    Hi,

    It sounds like there was a misunderstanding/misinterpretation. You managed to spread panic to other users but it's okay. It happens sometimes.

    You do get a clean slate to an extent. This is how it works:
    • You will need to achieve 6.0 across a degree (e.g. three years) to be eligible to apply for an interview;
    • You will be ranked using the last two years to be shortlisted for an interview offer;
    • You will be ranked using a combination of UMAT, interview, and the last two years to be shortlisted for a course offer.
    As long as you meet the first requirement, your first year's result should no longer interfere.

    In terms of the average GPA, you won't find a better place than here on the internet, in my opinion. The average GPA is pretty useless because people with GPA in the 7's have got in and others with 8's did not due to various reasons such as the interview.

    I hope that clear it up a little.

    Eek D: so sorry about that, guys. I was in a deep panic and frankly quite desperate for some quick answers so I ended up posting here. Just wanted some reassurance, I guess, looking for the people who got in "miraculously". But thank you all so much, and I apologise again for this mishap!! :( my friend mentioning this plus exam stress have gotten to my head :p (EDIT: feel free to delete my posts if they're too misleading for future viewers! I understand >_< )

    Do you think the high GPAs on here are an overrepresentation of the actual cohorts?

    What do you consider high? I think the vast majority of grads are 7.5-8.5 over the last two years as a guess. Probably impossible to know if the scores here misrepresent the whole grad applicant pool

    I think 8s really high. Yeah, it is pretty hard to know if its misrepresented but consider that people who post here might care more about medicine entry and therefore study harder and get better grades are more likely to post here as they are more invested in it. Or maybe the worriers come here (me) but who knows.

    Are there any good threads out there which have some information or tips about the MMI? I’m not sure what to expect, especially because I have applied for Med and Masters of Nutrition and Dietetics, so I’m unsure how the interviews will be tailored to both of those programmes. Does anyone know if the interviewers know what programmes you have applied for before you come into the room?

    Hi,

    This is one of the threads we have on MMI specific to Auckland.

    This is probably a long shot but are there any Otago graduates out there who are still in Dunedin and want to meet up to do some MMI prep?

    Do the copies of our documents have to be certified?

    In the MMI invitation they haven't explicitly stated that they need to be certified so I doubt they would expect you to do so.

    You need to take an original and a photocopy; I imagine they'd do a like-for-like comparison on the day.

    Also do not forget your invitation letter and Police vetting form.

    Yes I do know. The interviewers do not know.

    The interviewers know only your name and nothing else about you.

    Hey Team
    Just wondering what the requirements are for post graduate entry into Medicine at the UoA,
    In terms of UMAT? (is this still taken into account after the offer for interview)
    In terms of GPA ( whats the general intake number, and how is this calculated over the past few years of your degree?, At Otago its (0.5* Y1, +1*Y2 = 1.5*Y3)/3, is it the same at UoA or is it weighted more or less to third year?)
    In terms of Interview, how heavily weighted is this for post graduate entry

    Thanks so much :)

    Hi,

    Welcome back to MSO.

    All of your questions have been asked and answered numerous times on MSO. The answers can also be found on the Auckland website as well. I would recommend having a look through other threads on MSO or the Aucklnad website first. If you find yourself still lost then I am more than happy to help.

    Also, duplicate posts are not allowed on MSO.
