Pretty sure you don't, otherwise it'd be provisional dent. It's a big decision though so hopefully someone more experienced can confirmFor UQ Dentistry is there a specific GPA you need to maintain or else you can't progress, like their provisional med? Just deciding between med and dent there.
Thanks in advance
This is easy to answer. With UQ Med you won't start MD until 3-4 years later, thus the MD offer now is in advance/provisional. UQ Dent is undergrad, you start into it right away and need to pass each year just like other undergrad courses.Pretty sure you don't, otherwise it'd be provisional dent.

I suspect the word credit here means credit (as in accreditation), not the Credit gradeHi all,
Thank you for your responses the reason I thought there was potentially a GPA which needed to be maintained for UQ dent was because in the program rules it says "A student must not enrol for a subsequent year of the program until getting credit for all courses in the preceding year" (https://www.uq.edu.au/student/ProgramRules2019/2019-Bachelor-of-Dental-Science-Honours-2367.pdf - (1) 4.6 continuous enrolment) so does that mean you need to get at least a credit in everything (not just pass)? I mean I think it's attainable (hopefully) but just wanted to clarify.
I assume you are applying to UQ dentistry (please correct me if not) - unfortunately if your ATAR equivalent is 98.95 then you will just miss out on meeting the 99.0 ATAR hurdle. However, if you did LOTE or Maths C (or equivalent) then you’ll receive bonus points which will raise your ATAR above the hurdle.Hi,
How does the Queensland OP system work (do they round .95 to entry ranks higher?), and would they ever consider an OP2 (atar equivalent of 98.95 which is .05 off of OP1) ?
is the preferencing situation the same for UAC and QTAC i.e. the universities don't know what your preferences are hence it doesn't matter?James2001 - I'd say your chances are okay. Maybe second or third round? Not too sure about preferences though, maybe A1 can comment.
Edited by LMG! : I answered the preferencing question in another thread. I know you ask about Dent here, but please don’t multipost the same question in multiple places James2001
Yes, we believe this to be the case as we've had MSO users report receiving phone call offers from JCU a day or two prior to QTAC offer release and that they have been asked during that conversation what preference they have JCU on QTAC.is the preferencing situation the same for UAC and QTAC i.e. the universities don't know what your preferences are hence it doesn't matter?
In an FAQ Gemsas (which is like UAC/QTAC for grad entry) says the unis may know what your preferences are, but they are not supposed to discriminate on that basis. I strongly believe they don't even want to because if they did and it was later found out someone would lose their job.is the preferencing situation the same for UAC and QTAC i.e. the universities don't know what your preferences are hence it doesn't matter?
