Woohoo! After studying last year in a pre-tertiary course, i'm entering uni as mature age to become an engineer! Being that there seems to be a few on here, if you can suggest some initial reading I can do, that would be great! Other part to this story is I had to twist their arm to offer me a position though. I didn't apply myself in Yr12 back in 97 and as a result, my marks could have been a lot better. So I did the pre-tertiary course which gives you a new equivelant UAI, (TER in my day) and my marks were great! The dumb thing is though, they still used my old score as the basis!! I was like, what the?? That was over a decade ago, and look how i'm doing now! Seems a bit stupid given they're trying to encourage mature entry, especially in an industry with skills shortage.
