NSW universities to make early offers to IB students

International Baccalaureate students will get early offers from a number of Sydney universities based on their predicted results, up to three weeks ahead of the new December 21 round of offers for HSC students.

More than 2400 students across Australia are sitting their final IB exams. In NSW, where the IB is not offered at government schools, about 547 students at 17 private schools are sitting IB exams instead of the HSC.

Macquarie University will make unconditional offers to IB students on December 7 based on their predicted final results provided by schools, three weeks after their exams end on November 17 and a month before IB results are released on January 5.

The University of Sydney will also make conditional offers to IB students by December 1 based on their predicted grades, but students will still need to get the minimum IB score for their course and meet any other selection criteria such as interviews or portfolios.

The University of Technology Sydney is also considering bringing in conditional offers for IB students in December but will not have the process in place this year, a spokesman for the university said.
