2 years ago, I was in the same situation. I was in my first year of uni with pretty average GPA but quite high NCEA marks (NZ high school qualification). When I applied, my 1st year first semester marks were considered for interviews and total 1st year GPA was considered for a place. This was confirmed by calling QTAC, however, this was 2 years ago..so might be different this year. But doubt its changed. I will try to find a link to this info. and post it here.Can you confirm that with a link?
I'm doing dent tech at the moment, and pretty much all of our cohort wants to move into dent, it's extremely competitive. Plus if you don't get an ace GPA after your first year, you're pretty much screwed because 2nd and 3rd year requires you to do many lab practicum's which are marked off how good you are practically. It's EXTREMELY hard to get a high GPA in these prac's because, for example, they tell you to construct something, then after you do it they compare it to industry standards and mark you off that. For someone who's never done it before, it's very hard to achieve high marks.so for example, if i do a year of say a bachelor of dental technology and do amazing, will those grades be sufficient for an entry into dent?
You can apply to JCU, UQ, GU, CSU, UADEL & La Trobe for undergraduate.thanks hutch, but does this only apply for griffith university or are there any others as well? Im guessing melbourne would be excluded as it only take postgrads.
The reason I ask is because ive just recently found my calling in dentistry through an opportunity I received to work at a dentist, but my completed bachelor of science grades are not up to par.
I want a fresh start..
