Actually, the cut off has always been around the 6.7 mark. When i got accepted (2013) it was 6.75 for first round.Thank you!!!!!!
Have a look at the past threads for Griffith entry. It is possible to get in with a GPA below 7.0. However be warned that the GPA will still be highly competitive. I would say that a GPA of above 6.75 is 'safe' as Time said for a first round offer. But given that CSU has introduced UMAT, this may put pressure on GPA this year.
I think you can calculate your GPA yourself. UNSW uses HD/D/C/P as its grades for its courses yes?Hi DSM,
I'm at UNSW and they use WAM. Currently I have a WAM of 87.25. Is that above the 6.75 GPA you're referring too?
AFAIK for non-QLD students it's simply their ATAR. For QLD students it's an ATAR-equiv number provided by QCAA to further define their rank within OP1. For non-standards Mana found this post that says GPA 6.5 = 99+, if last year's cutoff was 99.50 I guess it converted to around 6.7" Griffith then discriminates between all applicants ranked 99 by applying the GU discriminator to their first order rank which then gives them a second order rank. "
Anyone know what this 'GU discriminator' is?
The second order rank is determined from the first order rank, which is determined from your highest scoring degree. Thus, they will use the 99 to rank you for entry. If your ungraded degree translates to an ATAR equivalent of 99.00, then you will most likely miss out on a place at Griffith.My rank (99) was determined by my completed research Masters degree. This is an ungraded degree. So what would my second order rank be? Determined from my undergrad gpa? If they do use my undergrad gpa, I definitely won't make it in with my 6.1 gpa.
Would you know what atar my ungraded degree translates to? I've tried calling and asking but the lady had trouble working it out. I've seen people on this forum saying their 1st class honours translated to a 7/7 gpa. Im hoping they do the same for my mastersThe second order rank is determined from the first order rank, which is determined from your highest scoring degree. Thus, they will use the 99 to rank you for entry. If your ungraded degree translates to an ATAR equivalent of 99.00, then you will most likely miss out on a place at Griffith.
