When unis post their lowest in ATARS is that including SEAS ranking or not?
It depends. Does it say lowest atar or lowest selection rank? If it says lowest selection rank it will include seas, if it says lowest atar it likely wonít.

Itís the Monash page and they have atars with and without adjustment factors as a header but they refer to the number as a rank so Iím not sure https://www.monash.edu/study/courses/admissions-transparency/atar-offer-profile-report

They call it a rank because thatís what the atar is. The atar without adjustment factors will be just the atar people had, the atar with adjustment factors will include seas/bonus points.

quick question.
So I want to accept my offer but it is #2 on my preferences and I'd rather do 1. Do I have to fill out all the paperwork which is required to accept my first round offer which seems like confirming im going to the uni, if so can I back out through a letter and more paperwork if I get my first offer in the 2nd round. I'm just really worried of somehow getting locked into my first round course and getting a second round offer, or accidentally letting my offer defer.

Yep you should enrol in the offer you got. If you later get into the course you want you just need to give them a call and they'll tell you how to unenroll. You'll be able to drop it until census date (around march) so there's heaps of time.

hey so i got a mid 97 atar and enrolled in bcomm and eng at monash, but iíve suddenly changed my mind and want to do comm comp sci instead... iím stressing out since thereís probably gonna be way less offers in january but iím over the lowest selection rank (2018) which was 96.95. realistically, what are my chances of making the course in the january round? also, comm eng was my first preference but i have moved it to the bottom of my list.

Chances are alright, as youíre trying for the second round. Usually quite a few switch direction or get a better offer, so thereís a reasonable chance.

Donít forget to accept the offer you got for BComm/ Eng anyway, so that you still have an offer at the end of the day. (If you do this, the worst case scenario is that you can transfer into the course after a semester, assuming good uni grades.)
