    Default Have I missed to boat to study this year?

    I am starting from complete scratch as I haven't studied at all and I didn't get an OP (am i dreaming thinking i can get in to study?) I am from QLD and I have no idea where to start.

    Have I missed out for this year? I really want to start as soon as I can. I only just decided to study and I am kicking myself I didn't decide last year.

    I want to study either midwifery (I want to study in Logan) or paramedic (I'm not sure where I can study for this one).

    I have young (none School age) 3 children and I would like to study either part time or distance Ed as i live an hour from the closest uni.

    I've tried looking on QTAC but have no idea what it all means.

    What is the test you need to do if you haven't got an OP?

    Any help or guidance will be much appreciated.

    You haven't missed the boat, many uni's do midyear entry.
    ACU does paramedicine and mid, not sure if by distance.
    UniSA does midwifery by distance and entry is handled through SATAC.

    Did you finish high school and get a score? If not you may have to do a tertiary bridging course. CDU offers these by distance education.

    That's as much as I know about, hope it helps.

    I was told I passed the entry mark for Vet nursing and letters have just gone out and my mark was 50 and passing was 54!! im so angry coz i was told i would get in, and what makes it even worse is theres no midyear entry for this course. if u can go mid year i'd say giv it a shot. worth asking if they do it.

    You have until the 25th to submit an application and all papers they will request. If you have not studied at all, and have no OP, I strongly advise you do a bridging course this semester. USQ do it by distance and also on their campus at Springfield- just google USQ TPP. It's free, takes 1 semester and will introduce to you studying, what markers look for in essays so you know how to write one that will get the highest marks possible, how to research and will also do a refresher maths course. It's very, very simple and this will give you a nice rank.

    Even with the drop in rank/op, getting in on 2nd round will be tough.


    If you don't want to do a bridging course, you can sit the STAT and do a PCA (5 pages, essay style, answering their questions and showing how you have addressed them- ie/ having not studied in a while, so taking a bridging course to polish up on writing and research skills, resulting in confidence when it comes to assignments and exams etc)

    Hi kb90 - ask the uni/tafe if they have a waitlist for places if others should drop out. If they have a set intake and there are drop outs or non-acceptances within the first couple of weeks they may be willing to take on those that were close - worth a shot.

    Do you have a back-up study plan?

    Good luck!
