Hey Mister Sinanator, I would like to read your essays you wrote. Can you use up your free time for a complete stranger (me), and rewrite and post what you wrote in the test time?  ;)

I will be grateful!  :)

Honestly, I rushed it and can't exactly remember what I wrote. If I wrote it now it'd be better than what is on my GAT. Besides my English isn't crash hot but if I get time I'll PM you something.



Thanks! :)

Just in regards to the discussion and the issue of the aggregate. There was a lot of random trolling by many users yesterday, so here's the story:

What's true: The GAT is used at Monash for those in the Middle Band (and probably for other unis too, not sure) and having a good GAT does help you in you admission into certain courses that use it alongside you ATAR. No-on really knows what specific effect it has, but it has a beneficial effect if your GAT is fairly strong in the sections they are looking for.

What's false: The specific numbers: 9 or 6.5 or whatever else came up yesterday (I think a few users were involved, myself as well, and most of this was false/trolling). It DOES help Middle Band applicants(and there are technicalities as Russ pointed out above), but these numbers are all rumour. This is not the first time I've heard such numbers being thrown around (I even heard 12 at one stage last year lol, and other numbers in previous years), so if you did believe these to be true, just understand now that these numbers are probably not accurate. So, just know that is does help you if you are a middle band applicant with a good GAT.


Again, I'd like to apologise on behalf of all the tollers of yesterday for any misinformation :(

Ah, well in that case I extend my sincere apologies to everyone. I was truly under the impression that a 50 on the GAT did result in Monash adding aggregate points to your ATAR. :)
Aspiring doctor. Why? For the same four reasons as everybody else. Chicks, money, power and chicks.

yeah i don't think you're supposed to talk about anything apart from the information presented?
Like i didn't even say Mt Everest is the highest mountain in the world cos it wasn't in the information

Well I did last year and I got a 50 so I'm going to presume that it's alright.


The assessor you had is probably different this year?
You don't get any extra marks for anything off the topic.
You might have gotten it for what you did write. If it was based on the extra material, it was a one off, and maybe the marker this year isn't that lenient.
