Big wait over for most uni hopefuls tonight

GOOD things come to those who wait.

Or at least that’s what most HSC students hope as they anxiously await tonight’s release of their university offers.

Some have already had the luxury of taking a deep breath with their future prospects already mapped out.

Two former Scots School Albury students received early entry to their chosen courses and won’t have to log on to their computers from 9pm.

James McLindin was offered early entry into two courses at Wollongong University.

“It really takes the pressure off and there’s usually a lot riding on exams and results because that’s what gets you into uni,” he said.

“I’ll definitely be feeling pretty relaxed while everyone is waiting to see what they have been accepted into.”

Mr McLindin said he could understand how fellow students would be feeling as he would be a “little worried” himself if he had not received an early offer.

Alexandra Sutherland was also lucky enough to gain two early offers, one at Charles Sturt University and the other at the University of New England.

She applied through the Principal’s Report Entry Program which required her to write an essay and provide a recommendation from the principal.

She said she would also be nervous if she was awaiting main round offers.

Ms Sutherland said it was not only a relief to no longer be in suspense — it was also an advantage.

“I found out I was accepted on December 5, so I’ve had a lot of time to get organised,” she said.

“But now I know where I’m going and where I’m living and I’ve had all this extra time.”

Both students were happy with what they had already received.

Offers for Victorian students from the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre will be released tomorrow at 2pm.
