    Hi all,

    I'm hoping to learn more about how CSU's regional location adjustment scheme works. While I don't live in a rural area, their website states that my postcode makes me eligible for five points added to my selection rank.

    Does anyone know how this would relate to UMAT scores? I got 81st percentile (a bit below the high 80s they've required in previous years), so any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Hi all,

    My name is Jiaxing and I’m in my final semeter of my post-grad degree. I got 53/50/66 (79%ile) this year in the UMAT and my GPA is currently about 6.25.

    I am contemplating to apply for Medicine and Dentistry all over Australia and NZ, but I am unsure about the EAS scheme and how it can benefit my chances of being offered an interview and/or an offer.

    Due to some severe family circumstances which have occurred over the last 5 years, I will be applied under 3 EAS schemes.

    Can somebody provide some help as to how the EAS can benefit my chances and where I should apply?

    Hey Jiaxing,

    I'm in a pretty similar position to you, in that that I'm also applying for EAS and got a UMAT in the 81st%ile. While I haven't found anything with concrete evidence, I do think it may be worth applying for CSU, as their website states that they do use EAS to give bonus points, but they don't seem to care too much about ATAR/GPA (I could be wrong, but this is just how I'm interpreting the information supplied on their website).

    As a result, I feel it's possible that they use EAS for UMAT, or at least final offers?? While it could just be my wishful thinking, it's definitely something to consider if you're still having trouble finding anything

    Good luck! If you find anything that could help the both of us, please pm me :)

    Correct me if I am wrong but I thought once you had a record of tertiary study you can no longer apply for EAS?

    The EAS brochure says Year 12 or equivalent. So, I take that to mean ATAR or equivalent, which would be GPA?

    This would make me inclined to say you’re not eligible. There are multiple references to year 11/12 marks being affected for a period of 6 months plus. I’ll have a bit more of a read.

    ETA: this might save you; “Some institutions will consider EAS applicants with a record of tertiary study. International students cannot apply for EAS. ”

    You probably need to contact the relevant unis directly to gauge their positions, particularly for Med/Dent entry. Or do an application and get official feedback that way.

    I read in a WSU transparency pdf that EAS did not apply to anyone who had studied at the tertiary level. If I can find it I will post the link. Anyway, it does not matter, just fill in the EAS form on UAC and then it will send you a list of all courses and institutions that you are eligible for.

    Hey firstsnow, you're probably better asking CSU directly, unfortunately, as I've never seen anyone post internal transfer scores for CSU dentistry on here.
