    Would an ATAR of 95-96 be too low? Also, would my GPA of 7.0 help me get a place?

    Hey Rafa, sorry I forgot through my HSC studies... it felt very formal and not conversational, the interviewers didn't look enthusiastic and quite bored tbh. it went for 40min, and they were always asking me 'is that all?' after my responses. If you want to know anything more, pls ask! if you could make it more specific that would be much appreciated :)

    95-96 is on the lower spectrum, yes. And no, a GPA of 7 does not guarantee a place, as it only counts for a 1/3 of your admission.

    Oh haha thanks for your input. JCU will use my GPA instead of my ATAR anyway. I didn't apply this year, but will do next year.

    Hi
    I'm a non standard 1st yr uni student and I'm not from any rural areas. My GPA is going to be around 6.3 and my atar was 95. I didn't put in any references in my application. Do I have a chance of getting an interview?

    I'm not sure how much references and the written application are worth but I have a GPA of 6 (atar 96.1 in 2015) and received an offer to interview at JCU. I did spend a lot of time making sure my written application and references were of a high quality

    Just out of curiosity in case I have to apply next year, who did you get your references from? I completely ignored the importance of references :(

    I got one from my current employer, one from a close family friend who is also a professor at Melbourne University and one from the careers counsellor/ ski team manager from my school.

    Rafa I had a predicted 99.40 (OP1 equivalent) and had JCU 5th preference and I got the interview offer (as did many other people who did not have JCU as first preference).

    Just thought i’d throw it out there- i’m non rural and received a jcu offer without any references and jcu as my 3rd qtac preference (i didn’t see my paa, but estimated atar was 98.75 so probably op1/2)

    To clarify, it would be OP2 since OP1 refer to an ATAR of 99.00 or above :D
