    Hey guys,

    My results are below. I want to know if I have a chance of getting in dentistry in any uni, whether in NSW or other states.

    ATAR: 96.80 (completed 2011)
    GPA from bachelor of science degree: 5.125 /7 (completed end of 2015)
    GPA from masters degree (by coursework): 7 /7 (completed mid-2017)
    Work experience: yes - at 3 dental clinics (each 1 week)
    UMAT: yet to sit it this year
    GAMSAT: yet to sit it in September
    Non-rural

    Cheers guys! Any help would be highly appreciated!

    Mostly dependent on your GAMSAT and UMAT results as well as whether universities accept the Bachelors grades or the Masters grades. In any case, if you flunk the UMAT and GAMSAT (or the university doesn't accept your Masters GPA and instead uses your bachelors), then your chances are close to none. On the other hand, if you score well and they accept your masters GPA, then you have around a 1 in 5 chance at the interview stage on average.

    Thanks Mana!

    I called JCU and Griffith today. Both said they don't look at UMAT or GAMSAT and that they will look at Masters. Griffith is more competitive though I believe.

    Even so, at those unis, at the interview stage, your chances are around one in five for each.

    JCU and Griffith do not have any interviews. The lady told me it's purely based on ranks. So, considering my marks, what's your opinion?
