Mistake 4: Not Understanding the Importance of Choices 3-5
The way you order your choices in your CAO application is crucial. Some students, unfortunately, overlook this aspect and end up regretting their decision.
Specifically, the order of your 3rd to 5th choices is of paramount importance. This is because if you are offered your 3rd choice, for example, you won’t be offered your 4th to 10th choices, even if you meet the points and minimum entry requirements for them.
So, think carefully about your preferences when filling out your CAO form. Make sure the courses are listed in your genuine order of interest and not just based on points or perceived prestige.
