    UTAS MBBS: Entry Information and Discussion

    Following discussion with several people from UTAS MBBS (and related) administration, we have now been told several times that 2018 entry will be the same as 2017 entry for UTAS. Given this (and given how different 2017 was from previous years, not to mention confusing!) I thought I'd put...

    What chance do I have of making it into medicine?

    I am really interested in doing medicine at UTAS but I am not sure if I will get in and am wondering what sort of marks I will need in the UMAT. I am expecting to get somewhere around 90-95 atar but I do not think I will get 95. I also qualify as a rural student if this makes a big difference...

    UTAS Applicant Support Group

    For all its trials and tribulations, the one thing I can say about the UTAS application/offer debacle for 2017 entry is: the friends I've made here at MSO have made it all worthwhile. I think we've been amazing support for, and supporters of, each other, and I'd love to continue that on in some...

    This is a thread for anyone applying to study the undergraduate MBBS degree at the University of Tasmania from 2017.

    UTAS MBBS: Interstate Entry Requirements

    Hello, I'm just wondering if anyone knows how the entry system works for UTAS? I'm an interstate applicant and I understand the ATAR cutoff is 95, but is this just a threshold or is this weighted with UMAT to determine entry? Or is entry based on UMAT alone? If anyone has had prior experience...
