Is a 90+ still possible

So basically I'm gunning for computer science at UNSW and for that, I need a 93 ATAR. Although my trials weren't exactly phenomenal. My school ranks 60ish i think and this is what i got for trials

SDD Mark: 73/100 Rank: 3/17
Maths Advanced Mark:76/100 Rank 15/100
English Std Mark: 56/80 Rank: 8/80
Biology Mark: 58/100 Rank: 19/90
Chemistry Mark: 50/95 Rank: 18/52

Thanks in advance!!

You'll need to give us your total mark, not just trials, and approx how many band 6's your school get's for those subjects. Otherwise our guess will be highly inaccurate.

Comp Sci at UNSW is a great choice. The lecturers are great imo, especially if you get Marc Chee in your first year, that guy is a legend.

Right now the estimate I would give for your atar is low to mid 80's, around an 84. If you work hard for your externals and pull up your mark you might just be able to crack 90, although it will be very difficult. You'll also get a bonus point for getting a band 6 in Math's Adv.

Getting an offer in the first round is going to be difficult, but keep it up there and you might get one in second round.

Good luck.
