WSU & JMP will give you an interview without caring much about GPA at the invite stage. Afterwards if you qualify for an offer it will be subject to your GPA (at end of year) passing the hurdle, in your GWS case you need either ATAR 93.5+ or GPA 5.5+ for WSU (or 6.0+ if they rule you have done less than 1 FTE year uni) and 4.7+ for JMP.

In case JMP rules you have done less than 1 FTE year they will check that your ATAR was 94.3+.
WSU GPA thresholds have increased to 5.9 for GWS 1 FTE year uni and increased for other completion levels as well. I guess zero chance for WSU then? because max I can get it to is 5.75 :/

If your ATAR was above 93.5, they can still look at that to get you past the hurdle.

Anyone willing to bet on chances for an interview at WSU with a 93%ile and a 7.0 GPA @ 0.75FTE, non-GWS?
The simple answer, is no one really knows; it will depend on how they use the ucat scores, because last year is not a good representation as they had an algorithm to calculate section score weightings, and it was around the 94th.

If I did an 'average to below average interview', what do you think are my chances at UWA or Curtin with 99.95/86th%?

One would have to make quite a few assumptions to give you an accurate answer to this. To be honest, I don’t think questions like this are very useful anyway - if we tell you you can do “pretty bad” or “below average” how will you measure that, and will you perform or prepare for your interview any differently? The best thing you can do is prepare as well as you can and perform your best on the day.

What about 88%ile and 6.25 GPA (completed degree) for non-rural applicant from Canberra? I'm a bit confused about how GPA is used by Curtin and I couldn't find much on their site either.

We have very limited data for non-standard applicants at Curtin, so this is very difficult to answer. I believe that score combination will be enough to land you an interview, but there's not an overwhelming amount of data to support that so I can't stand by it with any certainty.

What would the predicted cut-off for wsu interview invites be? I am A NON-GSW applicant with a 2990 (96%) score. Is this enough to get an interview

As UCAT is new we have nothing to base it off yet, we'll know in a week's time.

I'd be very surprised if this wasn't enough for a WSU interview. I'd be feeling confident if I were you.

Are they sending interview offers in one week's time? Are they allocating times or do we have to log on and allocate a time?
Afaik only JMP allocates you a date/time. All other schools ask you to book your own via their online booking systems.

A1 I would like you to give your opinion as to whether 96% (non-gsw) percentile would make an interview. This is is because
I need to make a decision to buy an interview course (not just asking for the sake of it).

Thanks in advance

Mod edited out caps.
