Australian student here. I can't find any conversations for Australian students wanting to study in the UK. So here we are. If anyone else is from Australia lets help each other out.

Some ice breaker questions:
1. What state are you from?
2. What UNI do you want to apply to?
3. What course?
4. Any questions or advice?
5. (Edit - forgot to put this in whoops) Grade?

My turn:
1. Queensland
2. Oxford (its the dream)
3. Law (yeah it'll be hard to get in)
4. Anyone know how to fill in the qualifications section on the UCAS form if you haven't got your ATAR yet?
5. 12

I really hope someone joins!

i found my people!!

What state? South Australia!
What uni? Cambridge is the dream, but going to apply to Durham, St. Andrews, UCL, and KCL
What course? History!
Any questions/advice? I went to in-person open days at Oxbridge last year so I have a lot of syllabuses and information about what the accomodation is like (at some colleges, not all!) if anyone wants help! obviously I'm not an authority haha and you'd be much better placed to look at what you can find on here/on official sites but I know a couple of things about the in-person experience
Grade? Year 12 IB babyyyyy

Hey everyone! Just found this website

1. NSW
2. Cambridge Homerton college
3. Land Economy
4. Anyone applying to same course or college?
Also, my school (james ruse) decided to scale down our trial marks so i'm a bit worried about how my grades will look. Does anyone know if UK universities just need your grades to be above a certain cut-off mark or do better grades boost your application a lot?

I actually asked some people about this. And tbh if the predicted ATAR is above or around a 98 then you meet their standard and they just care about all the other aspects of the application like interviews and potentially admissions tests.

But yeah ur marks just kinda get you in the door from what I have heard.
