Less than 25 study score for Methods

Hi! If I get less than 25 in Methods, is there any way I can still get into or move into a course which has that score as a prereq?

Thank you!

Hi,
I personally don't know, but you can try contacting the uni's for the most accurate info or even VTAC: +613 9926 1020 (Available 9:30am-5pm Melbourne time, Monday to Friday)

After you get your results if you don't get the required pre-reqs you can also contact the Post Results and ATAT service (PRAS):

9am 5pm Monday 20 December

(03) 9637 3877 (metropolitan callers)
1800 653 080 (free call)
You can email PRAS ([email protected]) between 16 December and 20 December and responses will be provided during the opening hours.

Snow Leopard has already given a great response, but I thought Id add in my two cents.

Normally (especially pre-COVID), institutes used to have a relatively hard rule on the 25+raw SS or you wouldnt get in, unless you had extreme circumstances like a tonne of SEAS backing you up and you were very close e.g. got a 24 raw. These days, Im not so sure, so youll need to do your research.

The other ways you can get in include:
- get into a similar course without the prereq and transfer into the desired course (some places will ask you to take an equivalent unit, so please check with interested institutes) - preferably transfer courses within the same uni, as internal transfers generally fair better than external transfers.
- take a Methods bridging course (where available) and subsequently get into the desired course after passing.
- take the desired course at a postgrad level instead and study an undergrad that doesnt have the prereq and will fulfil the entry requirements for the postgrad course.
