University of Auckland changes to Entrance Requirements
The University of Auckland has recently announced several key changes to programme entry requirements for school leavers wanting to start university in 2021. The changes are:
- The Table A and Table B entrance requirements were removed for entrance to university for 2021 due to Covid 19. This requirement has now been removed permanently.
- Bachelor of Engineering (Honours): There are changes to the Calculus and Physics external requirements. The new requirement is 11 external credits from Level Three Calculus and 10 external credits from Level Three Physics.
- Bachelor of Urban Planning: The guaranteed entry score has been reduced from 230 points to 180 points.
- If students have received a Fast Track offer, the advice is to accept this offer. It does not commit students to study in 2021. If a Fast Track offer is accepted, then the student needs to meet the requirements for University Entrance and any subject specific requirements and the offer will stand.
If you are unsure about any of the information above, please make an appointment to talk to one of our Careers Advisers next term.
New BOT Student Rep
We are pleased to announce that Year 12 student Sarah Penny has been elected as our 2020/21 Student Representative on the Board of Trustees. Well done to all 10 of our candidates for their professional campaigns. We will have a story on Sarah in the next edition of The Voice.
And well done to our out-going Student Rep, Grace Chen, who has done an outstanding job representing the student voice.
