    Thanks, I wasn't aware that there were seperate pools for both rural/non-rural students. I didn't mean disadvantage in the terms of socio-economical factors, etc. Just in terms of a comparative if they were to compete with rural students into getting into the course. I am actually more confused about what I am writing now then before so think I will stop lol.

    Yeah, the rural application pathway is completely seperate to general applications for all non-standard Universities that I've applied to previously (JMP, WSU, UNSW, and UTAS). It has involved completion of additional paperwork for all four of those (ranging from short answer questions to statutory declarations to requiring references). I'm not sure if that still stands for Curtin and JCU as I've not applied to them. At UTAS in particular, the written application for rural students appears extremely important and a large factor in determining offer status once you've reached the UMAT and ATAR/GPA hurdles.

    Howdy ya’ll,

    I have a question regarding preferencing, specifically where to place CSU’s BDentSc in my UAC preference list. Is it true that one will be denied an interview, if this degree isn’t a first preference?

    I vaguely recall reading this, while trudging through prehistoric MSO posts; I apologise for not linking it.

    Hi everyone, I am in my first year of a 3 year undergraduate degree and planning on applying for postgraduate medicine in 2020 for 2021 entry. I know that GAMSAT results are valid for two years. Therefore, the following results will be valid: 2019 September, 2020 March and 2020 September. However, I am unsure that if I sit the GAMSAT in march, 2019 if this result will also be valid for entry to medicine for 2021.

    Hey Gemsik,

    Well, there's only one set of applications processed a year. So if you're sitting the 2019 March GAMSAT, you can apply during the 2019 applications (for 2020 entry) or 2020 application (for 2021). Your results would have then expired afterwards. However, your 2020 September sitting of the GAMSAT would not be valid for 2021 entry (as applications for the year are based on the March sitting), you would have to wait for to apply the following year in 2021 for 2022 entry. That's my understanding at least.

    All the best with your academic goals.

    For 2020 applying 2021 entry, March 2019 GAMSAT can be used but not the Sept 2020 as its results come out too late for consideration in Sept-Oct.
