Hey everybody! I've read many posts on this website for months now and it seems you all have a lot of knowledge to share, especially in regards to the admission criteria for Otago and Auckland. I am 22 and currently in my second year of the Bachelor of Nursing through a polytechnic. I yearn every day to study medicine, but I am now realising just how difficult it is to meet the admission criteria in New Zealand. I cannot do HSFY as I have completed tertiary study. Disappointingly, I cannot gain entrance though graduate entry either as I am completing my nursing degree at a polytechnic and not a university (seems unfair if you ask me, we're all regulated by the Nursing Council anyway so all acquire the same education). I realise I can try through the 'other' category at Otago once I graduate and work for a few years. But are there any other options for this med hopeful? Thank you in advance!!
