    I was doing International Studies.

    Sounds snobbish, but the UAI required for it was 15 points more than Arts at my uni so that's why I did it - I got in, and it is a little more 'reputable' on a CV than Arts in the field I want to work in.

    And I can do post grad, but I don't see that happening - if I can avoid ever going back to uni, I will as I've had a blardy horrible time there.

    Yeah it's called ATARI now. I needed 97 for international studies as opposed to 82 for Arts...so yeah...I'm a bit of a snob!

    And yes, I prob will do postgrad but not for a few years yet!

    ah i see. the qld system gives you an OP (stands for overall position) between 1 and 25, with 1 being the best. that gets converted to a number out of 100 once you hit uni though. i got a 6, which i think is 83. my sister got i think a 3. biatch. lol
    but i guess i didn't really try that hard. another area where i'm like my dad- i can usually do well academically without really trying.

    Haha - that's how I ended up doing law and not just arts! Lol.

    I'm so sorry though that the Uni didn't give you a conceded or supp pass. I think that really bites.
