Does anyone know the minimum GPA that a gradate was offered to sit the psychometric exam last year?
I have the exact same issue!Hi guys I applied to Bond med in 2019 after finishing year 12, I received an invite for the Psychometric testing but did not receive an interview. I have completed one year of a Biomed degree with a competitive GPA, however I have been reading some posts about Bond not allowing 2020 applicants to resit the test. Im really confused as to how I can apply if I won't be allowed to do the test again as if I didn't get through the first time, having a higher GPA wont change anything if I can't do the test again
sorry if this is confusing
Bond applications aren't open yet.Hey everyone,
is there any way to study for the Psychometric test and can fee help only cover 150,000.
Can i apply for anything else to get a loan on more of the payment?
also from previous years what is the lowest atar to get in?
haha yh, I'm so confused because I thought all the steps to admission were independent so if I didn't get through the first time how would I the second time, I'm calling them in a bit to find out. Hopefully this gets sorted out.I have the exact same issue!
We should ask them these questions at that info session tommorow.
Post any updates if you hear from the faculty about this issue. Thnx mate.haha yh, I'm so confused because I thought all the steps to admission were independent so if I didn't get through the first time how would I the second time, I'm calling them in a bit to find out. Hopefully this gets sorted out.
Yes but it is sooo dodgy that you cant repeat this test when it is a critical part of the selection stage. Bond are being kinda shifty imo because how else is a student able to demonstrate that they are now a better candidate for the program?From reading around I think Bond seem to want to limit people from doing the test 2 years running. Just because you did not get an invite one year does not mean you will not the next. It all depends on the cohort applying. This changes every year. It does however mean you don’t get the chance to practice the test and then try again the following year. Being a personality test you should not need to practice but I guess this is debatable. They should be able to access your results from last year when you apply this year. There is an webinar tomorrow afternoon at 5pm so perhaps this information will be made clear at this time.
Yea someone told me theres around 50 people who interview for the grad spots with around 20ish getting in.Also regarding Psychometric testing for the Graduate Bond course number. From my research on these pages plus PD I have found the following. The GPA necessary (for being offered a test) for those who have not completed their course has been less than for those who have finished. I have seen students with a 5.5+ GPA say they have been offered a test before they finish their course. I have a friend who was offered one with a 5.9+ GPA even though the Bond website suggested 6.0 was the minimum. However once a student has completed their course the GPA needed seems to be higher. The lowest I have seen is 6.12 and 6.15 is the lowest I have seen that went through to interviews after completing the test. My friend was not successful getting a test offer with a 5.9+ GPA last year once he had finished his course. Therefore the number last year must have been between 5.9 and 6.12. If posters would divulge a GPA for an unsuccessful application we would have more information. That said the cohort changes every year so who knows really what it will be this year. There is very limited information online. In fact we don’t really even know how Bond calculates the GPA. I think it must be an average due to the amount of different classifications on the official website but it is not clear. Offers for these graduate places are very competitive due to the small number available.
And I’m sure a lot more than 50 apply to do the test.Yea someone told me theres around 50 people who interview for the grad spots with around 20ish getting in.
Have a look at the website. It really depends how many years you have done and what you have completed but it doesn’t really explain how the actual GPA is calculated. Being a private university they are not part of GEMSES so it’s not like we can assume they calculate using the GEMSES method.how do they calculate GPA's for masters by coursework?
It wouldn't be too outlandish to think that theyre would be members of staff here. I think I remember MSO being referenced on an AMSA document somewhere. Plus i dont think anything is to be gained by impressing or outing this member of staff because its not like theyre gonna push you through for being nice to them on MSO or anythingGuys I reckon that we may have a secret member of Bond Medicine staff amongst ourselves.
I will not name name names because I am not certain, but someone in this thread and the other ''main thread'' has legit the exact same sentence structure that I have seen from another very important member of the facility!
In what context did this forum come up in that document? LolIt wouldn't be too outlandish to think that theyre would be members of staff here.

Have you contacted Bond Med Admissions directly to ask them? They'll be the only ones who can tell you with any degree of authority.Hi guys, can someone tell me if I should apply as an undergrad or postgrad for bond med- I finished my 3 years undergrad last year but my last unit finished in Jan this year and I'm still waiting for the results for that which will come around end of Jan-Feb (so I haven't gotten a final GPA yet and idk if it will be updated by 31st Jan) - what should I do?
TBH, I'd phone them. It's much harder for them to ignore/put off responding to a phone call. Even if you get "opinions" from people here, it's never going to be confirmation of what you are required to do, and you'll still need confirmation from Bond, particularly given this could be a key decider in the pathway that your application takes/your overall eligibility. It's definitely NOT something I'd leave to an internet forum.Yes I sent them an email haven’t replied for days, just wanted to get other opinions
