University Entry Requirements 2014 Year 10 Booklet
It’s time to think about ordering the University Entry Requirements 2014 Year 10 Booklet. The booklet is a valuable tool for Year 10 students choosing their subjects for years 11 and 12. It shows all the prerequisites, assumed knowledge and recommended studies for university courses starting in 2014. Each Year 12 school in NSW and the ACT will receive four complimentary copies of the booklet in mid-May. Extra copies can be ordered online from the end of April.
UAC has changed its re-sitting policy for the Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT) Multiple Choice this year. From Friday 15 April you’ll be able to sit the STAT Multiple Choice test once every STAT testing year (15 April 2011 to 14 April 2012). Previously, you could sit the STAT Multiple Choice once every six months. If you sat the STAT Multiple Choice in 2010 or January 2011, you can register to sit the 2011 mid-year STAT to be held in May/June 2011. Registrations will open in early April 2011. If you sit the STAT Multiple Choice in May or June 2011, you cannot register to sit the test again until the next test available after 14 April 2012. Further information about the changes can be found at www.uac.edu.au/stat/
