I believe they only look at the most recent degree, however say that "all previous tertiary study may be considered". I'm inclined to believe the latter would only come into consideration if one has completed an honours year or a higher degree, or if they were trying to choose between two applicants with the same ranking.

ETA: The direct quote from the dentistry admissions guide (accessible here: https://www.jcu.edu.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0009/272763/BDS-Information-Sheet_2020-Intake.pdf) is:
The most recent course GPA (Grade Point Average) score will be used to rank applicants who have commenced or completed tertiary studies. While an applicant’s most recent GPA is given the most weight, the applicant’s complete academic profile as supplied by QTAC may be considered. An applicant’s other studies/qualifications that do not generate a GPA score will not be considered.

I’d think yes, but definitely wouldn’t hurt to email the admissions team for official confirmation.

Hello Moderator, I was wondering if a mid-high 80% for UCAT is in the safe zone for UQ dent and Adelaide dent?

Should definitely be enough for Adelaide based on last year. Lowest UMAT percentile receiving an offer was around 83 I believe. But this was a drop in comparison to previous years where the minimum for an Adelaide dent interview was in the high 80%iles. Not sure about UQ since I didn't apply.

Hey guys, just wondering which universities would I have a good shot at in Australia for Dentistry? I will probably have a 99.5 (Hopefully) ATAR or 98ish. My UCAT score was 2870, which using the calculator is sitting between 92 and 93 percentile. Thank you

I’d say you have a very good chance at interviews for a lot of dent schools, and a very high chance of getting directly into UQ Dentistry

Does anyone know the number of positions that were available for Uadel dent in 2017 (for those wanting to begin the course in 2018)?

I believe it was the same as the number of positions available for those beginning Adelaide dent - 38 domestic places. Roughly 50% of places are domestic and the other half are for international students btw

Anyone know why there was a sudden increase in UMAT percentiles (91 i think it was) required for UQ Dent last year? And is this likely to happen again?
