Adjustment factors

UNSW Law only accepts adjustment factors for entry to Undergraduate Law that are awarded as part of the AAA Scholarship.  

Academic Achievement Awards (AAA)

The Academic Achievement Award (AAA) comprises:

  • Certificate of recognition
  • Three points (included in the maximum total points) for entry into an undergraduate degree program at UNSW, except for Medicine (428000 BMed MD) and Co-op programs
  • A single payment of $4,000 following confirmation of full-time enrolment at UNSW

AAA's are automatically offered by UNSW based on Australian Year 12 results for students applying for admission via UAC. UNSW must be at least one of the applicant's UAC preferences, as at ATAR release date, in order to be considered.

AAA offers will be made by UNSW to students that achieve the highest ATAR (not including additional points) at eligible NSW and ACT high schools. Multiple students from the same high school may be made an offer.

These Awards are provided to encourage academically gifted local Higher School Certificate (HSC) or equivalent students from NSW and ACT high schools to undertake undergraduate study at UNSW.

How to Apply

You do not need to submit an application to be considered for this award. However applicants will need to submit a UAC Undergraduate Admission application.

Eligible candidates will be identified through their UAC application.
