Hi! I'm currently a first-year student studying a bachelor's degree at another university. I wish to transfer to this course, however, I realized how the course only starts in semester1 2023. The course was open to an application recently, and I have applied to UAC however I do not know whether the uni gives offers during this time. I entered an enquiry a while ago but they have not replied yet. I know some other universities despite allowing application at this time, but only give out offers at the end of the year. I don't know how the University of Sydney processes this, but another university told me that if I complete 1 year of university, they will consider both my ATAR and university grades at a 50% weighting of both. My ATAR from high school (in 2021) was 99.70, and I'm conflicted about what I should do if the university of Sydney also does not give offers earlier in the year for this course. I'm so lost on what I should do right now, as I'm worried that if I complete 1st year, and don't do well I may not get accepted, or if I should quit doing semester 2 at my current uni (and perhaps work for half a year), and I don't get accepted I would be in a very bad position, not being enrolled in any university. I would really appreciate some clarification, about whether offers of the course (for 2023 semester 1) are given out earlier in the year, or/and suggestions on what I should do (whether to continue semester 2 and perhaps get a bad GPA/WAM and decrease my likelihood of being accepted, or quit and start working, and use my ATAR purely for application). Thanks a lot!!
