The final list of Year 12 Change of Preference events has been uploaded to the Careers Page of the Portal and it has also been emailed to the students. Please select the following link and also families are reminded to check that students have a tax file number prior to enrolment in tertiary courses – https://portal.tintern.vic.edu.au/homepage/19818/. The Year 12 students have all our best wishes for their examinations as they work through this busy period.
For Years 10, 11 and 12 students in 2019, there is the opportunity to change their subject selections from Friday 2 November once they have received their subject allocations. Students may email Mrs Ruckert at firstname.lastname@example.org to organise an appointment and they can access the Senior College reception area for these discussions in the Careers room during the Year 12 examinations.
UCAT Preparation Courses
The school has been notified that there have been some misleading advertising claiming to help prepare students for the new UCAT (former UMAT). The UCAT will be used in the application process to some undergraduate medical degrees including Monash University. Claims including extensive experience tutoring UCAT (it is new) and referring to a paper-based test (it will be electronic) raise concerns and families need to be careful if selecting additional support to prepare for the test.
