    im studying an extended diploma in Travel and Tourism but want to do a combined psychology and criminology course. Last year i achieved PP. however, this year i am confident i can get all distinctions bringing me up to the maximum DMM (equivalent to 112 points) as i am a lot more focused, motivated and have a lot more time and ambition.

    all my universities and courses have requirements of 112 points, do you think the universities will look into the fact i have only achieved PP in my first year and potentially believe that i can not achieve the DMM that i will need?

    It's possible but some Universities take predicted grades very serious. In the worst case scenario you can use clearing or take a gap year.
