Thank you so much!
Do you know what the cut off for Jcu dentistry has been in the past?
Im afraid with 2 HDs and 1 D and 1 C that my gpa when Jcu calculate it will be 6.25, even though its a 6.625 using gemsas calculation.
Will my current university make the calculation based on gemsas or just send the transcript for JCU to calculate it?
Thank you heaps!
like Crow said gemsas is mainly for postgrad entry.
I am not sure about the past cut off, but you should be able to check the offer data for the past few yrs shared by other members in this forum.
the general discussion of JCU dentistry has lots of information as well, for JCU I think personal statement plays an important role in the application.

About to start doing some applications and was just wondering if I had to declare ALL tertiary course (complete or incomplete). Recently finished off a degree with a decent gpa, but old degree was a mess- will I have to include that as well?

Yes, you have to include all past tertiary experience. The universities you apply to will have policy on which they will include (which is usually the latest of the experience, if 1 FTE or more)

Hi guys!
Was wondering if it's more difficult to transfer into UQ dentistry as a 2nd year uni student as opposed to being a school leaver. Eg, would i need a higher UCAT score/GPA than school leavers to get in?

I believe UQ dent applies a Rank 99 hurdle (ATAR 99.0+ GPA 6.5+) then place offers are based solely on UCAT. So only more difficult than for school leavers if your GPA isn't 6.5+.

Also, don't worry about being an existing uni student in first year; a majority of the students who are from AU/NZ are existing tertiary students who transfer, so you won't be in a minority :)
Just a question, is it true that more than half of UQ dent students are international students?

Yes, from UQ admissions website, it's listed that 56% of the 2020 intake were international students.

Hey all,

I don't know if anyone else is having the same issues as me (or if this has been answered elsewhere) but when I apply to dental courses through UAC, Bachelor of Dental Health Science offered by Griffith University does not appear for me. Anyone else? I can see B. Dental Tech and Prosthetics and stuff but not dental health science, lol.

Thanks in advance!!

I definitely remember someone else already reporting this, so I’m guessing it’s been removed from UAC. You could call them to confirm. I don’t suppose you noticed if Griffith GC Med was a UAC option?
 
Hey all,

I got in contact with UAC via email and this was their response.

“To apply for this course you need to apply via QTAC. Not all courses for Griffith University are available through UAC.”

Like Cal and LMG have said, I think UAC has taken it off because I remember applying to dental heath science before through UAC.
