Not necessarily.

Depending on your circumstances and the courses youíre interested in doing, SEAS, subject bonuses and other adjustments can be added to the ATAR you receive, which may make your adjusted selection rank a bit higher and may get you over the line. The amount of adjustments will vary from course to course, institute to institute and person to person, so thereís no single answer as to how much youíll receive in adjustments (and generally youíll never know what your adjusted selection rank was).

Still donít quite make it with your adjustments? Thatís ok! Courses are offered on a system where the institutes try to fill up as many  spots as they have available and go via peopleís adjusted ranks, as well as demand (the number of people who put a course as a preference). If your desired course doesnít have that much demand and you donít quite make it after adjustments, thereís still a (slim) chance youíll be able to still get a spot. (Also, note that the selection rank to enter a course often lowers with each offer round until as many spots are filled as possible, but chances decrease drastically with each round and not all courses participate in all rounds.)

However, Iíd recommend that you work harder now and not rely on this to get you into your desired course, as the chances of getting in via this method can often be very risky.
