It depends which med school.Is it needed to have 48 credit points in first year if i am applying as a non standard?
I have credit points from a previous degree but not sure if that counts in the total when i apply end of this year. Basically I am trying to decide if i should study 4 or 3 units this semester so I can aim to get a high GPA.
- UNSW apparently will take all your tertiary studies into consideration so GPA will be combined of previous degree plus the new units, whatever the number of credit points.
- JMP uses only the most recent study program provided it's 1+ year FTE (48+ credit points). If less than 1 year JMP uses your previous degree as your most recent. (But the hurdle is quite low you shouldn't have a problem either way)
- WSU is similar to JMP except it's 1+ semester FTE (and higher hurdle for 1 semester vs 1 year). JCU I believe is like this as well.
