Successful portfolios are selected as follows: Portfolios are assessed by a panel of departmental assessors according to the specified assessment criteria. Candidates who are competent in all tasks and projects are admitted. Candidates who are not competent in all tasks and projects are not admitted. Candidates who are competent in some but not all tasks and projects are re-assessed and admitted based on the highest number of competent tasks and projects in a descending order. In the above-mentioned group of portfolios, previously disadvantaged candidates and candidates with high M- and APS- scores are given preference. If all submitted portfolios are assessed as competent, portfolios that demonstrate best practice will be accepted in order of merit, based on the number of seats available. Candidates are informed in writing of the portfolio assessment. Candidates who are not admitted may request to receive feedback on the reason for their submission not being successful. Online entrance selection requirements: Online worksheet to assess basic English skill, maths literacy skills, paragraph writing and drawing skills. Digital submission of a drawing.
