    As far as I know the UMAT cutoff is the same, it's that the ATAR requirement for GWS students is lower.

    Edit: I stand corrected, see A1's post

    Being GWS your ATAR is good for WSU, you can but won't need to use GPA.

    S1+S2 cutoff for non-GWS was around 129-130, whereas iirc low 120s for GWS. Take a look of the collated data in LMG!'s post in the Interview forum.

    Anyone have an idea of how long it would take to repay the fees for bond med. Was considering as an option as sourcing the funds needed for tuition fees isn't a problem (loan), but as you progress through as an intern, resident etc. how long would it take to pay it all back? Just want to get a realistic idea of how bad the damage would be :)

    That would be dependent on your other ongoing costs (ie your living expenses, other debts etc) plus the rate of interest you are paying for the loan you take out. You can easily look up the rates of pay for each tier of junior doctor according to the state EBA, but this must be taken in context of your outgoing costs additional to the loan.

    Hey guys, I m planning to apply into australian graduate medical schools. My question was does any university require a CV or letter or interest that applicants needs to give in?

    Are you a domestic applicant? I have no idea re. international applicant requirements, but if you’re domestic, some universities require an entire portfolio of personal responses (UND and Wollongong to start with).

    The GEMSAS guide is likely to have the information you need.

    New to the forum.

    Any link to practice/previous MMI station questions for WSU and the JMP at Newcastle?

    Thanks

    You won't find any exact questions for WSU or the JMP as applicants are made to sign a non disclosure agreement which prohibits them from releasing the contents of the interview.

    Hey guys,

    The JMP says that you need to have completed one full year of university study by the end of 2018 to be considered. So my question is, do they count trimester 2 results as part of your GPA? Do they have access to your results for trimester 2 before interview invites etc... Has anyone every gained entry to the JMP after one year of study? Im currently doing a bachelor of science at UNE if that helps.

    Thanks :)

    JMP do not have access to your full year of results prior to offering you an interview. Interview invites are based solely on UMAT performance. GPA is a hurdle that is ‘ticked off’ almost at the end and has, in the past, resulted in people being invited for interview who were then ineligible for a place offer regardless of their interview performance because of their GPA. It’s one of the vagaries of the JMP offer system but clearly one that doesn’t impact them too much as it’s been the same for a while.

    And yes, people gain entry to JMP following one year of Uni study every year.

    I was wondering if I had a chance of getting into the JMP program with a gpa of 5.3/7, this is based of my 2017 marks and as I changed degree this year that I don’t particularly enjoy and was considering taking sem 2 off and using last year mark or is it worth sticking it out and using this year I’m sitting at 6/7 atm

    Once you are above the hurdle (5.0 for an incomplete degree to be on the safe side) GPA doesn't matter much for JMP. It's then all on UMAT for interview selection and all on the interview for place offers. Best of luck with your UMAT test.
