Year 10 subject selection – resources

A successful information evening was held for Year 10 as they start the process of selecting their subjects. Here are some resources that may help finalise those subject choices in the next few weeks before the deadline:


Year 12 early offers

I am often asked about early offer programs. As I have told our senior students, this now makes up the majority of applications as universities and colleges try and open up access and diversify their entry points.

Most of these schemes are now officially open for business or are just on the cusp of opening. The universities our students are most interested in – as discussed with the current Year 12s are –  Macquarie Leaders and Achievers and UTS – Early Offer Portal.

There is also a centralised document that hosts all of the information on all of the schemes. There is an enormous amount of information to wade through. Research, research, research is the key and targeting those institutions of interest. The process can be straightforward utilising Year 11 Grades and/or an application that showcases the student with extra curricular involvement, leadership, adversity or equity.

Upcoming webinars

I often discuss the path of Psychology with students.  Here is the chance to chat to current Psychologists at this talk with ACU:
