SACE Stage 2: two Science subjects: one chosen from Chemistry, Mathematical Methods (if studied from 2017 onwards. If year 12 studied prior to 2017, the equivalent Mathematics subject was called Mathematical Studies), Specialist Mathematics, Physics; and one chosen from Biology, Geology, Chemistry, Physics; OR IB: two Science subjects (one of Chemistry, Mathematics (SL or HL) or Physics AND one of Biology, Chemistry or Physics)
You should be fine.

After putting me on hold for about 10 minutes, he then said "interview offers will come out at the end of November" and he refused to budge when I said that the website said otherwise lol
You shouldn't have pinned him by the website's info, should've told him but that's *after* the interviews themselves

if we get a uadel dent invite, are the chances of getting an offer simply based on how well we perform in the interview?

Place offer is weighted 40% Interview, 40% marks, 20% UCAT I believe.
Ranking for offer is based on a combination of scores from these three components weighted as follows:
• Interview results: first ranking level
• UCAT Results: second ranking level
• Academic results: meets threshold and final ranking level


It says this on their 2020 brochure, does anybody know what this means?

Would one of the admins be able to clarify this? Thank you :)

It’s taken directly from the Adelaide Dentistry admissions guide, so you aren’t going to get a more official source than that! We believe (despite the wording) that there is still some sort of weighting system applied I.e. interview weighted the most, followed by UCAT and then ATAR.

Why they use ambiguous wording, I am unsure.

For LaTrobe Dent as a non-school leaver, are there interviews? or is it purely on UCAT + GPA? I'm sitting on a 97percentile and HD average right now, so hopefully it will be enough? Haven't found much information on the website :(

Nope, don't think there's any interviews. That score should be good enough to get you in - fingers crossed!

is it a big issue that I haven't had any dental work experience when I'm applying? Will CSU likely ask about this in the interview?

Hopefully! Btw I saw that you contacted CSU last year to ask when offers would be released. Do you remember what number that was or where'd you get the number from? I called them today on their general admissions contact number but I'm prettyyyy sure that the guy on the other end had absolutely no idea what he was talking about. After putting me on hold for about 10 minutes, he then said "interview offers will come out at the end of November" and he refused to budge when I said that the website said otherwise lol
How did you go? Any emails?
