Not Meeting Scaled English Requirements?
« on: October 22, 2018, 01:14:20 am »

What should I do if I don't get a scaled mark of at least 50 in English ATAR?

I'm currently a year 12 student awaiting the final WACE exams and I pretty much slacked off in the past 3 terms (I do regret it).
Right now, my school marks for it is in the danger zone.

Knowing that English exams are pretty hard (generally) and that English ATAR gets scaled down, this is my last chance.
In case I don't meet the minimum requirements for uni entry, what should I do? Is it one of those things that are negotiable with universities?


Please help me, I'm desperate.

Please don't spam the forums with the same post.

I can't help with this question as I am not familiar with WACE but hopefully someone can chime in soon :)

I'm pretty sure ECU accepts people who got a %50 in the school mark for english (Not including scaling or wace exam mark). Also other univities have english bridging courses if you dont meet the english requirements. Also you can do the STAT test and if u do well in that u can meet the universities english requirements.

Again Iím sorry. I am not familiar at all with WACE.

But whether you get the required score or not there are always pathways to get into the course you want. It may mean it will take an extra year and you need to go into a diploma first but you are able to get into any course you like as long as you are willing to let it take a little longer.

I know in VCE the study score requirements for English are requirements and therefore super strict but I canít say whether or not it is the same in WACE.
