Want to go to UNSW??????? VERY IMPORTANT
Early Entry schemes: Posted 28-8-17 Deadline - No Deadline
The UNSW Gateway scheme recognises that schools have different levels of educational advantage and therefore some students experience more disadvantage than others. This means that a student’s ATAR may not accurately reflect their ability to achieve at university. The UNSW Gateway Scheme applies an evidence-based approach which makes the pathway to a degree at UNSW more equitable for students from low-socio economic backgrounds and regional areas. The UNSW Gateway Scheme automatically applies an adjusted selection rank to students who have attended Gateway eligible schools in NSW. If your ATAR falls within ten points of the Guaranteed Entry rank for UNSW degrees where the cut off is 90 or below, and you order your preferences in a way that allows you to receive an offer, Gateway will automatically adjust your selection rank.
