Creativity has no limits – why we have ditched ATAR and OP requirements

We know what it’s like to feel completely overwhelmed at exam time.

 

You’re exhausted. You’re trying to keep up with a bunch of different subjects, fit in casual work whenever you can and maintain a social life all at the same time. Your time at High School is coming quickly to a close and instead of being able to enjoy it, all you can think about is that annoying number – your ATAR or OP. What if we told you we could ease a little bit of stress for you and make that number not such a big deal anymore?

Hear us out…

Due to the creative nature of each of our eight courses, JMC Academy has removed any ATAR or OP limitations for enrolment into our courses. Instead, all you will need to do is book a time to come in for a chat with our student admissions team to talk about your interests and determine if JMC is the best fit for you. You can even pop in before you do your exams and apply for early admission to really ease that pressure valve (as long as you promise to finish year 12 before you start).

We think your High School years are some of the most important (and fun) times of your entire life. You spend a number of years making best friends, finding out who you are as a person and figuring out what you want to do with the rest of your life. Some people will knuckle down with aspirations of becoming a lawyer or doctor and thrive on the challenge of hitting the books and getting that magic number up as high as it possibly can. But that’s not for everyone.

What about those of us who just don’t really see the point in writing a 10,000 word essay on ‘Belonging’ or don’t care about knowing how to implement the Pythagoras Theorem correctly? Those of us who use their instrument as their outlet or just love to draw, use Photoshop, shoot film or sing? Those who don’t want to be stuck in an office every day for the rest of our lives, but to practice our creativity day in and day out and get paid for it.

At JMC, we are firm believers that creativity has NO limits and we want to make sure that if you truly want to study your passion that you’re not held back by an ATAR or OP that is distinguished by a maths exam. We’re by no means saying that working hard in school and nailing your exams isn’t super important and definitely think that while you’re there you should put everything you have into it. All we’re saying is that we believe that your creativity is not defined by a number, but rather the passion inside you that drives you to do what you love doing every day so much that it’s all you could ever imagining doing as your future career.

We hope knowing this will allow all of our emerging creators out there to be able to take a deep breath and enjoy the rest of your time at High School – just don’t forget to keep practicing!
