20,000 students expected to change preferences

Now that about 65,000 students across NSW have their results, it’s time for the university waiting game (for many).

The Universities Admissions Centre is expecting 20,000 students to change their course preferences after ATARs were released at 9am yesterday.

The centre advises students to look up last year’s selection rank for the course they wish to get into to see how that compares against the ATAR they have been given.

“Remember that selection ranks include adjustment factors,” the centre said in a statement.

“The selection rank is not necessarily the ATAR you need to get an offer, so don’t be put off by a course that had a selection rank last year that is higher than your ATAR.”

Students have until 11.59pm tonight to change their preference if they want to receive an offer in the December round 2 of university offers.

So, if you are considering swapping your preferences around, get to it!

How flood-affected schools triumphed in the HSC

One of the standout successes of the 2022 HSC is Mullumbimby High in the flood-ravaged northeast corner of the NSW, after it jumped 391 spots to break into the top 150 schools in the state.

Students at other public and Catholic schools in the region also managed to overcome the trauma of the widespread flooding disaster and being rendered homeless to jump more than 50 places in this year’s HSC rankings, including Xavier Catholic College Ballina, which came 61st in the state.

For students at Mullumbimby High, the notion of coming 146th would have almost been unimaginable when students began the year, after water ripped through school buildings, destroying the library’s books, the staffroom, the sports shed and the drama room.

The school was closed for six weeks as teachers worked with other services to clean up the school.

The proportion of students who got a band 6 in a subject went from 1 to 11 per cent since last year.

Good morning

Good morning, my name is Billie Eder and I will be taking you through day two of our HSC live coverage.

Yesterday was a fantastic day as students across the state received their subject results and ATARs.

For some it was a relief to open their computers and see that they got the ATAR they needed for their degree next year, but it was also a tough day for those who didn’t get the marks they were hoping for.

The class of 2022 showed resilience in a year that was littered with floods and the ongoing challenges of COVID-19, so to all those students out there who finished yesterday, congratulations.

Today, we look forward to 2023 and what the next steps will be. So, please feel free to reach out and let us know what you intend to do next year. Whether it’s a trip around the world, starting a trade, going into work or starting a degree, we want to hear from you.
