It’s now 2011 and university offers will be released soon! These offers can determine your future so it’s important you are prepared for this life changing piece of information. Now that you have all gotten your HSC results and your ATARs you need to make sure that you make the most of your preference list and get an offer you want. Of course you choose courses which will help you get to the career that you want to have in the future but that’s not all to getting into a course you love. Here is a small guide to help you with your choices.
Choosing a career path
This is kind of important. It will guide you through this next stage of your life and help you choose the right course. Choosing a career isn’t always easy and if you aren’t sure you’ve chosen the right path or still unsure here are some things to keep in mind
Choosing a course
You need to choose the course that will get you to the place you want to get. In some cases it’s fairly straight forward but sometimes there are lots of similar courses available in different universities.
Building your preference list
It’s important not to think oh I already know what course I want, I will get into it. The cut offs are only from the year before and are usually subject to change when it comes to your year as for universities it’s the number of spots free, not your ATAR specifically. Anyway it’s better to be safe then sorry. But how do you choose and fill your list?
Tips for your preference list
Last but not least, DON’T STRESS OUT. It’s not the end of the world. This isn’t the only way to get to where you want to, though most direct, if you keep a level head and think properly about your options then you will get there in the end.
So good luck! Hope this last minute information helps you out. Maybe I will be seeing you at uni.
