Default Exemption re: Third Class Honours degrees or not ranked within the highest 70%

Hey guys, just wondering if anyone has had any success getting an exemption from this requirement. I've graduated with a JD and just missed the mark. Pretty demoralising considering i've spent 3 years of hard work and getting stone-walled at this point

I managed to get an earlier exemption so my JD is recognised (in case you're wondering).

Nah, it doesn't matter since you have gotten an earlier exemption. I was actually pretty interested in going for UniSydney JD or NSW JD but in the end, I decided against it and settled for Grad LLB from one of the approved universities. Perhaps you might try to seek an exemption again or practise in Australia ( though you would need a PR to do that).

Cheers, mate.
