• Happy holidays to all on MSO! Recently the staff team have noticed a lot of requests for users to PM them with advice and answers to questions. We kindly ask that these requests and answers are posted publicly on the forum wherever possible, unless it is a personal matter that you aren't comfortable discussing publicly. This allows all users to benefit from the advice as opposed to select individuals, and it also saves the repetition of the same advice multiple times. Cheers!
  • UAC releases their offers at 7am on the 8th of January 2021! For those fortunate enough to receive an offer, congratulations! Please post your details here in the 2021 Entry Collated Data thread.

Someone last year said they got invite with a 5.2 after 2 years which is also 96.00...
Guess I just have to wait and see
They convert GPAs to ATAR for selection right? they don't compare raw GPA for undergraduate applicants?


Theres also this in the brochure:

What Year 12 score is the minimum cut off?
To be considered competitive and selected for an interview, an
applicant would need to achieve the following minimum scores:
• Overall Position (OP) of OP 1 - 2;
• Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) of 99.95 - 96.00; or
• International Baccalaureate score of 45 - 39.

Based on what QTAC says I believe it is converted to an ATAR. In terms of a comparison point I would say that if there was 2 applicants for 1 more spot with the exact same converted ATAR who were undergraduate GPA applicants , then Bond would most likely compare the raw GPA of either applicant to determine who to select.

Hi there,

I'm Bond99, currently a clinical year student at Bond.

I have been providing assistance to future students on this forum since the last 2 years, and since I've received new direct messages based off my last year's posts, I thought it would be good to post again and help out anyone who has any questions and needs further assistance with psychometric and interviews.

Kind Regards,
Bond99

When applying to QTAC, does bond have to be our first preference? if so can there be more than 1 preference (more than just bond)
Yupp to be eligible for an invite for psychometric I'm pretty sure you need to have Bond as your first preference. I am a current 2nd year med student at Bond so this may have changed for 2021, correct me if I'm wrong :)

You can definitely have more than 1 preference, but Bond has to be your first !
Hope this helps :))
