You would have received interview invites at both last year so fingers crossed for no huge UCAT jumps :D Best of luck.

Based on previous numbers, you should get interviews at both JMP and JPM. You would also be eligible for Curtin if your degree is complete, JCU (likely not competitive though, unfortunately), and Bond. Best of luck!

Based on last year's numbers, it's possible you'll need closer to the 99.95 to go with your 92nd%ile. The lowest combo we had reported here for 2021 entry was 99.75 + 94th%ile, particularly if BMP and Port Mac are off the cards for you.

You'll also have to keep your fingers crossed for JMP as the requirement was 2980/93rd%ile for 2021 entry. And unfortunately you're unlikely to get a JPM interview unless the UCAT requirement drops significantly (last year needed 750 for a top up interview).

We can't comment on offers as the interview requirement is too much of an unknown, but you will get interviews for all three courses. Best of luck!

You'll get a JPM interview, but UNSW is unlikely and JCU will depend heavily on your written application.

Best of luck!

You will get interviews for JMP and JPM. UNSW is a complete unknown as you've not provided a predicted ATAR as is specified if you want a UNSW response.

Interviews at JMP, Curtin, UWA, UAdel. UNSW is a bit of an unknown, but fingers crossed! As a Vic local, you should also get a Monash interview. Psychometric test invite for Bond. Griffith is an unknown this year.

UTAS offers are always impossible to predict for non-rural interstaters.

Best of luck!

JMP required 93rd%ile for 2021 entry, though it was also 2980. You will possibly be right on the borderline, keep your fingers crossed! JCU med will depend on your written application, but your GPA is competitive. You should also get a UAdel Dent interview invite.

Best of luck!!
