Although UNSW website says the minimum criteria are ATAR 96 *AND* 70 WAM, I believe either the word AND is incorrect or UNSW is not enforcing it. Two reasons:
- Last year a non-standard with 95.6 did get an interview.
I have received a reply from UNSW Med regarding this^, very logical but unfortunately not good news
Last year the change to 'Best of' (together with requiring *both* ATAR 96+ & 70+ WAM) was implemented quite late. Which meant at application time the rule in effect was ATAR+GPA > 96. So UNSW applied the benefits of both rules - 'best of' was used provided ATAR+GPA > 96, including any sub-96 ATAR.
From this year 96+ will be required as described on the website. I'd like to thank again the UNSW staff for this clear explanation.
