I think with utas, you don't need 50 in each of your sections, but at least a 50 overall is required

But it's not a guarantee right? So...should I just ask for a remark, risk losing the very chance I have left...? fk this, you know what, umat can just eat itself with its shallowness(n)Oh right, just noting that the 50-50-50 only applies to UQ.
That table shows the minimum required to get an interview, which you have probably achieved. It is how you perform at the interview.
Agree. I have known a few people who have contacted ACER regarding remarking, although none had the results altered in their favour. My own cynicism suggests it's a money making exercise above anything else, although if you find yourself obsessing about it, then there's not much to lose above the remarking fee.It's not uncommon for people to do what you have just done and do really well in S1 and 3 then screw up S2. the responses are too ambiguous and you must have just picked the wrong choice a few too many times. Took me a few times to get a decent score in S2.
Personally i'd leave it and keep the money i would have to pay, but if it really bugs you that much and you're gonna wonder 'what if' forever, then just do it. I doubt your marks will drop.
I got my re-marking "results" on the 13th of November last year.. However, there was no deviation in marks. I'm sure that upon contacting the uni and informing them of your updated results they could organise a January interview.Does anyone know how long ACER usually take to remark the UMAT? I know they said it won't be released in time for change of preferences, does that mean that first round interviews in Nov-Dec are also ruled out if you didn't make the cutoff when UMAT was originally released? E.g. if you were applying for UNSW and the cut off was 93, you got 89 and upon remarking your score went up to say 97, would you only be offered an interview (assuming ATAR high enough) in the final round in Jan?
^^^ That is quite alright assuming you have a spare $85 lying around.Get a remark... at worst you are going to be out $85... which is better than waiting until offers are out and wondering if you should have gotten a remark...
I would give it a go. Most ppl improved heaps this year after tonnes of training, it's hard to imagine that none of ur training paid off. besides, after paying like $500 on a prep course and $200 on umat, what's another $85.^^^ That is quite alright assuming you have a spare $85 lying around.
If you highly doubt the mark you recieved was correct due to whatever reason and have some spare cash maybe it is worth a remark just to be on the safe side and get rid of any feelings of regret. Otherwise I wouldnt really bother. UMAT is unpredictable and its not something at which you are guaranteed to improve so yeah.
lol , but I reckon it's worth a shot though only if u have reason to believe there could be a mistake. In my case, half my section 1 answers were displaced up so I had to scribble furiously to erase and correct them. There could easily have been smudges on my test paper. Even though I'm gradually coming to terms with failure, I'm gonna give remarking a go- with my score, I don't think it could get any worse. :mellow:Question: Is a remark worth it?
Answer: "no, its like asking an ex boyfriend to reject you again"- Season
