TISC | 17 January 2013
WA’s Tertiary Institutions Service Centre (TISC) reports that WA universities received 19,065 applications in 2012/13, down from 19,258 last year (-1%) and that 16,189 offers were made in this year’s Main Round, down from 16,524 (-2%). The decline in offers due to the decrease in application numbers and to a change in policy by one university to require direct application by those who deferred their 2012 offer.
Applications from 2012 WACE students showed a modest increase (1%), while other applications decreased 4%. Compared with last year, the total number of offers made has decreased by 2%, Eight-five per cent of applicants were successful. Numbers of offers made to 2012 WACE applicants were similar to last year, with 90% being successful (90.5% last year).
