Griffith Griffith Dentistry Discussion

Crow will have a better answer and like mzho said it is a minimum 8 units or one year equivalent to be eligible for Griffith. Note that the full year can be made up of part time study (over a year of actual study broken up). From what I have gathered, the scenario you mentioned is where credits ie 4 units from a previous degree are combined with 4 units from your current degree to make 8 units. I do believe for this to occur the units have to be at the same institution. In the case where the units are combined to make a full year, they all count towards your gpa ie they won’t just consider the 4 units in the current degree due to prior study. Further, I don’t think they count the grades on the specific units unless it’s transferred as specified credit or show the grade/percentage. As Nirav mentioned I think they combine the GPA/2. This is just what I have gathered though and could be wrong.

Yes, for the purposes of applying for undergraduate programs through QTAC/UAC etc, the 1FTE minimum has to come from the same program - if it involves half from one program and half from the other, or transfer credits, then it won’t count.

This would be 8 units minimum unless some units were worth double the amount of credit points - at Griffith each “regular” unit is worth 10CP but if one were to do 6 regular units and 1 20CP unit in the same program, this would also count as 1FTE year of study.

This is the UAC ATAR profile for this January round of offers
https://www.uac.edu.au/assets/documents/atar/ATAR-profiles-Jan_Rd1-2018-19.pdf

It shows the statistics of all the UAC offers on January 11th including Griffith Dentistry.

The documents shows <5 (so obviously 4 or less) got an offer through UAC which means that the huge majority of people who will get an offer ONLY applied to QTAC.
Since we already have 2 people on this thread, there's probably at most 2 more who got a Griffith dental offer through UAC.

Out of these 4 people, the lowest adjusted ATAR was 99.8!!! (this may or may not necessarily be the cutoff for QTAC since it's the lowest score amongst the 4 successful people on UAC. )

nirav and mzho got a GPA of 7 (which should equate to 99.95) so it's not one of them.

Assuming 6.5 = 99.00 and 7.0 = 99.95, an ATAR of 99.8 should equate to 6.88 (which will more than likely be 6.875 rounded up).

So while a sample size of 4 or less is too small to conclude conclusively, I think it can be somewhat deduced that a GPA of 6.875 is perhaps safe for entry??? We'll have to wait and see...

Actually after reading the document, the cutoffs are for Year 12 candidates only. So some of the things written above may not be applicable.

Nevertheless either 1,2,3 or 4 school leavers applying on UAC got accepted and the lowest score amongst themself/themselves is 99.8

See Nirav and Mzho, told you guys not to worry. Welcome to dent fam.
Thank you . I know. You and Crow and everyone was so motivational and always positive.
My apologies as I was very skeptical as after beentrying for past 5 years and near misses for last two years, I wanted to get the offer before I could believe anything.
