Let’s Chat – SRS Early Offers
Wednesday 7 September 2022, 6:00 pm
While the ATAR is still the main selection tool used by most unis, there are other ways for you to show that you’re ready to succeed at uni. Many institutions have one or more early offer schemes for Year 12 students. Through these schemes, institutions assess you using criteria other than (or in addition to) your ATAR.
We’ll give you an overview of the Schools Recommendation Scheme (SRS) and discuss:
  • how to apply
  • whether you’re guaranteed early entry if you apply
  • other universities’ direct early entry schemes
  • how many early entry schemes you can apply for.
