Special consideration acknowledges unavoidable factors that disrupt your studies, like illness, financial hardship, natural disasters and remote living. With a better understanding of the difficulties you’ve had to work through, we can recognise what you would have achieved if your circumstances were different.
Special consideration can adjust your rank. This means you can be offered a place in a course at Deakin with a lower rank than would usually be required. You’ve got nothing to lose by applying, and your potential ranking adjustment could be the difference between receiving an offer and missing out.
