If you’re not doing ATAR and you would like another way to enter university, then Alhamdulillah our school has given Year 12s doing the best option -UniReady!
I chose UniReady as it was the best option for me and the workload I could take. This will allow me to pursue in university what
I’m most passionate about i.e., Major in Law and my Minor in Business. By doing UniReady you can also apply to university early which can help you tremendously especially in competitive degrees that may be hard to get into. The course content is difficult to understand at first because the standard is university standard, but with the help of the amazing teachers who teach this course and their advice, knowledge and support allow us students to grasp the content easily. It is a big adjustment at first but once you get the hang of it, it becomes easier. You will need to obtain good time management skills as it takes a while to complete assignments and study for exams alongside schoolwork. I always had a monthly calendar/planner on my door and look at it every day I come home from school to see what assignments I need to start on and when they are due (I also do this for my school workload) this ensures that I know what I need to get done, set my priorities and accomplished my goals! Some advice I’d like to give is that although it can be difficult at times completing Uniready is rewarding and a big step into the future, just know your teachers are there to help you along the way, they want you to succeed and for you to do well!
