Ok, this is for people who want to get into uni and are applying to UAC soon. How soon? I don't know. I think we get the forms in a few weeks :eek:

Anyway, list the nine courses you are planning to write down :)

I can't really list mine because the majority of them will be "???"
I have no idea how I'm going to fill 9 preferences :(

Uhhh hmmm. I used to be very certain of what I wanted to do. Now I have no clue. I think uhhh...B.Science...uhm...or Med Science...hahaha but I have to be realistic: I don't study very hard, I'm not going to get the UAI for that. And where do I want to go? Anywhere in Sydney that'll take me. Hahaha. Uhhh maybe I should go study...

But does that mean because you are later than others to place that particular course as ur preference, you'll be disadvantaged if there are limited positions available? ie. Perhaps you won't be accepted?

It certainly doesn't matter when you finalise your preferences. I was swapping and changing mine for weeks before the deadline, it makes no difference.

It's like an assignment due at 2pm.. it doesn't matter whether you hand it in a week earlier or at 1:59pm on the due date, it will still be marked equally.

Wow.. bad analogy, my apologies. :D

Just to reiterate what others have said in this thread:

1. Make sure you put down something, ANYTHING, before the due date. I don't care what, pick the first course in the UAC guide if you want.

2. You can change at anytime up until a deadline (I don't know what that is, but it is bound to be in your UAC guide, or on the UAC website).

3. There is no cost involved in changing your preference PROVIDED YOU FOLLOW STEP 1.
