    Something about down under....

    Entry requirements
    Typical offers for applicants being indexed on a scale within the Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) would be based on a rank of 98.5 overall together with documentation of similar performance in relevant individual subjects. These depend on the course applied for, and will be set by the Colleges. For many courses, a top result in mathematics at the highest academic level will form part of any offer, and this can apply to such courses as Economics, Engineering and Natural Sciences, as well as Mathematics itself. https://www.undergraduate.study.cam.ac.uk/australia

    To me, this means they have doubt of the ATAR because ATAR reflect supply and demand more than the intellectual capacity needed to study the course. ATAR stands for Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank. It is a number between zero and 99.95 that tells where a student ranks in that year. ATAR score is the student's percentile position out of all students. For example, ATAR of 90 doesn’t mean the student scores 90 marks in the exam – it means that the student is in the top 10% of that year.

    Here is the ATAR score of students enrolled into Sydney University (2017 intake)

    https://sydney.edu.au/study/admissio...explained.html

    Minimum ATAR : 69.55
    Maximum ATAR : 99.55
    Median ATAR : 93.45 (this is the middle number of the ATAR score)
    Mean ATAR : 91.62 (this is the average ATAR score)

    The statistics shown the average ATAR of students that successfully got a place in Sydney University is 91.62 compares to the minimum entry requirement of 98.5 required to get into Cambridge. In other words, if you are the top 9% of applicants in 2017, you stand a chance to get into Sydney University BUT you must be at least the top 1.5% from australia to stand a chance for Cambridge.

    I wanna know what is the pay scheme for teaching staff with postgraduate degree in local private Uni. So, I registered with an on-line recruitment agency, stating the kind of preferred job and salary range.

    Just recently, I received an email reply that my “CV" matched one of the job postings from a private Uni which is looking for a Senior Lecturer but salary package is below my expected range. The academic pre-requisite for the job is - applicant must have a PhD in Mathematics or Engineering.

    The expected salary I requested is RM20,000/month. If RM20k paycheck is regarded as expensive for senior lecturer with doctorate degree, I wonder what kind of candidate they can attract with salary lower than that !!



    p/s : I actually thinking of teaching after I’m bored with usj.com but looking at this kind of salary, maybe it is better to play sudoku...
