I wondering whether they drop the lowest score from year-to-year.
I really wanted to get into the Bachelor of Criminology and Psychology, but just missed out on getting a 71.65 (their lowest score).
If I put RMIT as my 1st preference, during the change preference period, do you think I could still get into the course?
Thanks!

Unfortunately, clearly-ins don't change much over the years in general. 
Fortunately, though, many people get in via SEAS and subject bonuses, so they're well under the clearly-in. That 71.65 is probably going to change, so you just never know. Keep it as first preference and seize your chances. A relatively good chance is better than zero chance at all. :)

Hi ATAR Notes community!

I was looking at RMIT for one of my university preferences as I would really love to study in Melbourne, and I came across the page of VCE Units 3 and 4 at RMIT. So, I was just wondering what the purpose of this program would be and if I would be eligible for it? Especially since that, I'm worried that I won't get a high enough ATAR. What are the pros and cons of this program and are there any benefits?

Thank you so much and kind regards,

Darcy Dillon.

Hi Darcy,
This program enables you to complete Units 3 and 4 subjects of VCE in a university environment. So, it's the Victorian equivalent of doing QCE at uni.
According to the admissions requirements I don't think you would be eligible:
Quote from: RMIT
Admissions
You must:

not have undertaken full-time secondary schooling for the full year preceding the first year of enrolment as an adult

The pros and cons of this program depend on what you want to get of it. A major benefit of this program are that you can complete VCE in a university ("adult") environment which might work for some. A drawback is that you could be doing a uni course instead of completing VCE and repeating a secondary school qualification / taking a gap year / working during that year.
If your ATAR is lower than the entry requirement for your desired course, there are many other ways to get into it. Some include:
- completing a diploma of that course that allows you to transfer into the second year of the Bachelor degree version (someone at my school got a 48 ATAR and did an engineering diploma at RMIT and transferred to a Bachelor of Engineering).
- internal transfer - choose a course with a lower entry requirement at RMIT and transfer after a semester / year (you can contact the uni for more info about this, maybe better to do so if you end up in this situation)
- external transfer - choose a degree that is similar to your desired course but at another uni and then transfer after a semester or a year.
- do a graduate course at RMIT if available - depends on how much you want to study at the uni / what you want to study. For example, if you want to become a teacher, you can do an undergraduate degree at another uni and do a Master of Teaching at RMIT if you wanted to teach in VIC. However, if you're doing a course that leads to a specific career like journalism or pharmacy, it's probably a better idea to do an undergraduate degree at RMIT to save time and money.

If your ATAR just misses the entry requirement for your desired course, there is a chance that you can still receive an offer if there are places left in the course. It depends on the popularity of the course.

In the meantime, keep your head held high and believe in yourself! I believe in you and you should too 8)

Wishing you all the best with QCE, Darcy!

Hope this helps :)
