    The subjects bonus doesn't apply to medicine, the school-based bonus does. SATAC has a long list of SA schools that qualify for and what matters more is the size of the bonus - it makes a lot of 97.0+ students equal or better than your 99.55

    Adelaide's intake is known to be around 120, the Adelaide 2018 guide says they interview about 800.

    Source for 120 please? Last I read back in 2007 they had 144, and then they increased their medical school size substantially by more than 100, leading to around 200 now (this information is all sourced from actual news articles).

    The increase by more than 100 could be in reference to the addition of Flinders.

    A1 The increase of a 100 spots definitely wasn't in reference to Flinders. However, your data is definitely compelling so I guess I'm to stick with the 120~140 estimate for now.

    In that case, I’d imagine you would be in the running for an interview. We have had someone with GPA 6.1, UMAT 91st%ile get one. The only issue might be if GPA requirement = 6.00 cut off. Is yours exactly 6? Could it be slightly below? <— this is just trouble-shooting by the way.

    I wonder how they justify 0.1 less GPA but 4%iles more UMAT doesn’t get an interview. If you’ve not interviewed elsewhere and are relying on Curtin, it might be worth a call on Monday to check.

    How do you know BMW? A1 said that it's difficult to know whether one will get an offer at Adelaide.

    darian69 My estimate was too generous given I was assuming there were around 180~200 spots for Adelaide. I'd have to change that. But yes, whilst A1 did say its difficult to predict, its not that hard because there's not THAT many people who receive the equity bonus in SA.

    I forgot to post before, but I got a Curtin interview offer as well

    University: Curtin
    Course: Medicine
    ATAR: 99.05
    UMAT: 98th percentile (70/65/62)
    Special Considerations: interstate, non-rural
    Application Type: School leaver

    The dates available are the same as the dates for JMP and UNSW, so I don't think I can make the interview unfortunately. But best of luck for those going for the interview! And to those from VIC hoping for offers soon, good luck also!
