increases my ATAR to 99.65, which would give me a better chance at getting into Law.

Also, does anyone know how long these Mark Rechecks take?? Cause I want to get it done before first round offers..

Thanks

It generally takes around 2 weeks so probs not before offers sorry. And tbh, I doubt they made a mistake and even if they did, going from a .6 to a .7 ATAR will require them to be wrong by at least a few raw marks. Do you think they made a mistake?

I emailed unsw law and said they don't accept AAA.

I'm gonna double check though
They do definitely. On the website it says the only courses excepted are med and one other similar one + I know a few peeps in UNSW comm/law through AAA. Unless if they're changing the system for next year?

If it comes up as a mistake after main round you can just sue BOS/UAC for wasting a year of your life.

Yeah firstly I asked if the AAA is applicable then they replied, "we only recognize the bonus points for elite athletes"
Then I just asked if they're sure then they said "I would recommend that you speak with direct admissions..." which I will.

I think whoever emailed me is wrong.
