Because UAC has several offer rounds in the first half of the year, many Year 12 students ask us if they can receive an offer now.
The short answer is ‘no’: the first UAC offers to Year 12 students will be made to Schools Recommendation Scheme (SRS) applicants on 11 November 2022. Offers made then are not based on HSC results and ATARs. Instead, they are based on other criteria like Year 11 results and the school’s rating of the student.
Before November, offers are made to applicants who are not in Year 12 this year and already have a qualification UAC can assess. They’re often applying to start a course in Semester 2.
Most UAC offers to Year 12 students are made in late December, after the release of ATARs.
If you’re after an early offer, make sure to apply directly to the university of your choice through their early entry program. You can find a full list of early entry programs, including closing and offer dates, in our Early Entry Guide.
