SEAS for surgery??

Hey guys,
I had ankle surgery about 4 weeks ago and haven't been able to go back to school/ do school work for about 3 weeks. Is there any SEAS category that this would be able to go into? Also, I believe where I live is a regional/ rural town how many extra points does this and my surgery contribute to my atar.

Cheers

Yep, if I remember correctly category 3 is for disability and/or medical condition. You can read more about it here :) You have to do an impact statement and also have a supporting statement from your treating healthcare practitioner - it's all clearly explained on the website.

Category 1 is for personal location and information, so that will cover you coming from a rural area.

It varies from case to case I imagine. VTAC never publish how many extra points you get so it's impossible to say.

*raises hand slowly* Had back surgery before the start of the year, get special stuff like breaks during SACs/exams. Don't know about specifics though.
VCE
2019: HHD 3/4 (raw 31), Maths Methods 1/2, English 1/2, Texts and Traditions 1/2, History 1/2, Chemistry 1/2
2020: Maths Methods 3/4, English 3/4, Texts and Traditions 3/4, Revolutions (France/Russia) 3/4

Aims
Aiming for ~90+ ATAR, 40+ in Texts (I can hope, can't I?) Maybe even 40 in English if the exam is really friendly.
Also aiming for Bachelor of Nursing, probably at Monash.
