EDUCATIONAL ACCESS SCHEMES (EAS).
If you consider that you have been disadvantaged and that your results will be lower than they should have been because of this disadvantage you may be able to get some special consideration from the universities. Types of disadvantage considered are: disrupted schooling; financial hardship; adverse home environment (particularly involving abuse) and excessive family responsibilities; English language difficulty; personal illness/disability; adverse school environment. To apply check with your Tertiary Admissions Centre or ask your careers adviser. Evidence for the application may take some time to collect, so start the process as soon as possible.
Talk to the university and explain your situation. They will tell you your options. These may include taking subjects from the degree that you want to do without being enroled in the degree; starting a different degree and transfering, or re-applying, later; doing some other course, such as a uni preparation course, a TAFE course, or a course at a private college to then get in later; taking Year 12 again; or rethinking your career options.
There is always a Plan B! Your ATAR is not the end of the world, and many very successful people in today's society have had poor HSC results.
Consider taking Bridging Courses if you feel that they will help you to succeed in your university studies. These are courses that may be available from universities in Jan/Feb/Mar before you start your degree.
