Hey again Monash,

Are the merit scholarships based on raw ATAR or SEAS calculated ATAR? And if possible do you know what the cut off was for the Engineering Excellence Scholarship last year (or past few years).

Thanks :)

all merit scholarships are based on your academic scores only (without any modification) so I'd guess it's your raw ATAR that counts. Monash doesn't disclose their cutoffs for scholarships too so we wouldn't actually know.
2016-2017: VCE (ATAR: 99.3)
2018: Monash.

Just checking this link here:
https://www.monash.edu/study/fees-scholarships/scholarships/find-a-scholarship/engineering-excellence-4093A
It says that you should have a minimum ATAR of 98 to be considered.
2017: Mathematical Methods
2018: Specialist Mathematics ~ English ~ French ~ Further Mathematics ~ Physics | ATAR: 98.05
2019: B.Eng (Honours)

Thanks! I have read that, just curious if you had info on the lowest ATAR admitted thatís all :)

Hi, I'm also enquiring about merit scholarships. I know anyone with 98+ is eligible but does anyone have a good idea of what kind of ATAR is needed to get one? And when are they offered?
Also, I believe I've applied for 2 different Monash courses, one is more competitive than the other. Will my chances of being offered the scholarship differ depending not the course (ie could I receive it for one course and not the other?), or is it just awarded to the top 40 ATARs between 99.95 and 98?
Thanks.

Not sure about ATAR aside from what has already been said. Merit scholarships are generally competitive. Usually fairly early in the game (close to now), but I just checked and I have my info wrong - see here for correct timeframe.

Edit (after after personís edit):

AFAIK, you just need to have Monash as a preference at time of consideration and top 40 of those = potentially get merit scholarship.

According to the website I linked.
Quote from: Monash
Offers will be made from mid-December and throughout January and February
My understanding is most will happen in mid-December but because preferences change, the scholarship may not be fully confirmed until February.

Hi! The ATAR needed for the bachelor of psychology (honours) is 85. My ATAR is 87, does this mean that I'll definitely get an offer into the course or does it just increase my chances of receiving an offer? Is it possible I don't get an offer despite achieving a higher ATAR than needed?

Thanks! :)

If 85 is the clearly in (last year) it is very likely that you will recieve an offer.

Clearly ins can change year by year so that would be the only obstacle, however I would be suprised if it went over 87. Even then it would still be possible with an atar below the clearly in for 2nd round offers or first tound offers with bonus points or SEAS if you have them.

Hope this helps

Hey guys!

I was just wondering, will the ATAR requirement be higher than 98 this year for Arts/Law at Monash?
I got 98.1 this morning, and I'm freaking out!!!

Will they accept me or will the ATAR requirement go up?
How likely is this to happen?

I'd really appreciate a response!

Thank you so much everyone! :)

Don't worry. Although ATAR clearly-ins change yearly, they often don't move much for something like the BA/Law.
Remember SEAS or subject bonuses might carry you that bit forward in the right direction, so you've still got a very good chance. :)

Its been set at 98 for quite while now so I think it wont go up and a large proportion of students are accepted below the clearly ins anyway for 2 d rounders and seas/bonus points.

(although possible to go up  if there is a very high demand for it this year)
