    Confirmed what the others said re: Dentistry. Probably add in LaTrobe dent too into the mix.

    Does anyone know if the ATAR cut off varies at Nathan compared to Gold Coast for Griffith?

    Yes - these are two different preferences on QTAC and therefore have 2 different cutoff scores. As a past guide, the cutoffs have been around 99.70 for Nathan and 99.80 for Gold Coast in the first round. During the second round the cutoff may drop - last year it dropped to 99.65 based on MSO offers data, though I wouldn’t count on it dropping this low in future.

    By direct entry do you mean the Chancellor's pathway (which is anything but direct) or the graduate pathway (which requires a completed degree and prerequisites in anatomy/physiology/biochemistry)?

    Just double checking, the UNSW pathway for non standard applicants would be by enrolling in the UNSW Bachelor of Medical Science and transferring 'laterally' later on?

    Yes that's the one. Bear in mind many seniors here on MSO advise to consider any MedSc choice carefully before enrolling. In addition the UNSW MedSc transfer pathway (different to applying as non-standard) provides only 10 or fewer Med places to likely a few hundreds in the MedSc cohort.

    So if I put #1 USyd #2 UNSW in Dec Round 2, if I got the USyd offer, then it will be a confirmed offer and then I could remove USyd entirely from the list and put UNSW back to #1 for Jan Round 1. But if I do not get an email for the UNSW Med interview, can I assume that I am out and I could remove UNSW Med from the preference list?

    The Overall percentile curve (see on page 46 this thread) extends past 236 on the horizontal axis, so 250+ is possible.

    I can confirm that the highest score I have heard of this year (and for that matter pretty much EVERY year) is a fair way above 236.

    Yes, before removing USyd you must accept the offer and in some cases that requires you to enrol in the course as well. This enrolment can be withdrawn without penalty later if you get a better offer.

    I wouldn't put myself into this situation where I'd need to remove UNSW to make room for a new pref at that stage. But it's up to you.

    Thanks, if I put #1 UNSW Med and #2 USyd Physio, in the Dec Round 2, if USyd gives me the offer, this offer will be "pending a higher offer". Will this offer be considered as confirmed if I do not get the UNSW offer later in the Jan round?

    Flinders may consider you if you have enough bonus points to bring your score up to around 99.85ish. Otherwise you're probably out of luck for all the UMAT-based schools for medicine.

    I believe that's how it works i.e. in the Jan round you will get either a Med offer or the Physio offer, but can't confirm. Best to get an answer in writing from UAC.

    If you apply for a umat recheck, would that mean you would have to go and apply for all the universities anyway? As you would receive your mark in October sometime even if it did or did not change...

    Yes, if that’s true re. the release date for a re-mark (I’ve not actually checked), then almost all Med application deadlines are towards the end of September so you’d need to apply to all the ones you’re interested in and just hope for an improved score.
