Year 12 Early Entry Schemes

Year 12 Early Entry Schemes

We understand that the disruption to your studies due to COVID-19 may have caused you, your parents or your carers considerable anxiety about the HSC and university entry for 2021.

At Macquarie University, we’ve long recognised that you’re more than just your ATAR. Rather, we recognise that you’re an individual with different strengths, interests and personal circumstances. So, we offer a range of entry schemes that take into consideration a variety of criteria.

For more than five years, we’ve offered a range of early entry schemes that allow us to make you an offer based on your Year 11 results. If you meet the entry criteria, you’re offered a place at Macquarie before your Year 12 results are released.

This year is no exception.

If you apply to Macquarie and you meet the entry criteria for our early entry schemes, you’ll be offered a place to commence your study in 2021.

Macquarie’s two early entry schemes for Year 12 students are:

Both schemes assess your Year 11 results (along with other criteria) – but it’s a requirement of both schemes that you complete your Year 12 schooling successfully.

These schemes are supported by a range of other entry pathways to Macquarie University. These include:

  • Academic Entry Program
  • Guaranteed Entry
  • Diploma, Foundation and Intensive Programs
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Pathway
  • and a range of adjustment factors.
