Is a second class honours enough to get into Griffith Dentistry?

According to qtac an Hons 2a is worth a rank 99.

I don't think it's enough. Can't find anywhere that QTAC says 2A = Rank 99 but even if true, it is the minimum requirement. There's no higher Rank to indicate the true cutoff so ATAR ~99.5 or GPA ~6.7 is used instead.

If you want to calculate your GPA see page 43 & 78 for Griffith > http://gemsas.edu.au/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/2018-Medicine-GEMSAS-Admissions-Guide-v1.5.pdf

"For Bachelor’s degrees, the GPA will be calculated using the GEMSAS grading schema and will be calculated over the final three years of full-time study."

"The GPA for completed Honours degrees will have a final year GPA applied according to the classification awarded (as per the conversion table in this guide 2A=6.0). The balance of the GPA calculation will be based on the final two years of the undergraduate degree."

just to confirm, this is for embedded honours right? standalone honours is given a rank of its own (without being calculated with the undergraduate GPA)

GEMSAS is only for graduate entry medicine/dentistry, so you can safely ignore the above. Griffith will look at a standalone honours as its own qualification for the purposes of calculating your GPA for entry into dentistry.
