FLINDERS UNIVERSITY

The Flinders Year 11 Grade Admission Pathway application deadline is 30 September for both SATAC Application and Flinders application on the Flinders Website.

A reminder that Flinders base their considerations on the best five Year 11 subject grades, and students just need to satisfy SACE* and any prerequisite and application requirements to take up a Conditional Offer.

Another difference with the University of Adelaide scheme is that the grades can go to a minimum of three B grades and C grades for some courses. Your ‘eligible’ Flinders University preference needs to be your first preference by 30 September 5:00 pm. It can be changed in preference position after that.

*Note: A minimum ATAR of 70 is required for all Education/Teaching courses even under the Year 11 Grade Scheme.
