Your UCAT is definitely on the low side for UNSW. You will likely (just) get an interview, but will need a pretty exceptional performance to land an offer.

What about UQ and Adelaide? I saw in some other posts that there isn't much info on both of these but what are your thoughts?

Tbh, I'd say UAdel is a no-go with a UCAT of 90th and being a non-local. It was around 90th last year when there was no preferential treatment of locals. UQ will hopefully offer you an invite though.

ETA: your best bets will be JMP and JPM/WSU. And Griffith if the 99.75 eventuates.

You'll definitely receive a JPM interview, and you'll likely receive a JMP one, too (the cut off last year was 90th, so let's hope it doesn't shift, though it may slightly due to their pathway students moving into Med for the first time in 2021). EAS will help you out for UNSW, but as it's impossible to say by how much, you'll just have to keep your fingers crossed for this one. JPM is your most certain. Best of luck!

You're a fair bit in excess of the GWS requirement for last year so, assuming there are no changes, you should be right for JPM. The only Uni you might struggle to get an interview at is Monash. You should also get a Griffith offer.

Best of luck!

You’ve already asked 3 times that I can recall, once with an ATAR prediction of 99.20. Giving a range of 99.0-99.5 doesn’t make it any easier to give you an idea (makes it harder, in fact). You really just need to wait until invites come out now.

No, as per the reply you got from A1 elsewhere.

If the requirements for JPM/WSU remain the same or thereabouts as last year, then you’ll just miss out unfortunately.

The lowest UCAT we had reported for Monash rural last year was 85th, but I’m not sure how much lower (if at all) interview invites actually went. Keep your fingers crossed and focus on exams for now.

ETA: you should get a JMP and UAdel invite. UNSW is hard to tell as they rank rurality and don’t use the RA classification you’ve provided. You also haven’t provided your JPM/WSU calculation so I can’t comment on that.

Unfortunately we can’t comment on JCU beyond saying that, if you’ve submitted an application, you’re in with a chance. You’ll also get a Bond psychometric invite.

I doubt even EAS can save your UCAT for Monash, unfortunately.

Best of luck for Bond, JCU, and your back up plans!
