The SATAC system lets you enter six preferences – it's wise to use them all. Just remember to enter your 'dream' degree as your first preference.
Your second preference should be your number two option, and your third preference should be your third option. Use the remaining preferences for degrees that are aligned with your interests and possibly provide a pathway into your preferred degree.
Your order of preferences is really important, because you receive only one offer at a time. SATAC will always offer the highest preference for which you are eligible and competitive.
Eligibility varies for different degrees – see our Degree Finder for detailed info on entry requirements.
