    I got an op3 ~ 96 atar, wanted to do med, didn't phase me though I gave year 12 my best shot and was happy. when I went to Uni is when I realized the wealth of opportunities available to me. Uni is where an academic career really starts. so then I did pharmacy not really because I wanted to be a pharmacist but coz I wanted to do med and thought it would be a good basis for post grad med entry. So I did pharmacy whilst sitting the gamsat (med entry exam) sat it three times during my degree. Got the score I needed and now I'm doing med finally after completing pharmacy last year.

    My point it, there is always a way to get into what you want to do. Just be proactive in trying to achieve what you want. Uni provides better opportunities than school in trying to do what you want. yea it may take a year or two extra compared if you had gotten in straight away from school. But if your are going to work as something for 40-50 years…1-2 years won't make a difference in the greater scheme of things. just keep chasing what you are passionate about and never settle for anything less thinking you don't have the ability, I will 100% garuntee that will lead to a life of regret… There is nothing you can't do if you put your mind, time, effort into it. You will need to be persistent you will need to be patient and you will need to work your butt off….but the best part it, you will get where you wanted to be…and do what you wanted to do.

    If your dreams don't scare you, they are not worth chasing.

    My sisters got 97.55 and 99.65……. I am currently in year 12 and feeling so pressured  to get an above average atar from everyone, my parents, teachers, friends, family you name it. However I am not my sisters and I would be absolutely stoked with an 80 atar, how do I lower peoples expectations for my results?

    One reason that I love the education system in Australia is that there are always other ways! Even if you don't get the ATAR score you need, there are so many other ways to get into the uni and course you want. It is not the end of the world. Good Luck on your future

    This actually made me cry haha, I'll receive my ATAR next year and I hope it'll all be okay. I hope to work so hard in the new year and get a 80+, no matter what, as long as I work hard, in the end I'll be happy with what ever I achieve.
    Well done to everyone this year!

    I didn't get the greatest results when I graduated High School but I worked my ass off, gone to tafe for three years and now I'm at UNSW doing the course I wanted. So don't be so down on yourself and don't let negative criticism get to you. Put in the hard work and you will feel more fulfilled in the end.  Good luck.

    dont worry guys if you didnt get the atar you wanted theres plenty of other ways to get into uni. you can work / pay your way into uni and if all else fails just dont go. focus entirely on getting an entry level job in your field of choice then just work your way up.

    I got a pretty average UAI when I did my HSC (around high 60s). But never went to Uni and 8 years into my IT career and never regretted my path. Uni isn't the beginning or an end, its only one of many options.

    I finished with an ATAR score of 61, I felt worthless and cried for a while. In the end I went to Monash University and finished with an Honours Degree in Health Science. I work as a research assistant now and enjoy it very much. After this year I will apply for doctoral position and continue research. 

    I must re-iterate, it is important to work hard. I'm not very bright and so I hard to put in the hard work. I remember thinking in high school, "I can do well, I just haven't been trying". Don't let this become a lifelong habit. Apply yourself as best as you can.

    I obtained a 94 back in the day, and am currently doing a Masters of Engineering (by research) at RMIT University. Do I care about the number I got back then? Nope. Not for a long time. It got me into my course of choice, but the most fundamental thing that I've struggled with hasn't been marks. It's been direction. It's been motivation. Can I bear to chase a distant career at the expense of leaving family and friends behind? The answer to that may seem simple to the fortunate ones, but to me it's a question of what I value, and what I'm willing to sacrifice. So much more than a number will influence your direction, no matter what number you wound up with.
