Hi bat123, Did you get your bahcelors degree from UoA? My UCAT is also 51% . I will be entering FY this year . I took the UCAT as I was trying to get in Australia Uni. Thinking of getting a degree and going for graduate entry instead as i am stressed out with the UCAT and want to take a break from it as i find it very hard.

Iam not bat123 but I would advise trying your best in FY and using graduate as your back up because working very hard for 1 year is better than working very hard for 3 years. If it’s ucat you are worried about then I don’t think it’s that big of a deal compared to your gpa and interview in UoA...and I’m sure you will only improve this year wen u give it a second go. Better to start working on things like your reading speed for sections like VR because they take time to improve (I learned tht the hard way). UoA only uses your raw score for ucat rather than your percentile so the difference between a 50th percentile candidate and a 90th percentile is not as big (you can easily make up for tht with your gpa and interview.

P.s. I had 2550 (62nd percentile, so not that much difference between your score and mine)

If you have any other questions let me know.

No, I got my degree at AUT but the GPA scale is the same as UoA. My GPA is calculated using the marks I got from my Masters which was a combination of taught papers and a 120 pt thesis, also I'm a non-science grad so I'm not sure how helpful my input will be on this but I'm free to answer any additional questions if you have them.
