HSC True Reward Early Offer Program

Our HSC True Reward early offer program will give school leavers much needed peace of mind, providing students an early offer into most university courses based on their Year 11* or Year 12 results.

HSC True Reward was first launched in 2017, providing students an early offer into Western based on HSC results, instead of a scaled ATAR, following analysis showing subject performance is a robust key performance indicator of student success.

Students will also, as part of the program, get access to Western's ground breaking digital experience platform - Alpha Edge. The Alpha's Edge playlist within the platform will allow students to explore learning activities around career path decision making as well as university preparation.


*Offers made on Year 11 results are based on the condition that students successfully complete their HSC and any other specified requirements.
