I'd reckon you should be confident in your chances of interviews at both (good job on VR!) - and if you want to spice things up, you could attend the interview in formal attire such as your birthday suit 😏

I believe the WSU GPA hurdle is 6.2+ if you have 1+ FTE so that might make you ineligible (unless you had an ATAR above 95.5) It would best to check yourself here

Otherwise your UCAT scores would make you competitive for interviews at both. Both JMP and WSU have high interview weightings (100% and 75% repsectively) so you will need to perform well

UQ Med: Good shot for an interview

JMP: Maybe an interview, depends the way the new Biomed lateral entry scheme will work out
UNSW: Good shot for an interview
Monash: Likely out of your reach due to their heavy interstate bias
Adelaide: Probably not due to new subquota
Flinders: If you can get a 99.85 and get bonuses then good shot for a place
Curtin: Likely interview
UWA: Likely interview
JCU: Good Shot at an interview with good written

UQ Dent: Good chance at a place
Griffith Dent: If you can get a 99.80+ then good shot
CSU: Maybe, interview last year was 91st
Adelaide: Good chance
JCU: Great chance at a place with a strong written

Good job on those fantastic scores.

You look good for interviews at UNSW, JMP, WSU, UQ, Adelaide, UWA, Flinders (if eligble for UES), and maybe Griffith depending on how the cookie crumbles

Unfortunately your ATAR is probably too low for interstate Monash, although Im not sure how SEAS will play into that - it might boost you up to what you need. UTAS is generally unpredictable, but if theyre the same as last year, you probably wont get an offer.

It's probably worth an application to JCU due to your high ATAR, and Curtin aswell (considering youre already buying QTAC and TISC accounts for UQ and UWA).

EDIT: Didn't see your specific question at first. I dont really know how SEAS works re: med school, someone might be able to help out

Look up SEAS calculator and go on the monash website. Enter your predicted ATAR and SEAS categories and you should get an estimate. This gives an indication on the boost you can get from Monash. Unfortunately idk any other unis that do this.

DENT
TKAO Can give you some advice about UWA, but I think you are in good footing for a Dent interview there with your WA standing, Your UCAT/ATAR will limit you from everywhere else, apart from Latrobe (which may get you a spot with a 99.1) and JCU which would get a spot with a strong written. Good luck!

If I can get my atar to 99.5, would that be helpful in in creasing my chances at UWA med?
Since UWA selects interviewees off UCAT only 99.5 won't improve chance getting an invite. But if you do get an interview it will improve your chance getting a place offer.

From TKAO:

Your UCAT should be able to get you an interview into UWA confidently. For Both. Curtin is pretty much out of the question for you. Prep like you are going to get an interview because I'm certain you are, but realise that that ATAR is very low. An increase to 99.5 is significant enough, but without bonuses I only know of one person with a low 99 like yours that got in. And she's represented Australia in international debating so she blitzed her interview no doubt about it. I only know of people who have gotten in with that ATAR or lower via broadway or rural so your chances with that ATAR is unfortunately small but you will get an interview so do well in it. Also keep your hopes realistic - I don't want to sound harsh, but it's a little wishful at this point thinking that your ATAR is going to rise by 0.4 points especially if you are already in your 99s or you are some fringe case since more than half the year has already gone by.

I'll try my best :). The only reason why I mentioned the 99.1 to 99.5 increase was because I still have my mocks (which are weighted around 12.5% overall) and then the actual WACE exams which are weighted around 50%. So that 99.1 was my predicted and the teachers at my school have been pretty tight when it comes to the mark.

Your UCAT would be competitive under the normal non standard scheme, but with the added tertiary transfer bonus (assuming youre a current UAdel student) (edit: NM they dont do this for dent!, you should still be good)

It would probably be worth an application to UQ and Griffith (and JCU aswell because it wont cost any extra) as last year UQ was 88th %tile UCAT with a 6.5 GPA hurdle for a place offer, and Griffith was 6.875 for a place offer.

Great work!
