Applying for sem. 1 or 2?

Hey guys,

I wanted to ask those who are applying to australian unis, do you apply for the sem.1 in february or the sem.2 in july? I've read on UNSW page that IB students who finish in may can apply for sem.2, but does that mean we cannot apply for the one in february? And does it make any difference? If I apply for sem.2 does it mean that I've missed a part of the course, or what?

I'm new to it, so sorry if it's a stupid question :P

Unlike high school, universities usually offer same courses in both fall and winter(spring) semesters. Very rarely are courses only offered once a year. That means if you apply for mid-year entry, you just take the same courses as though you started in February. If you apply for semester 1 entry, then you have to wait half a year without school or you could just directly go to school in July with a very short break after high school.
