A number of Australian Universities offer Early Entrance Programs which would allow students to have a guaranteed place in their chosen degree before they’ve sat their examinations. A number of PVIS Students were accepted into their chosen courses before finishing Year 12 last year.
These vary from University to University, so you will need to do some research on where you would like to go and what program you wish to study and see what options you have for early entrance.
