Hi
I just got my semester 1 results with a GPA of 2.8/4. Is there a chance I will be able to get into UNSW Bachelor of Commerce (2nd year through credit transfer) next year?

Thanks

Chances are low, you probably need a distinction average at least

Depends what 2.8 translates to in WAM, if you got a WAM of like 72 but 2.8 gpa then your chances are decent depending on anyone else applying that semester

how do you convert GPA to WAM ?


lets say I got 3.52, is it possible to get a transfer to Eng/Comm at UYSD?

WAM is just the average of all your marks, so when you have a look at all your marks, just add them up and divide by the number of marks, simple!

3.52 is good, you have a high chance of being accepted if you want to transfer to eng/comm at USYD - not guaranteed but good chance (try UNSW as well when you fill in your preferences for transfer)

Yes, you have a chance with a credit average GPA (2.5+/4.0).

I have a friend who got into UNSW combined law (external transfer from UTS combined law) with a credit average GPA.

Furthermore, it's important to note that - whilst there is credit transfer, you won't receive credit for all your subjects.

Yes.

3.52 (if you can maintain it after Semester 2) is most likely enough for a transfer to basically anything at USYD (maybe even combined Law).

To this day I still don't know what IBP taught me apart from the stages of a contract and laws around it.

Hi RivalryofTroll
My WAM I calculated was 76 with GPA of 2.8. So I do have a slight chance but will depend on the intake as well as my overall results. I will try my best next semester aiming for distinction average!!!!


Such a shame I got a D for Economics and HD for IBP. Sad they won't be counted because I only passed Accounting A and got credit for MPO!!! :(

This was so long ago but I was wondering whether you ever made the successful transfer?

Thanks! Always have hope- I really wasn't an amazing student but I worked hard nonetheless.

Come to think of it I have a few friends who went from UTS B Business to UNSW B Comm (or B Business now)... seems to be a common path.

Economics at UTS works a bit differently to how it does at UNSW, from my understanding UNSW has a microeconomics/macroeconomics split while UTS has Economics For Business 1 (core) and Economics For Business 2 (eco major or elective) which both cover a bit of micro and macro. That makes transferring kind of awkward as neither subject would map directly to a single UNSW subject.

I think it's the same for accounting which mixes financial and managerial accounting across two subjects rather than splitting them (when I did these subjects I think Sydney Uni at least split them), but (unlike economics) every student would have done both accounting subjects in their first year which would simplify transferring to another uni that had split the content differently.

As for IBP, IBP is a bit of an oddball subject. It covers a bit of business law, a bit of general business stuff from a lot of other subjects, group work and uni prep stuff (for example referencing and report writing) etc. It probably doesn't have a direct equivalent at UNSW, there might be a subject with similar intentions however.

As for general advice, to be brutally honest, transferring to a more prestigious uni isn't going to be a magic bullet to get a good job or set yourself up for future success. There will be students in your UTS cohort who are on 4.0 GPAs, people who are running/involved in student societies, people that are doing traineeships or working on startups etc. There might even be people ticking all of those boxes, and there will be amazing people like that at UNSW and Sydney Uni too.

Try to be one of those people rather than someone who is worried if their maginal GPA will let them transfer to UNSW. If you're a high achiever (effort helps here, not just natural intelligence), getting that transfer will be easy. If you can't transfer, then at least you'll have good extracurriculars or experience.
