Hi, I'm due to finish a Physiology BSc at the end of the year. Had been planning to apply for postgrad med at Auckland and Otago. Sat the UMAT this morning. Left too little time at the end to fill in my answer sheet, and only was able to half fill it in (I know, huge mistake - I'm pretty devastated). I know I do quite well at UMAT (97th percentile in first year), but with only a half-full answer sheet I'm expecting a very low mark. I'm figuring that this will definitely be below the UMAT cut-off needed for Otago grad entry. I figure if my grades and interview are really good I might still have a chance at Auckland (I know UMAT is only weighed 15% for ranking there). I'd love some advice from anyone who has done really badly at UMAT and still gone for grad entry - any thoughts? As it is, I'm assuming that if I want to do medicine I'll need to study for another year and apply again. Otago takes your most recent three years - if I do an Honours year, will they include that year in that calculation? For Auckland - it says they just take the previous two years - would that include an Honours year and my third year? Alternately for Auckland - if I chose to start a law degree (for Plan B), would I still be able to apply for med at the end of 2019? Apologies for the million questions, hoping someone can advise me.
