For your interview, do you get a score? (Similar to UCAT and ATAR?)

Let's say there are 8 sections, do you get scored out of 120? (Just a random number)

Asking for UWA and Curtin, but I'd assume it's a similar process for every university.

Sorry I haven’t been on the forum at all lately, would someone be able to give me a list of med schools who have had interviews released so far? Thanks so much in advance!

Hi,
I was wondering if anyone knows what the JMP interview format is like? Is it all completely MMI, and how many stations would there be? Or are there general question panels like "why med" etc? Sorry if people have asked this!

Thank you!

Look at page 11 of this document: https://www.newcastle.edu.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0019/532414/2020-JMP-Prospectus-2020.pdf

JMP interviewees have to sign an NDA, so questions about specific interview content cannot be answered.

Hi,
Does anyone know if we will find out what the score for our interview would be ? I realise interview is weighted 40% so will be get a mark or a rating for it so we know how we did in that section ?
Thank you
I suspect this is impossible for any of us to predict with certainty. However, the minimum ATAR for eligibility is 90 and in last year's entry, 92.65 was the lowest. We don't know whether this was a rural candidate or not.

For offers, scores are weighted as follows: UCAT Results: 20% - Interview Results: 40% - Academic Results: 40%. You can definitely compensate a slightly lower ATAR with UCAT and interview scores.

Nope, you won’t get scores for your interview.

It doesn't really matter what sort of scoring is used for the interview, it can be out of 80, 120, or 1000... since it needs to be standardised later.

Among the interviewees ATARs are typically from 9x.x to 99.95, UMAT from 170 to 250, UCAT from 2800 to 3500, interview from y to z. It makes no sense mathematically to sum these on their face values so they must be standardised first.

Two common ways are by ranks, every score is converted to a rank between 1 & X the number of interviewees (thus a common scale between the three components). Or by z-score whereby the common scale is typically -3 to +3 i.e. the number of standard devs a score is below/above the mean score.
