Go to your school and ask for a repeat or you can repeat in another high school. This option gives you the best chance to do the course you really want.

Isnt there a way to increase ur UAI (i got 51.45 cos the UAC counted only 9 subjects) if you do a TAFE course? Cos i heard that somewhere..i want to do B Arts for acting or do a course that involves scriptwriting...but for now im going to do my hospitality certificate III (lasts a year)...can that be added to the UAI i already have, for next year's UAC?

That UAI could get you B Arts at La Trobe University, and if by any chance you applied through VTAC, would get you into a B Arts at Deakin too. Not sure about the Hospitality certificate.

u guys, if u really wanna go to uni, and have a uai of between 50-60 u can still make it to la trobe, catholic unis somewhere (i think) and uni's at other states maybe, even uws, another option is colleges that r associated with uni's, u still might get an offer tonight, if you guys have uni courses listed in ur applications, that are within the 50-60 range, remember uni's want money from kiddies like us, so they might accept people, if they don't have enough people in a course, where your marks are a few marks off. and, if it's not ur desired course, there is always the transfer option there.

True that.

Deakin University Warrnambool Campus is in Victoria, offers B Arts for around 48-49, but you would've needed to have applied through Victoria's UAC equivalent VTAC to have gained admission.

Good luck with it all :)

Congrats :)

Deferring is a good option if you wanna raise some cash. Also, I suggest if you're gonna work for a year, that you seriously look at applying for Youth Allowance. You have to earn about $17,121 in 18 months, but once you do that, you're guaranteed a Government funded allowance throughout Uni.

there is some hope for you.. sit stat.. 'work' for a year.. and maybe study.. i just got accepted into a 85uai course and i havent finished my hsc..

on my application i didnt get any scores that put me over 70%, but i got into a coure of 85uai..
i worked 1 year at american express.. though i didnt have to prove it..(NUDGE NUDGE)
i sat a test called STAT and didnt do very well..
and got accepted into arts..
then i did a year of arts and then tried to get into b business and commerce, even though i got like 5passes 2 credits and 1 absentfail so gpa was 3.75 over year..

and i got in.. there is hope, just be persistant! remember i never finished school and got in! with only stat when i applied for arts, so u can also get in without wasting a whole year! just apply at june/july (mid year) GOOD LUCK!
