Re: [CHAT]: Transitioning to higher education

Hahaha @loves netball - reminds me of when I was taking neuroanatomy. It's really cool stuff to learn though! I never knew how much I didn't know about my body until I started taking anatomy and physiology courses. Now I've learned precisely when to take my coffee to get the most out of it. Which probably sounds unimpressive, but it's a real lifesaver when it come so finals, believe me.

Speaking of time, I have to get going or else I'm actually going to get stranded at uni. Looking forward to reading up on the conversation later tonight guys!

Just wanted to say hey. Being in yr11 it's kinda hard to answer some of these questions but I'll probably follow along.

Re: [CHAT]: Transitioning to higher education

wait.. so if you dont go to your classes at uni you don't fail based on attendance? what???
We fail units if we dont show up to 80% of them.. which sucks if its a short unit of like 5 classes Smiley Sad

@letitgo as someone who is interested in doing honours in psychology - if you don't mind me asking, did you do anything differently in your application the second time around that you think contributed to your success?

Re: [CHAT]: Transitioning to higher education

 

What can you do if you don't get in to the course you wanted to get into?

I think the first thing to do is to not panic. I know plenty of people who did not get into the course they orginally wanted or even into university. What school's sometimes don't stress is that there are many more options if you don't get accepted into your course/uni. I know a few people who started a bridging course into uni and by the time they finished that some of them wanted to study something completely different anyway and others realised that uni was not actually for them and went off to do full time work. I know others started a course because they didn't initially get into what they wanted, but then after doing well in their "second option" they were able to transfer and study what they really wanted. There is always a way to get around things, and in my experience, everything always works out the way it should, and who know you might end up loving your second choice more Smiley Happy
