    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.

    Hi, not sure if this is the right board, but could someone please give their opinion on my chances?

    UMAT: 80 (66/53/51=170)
    Predicted ATAR: 98.1
    Rural: RA2/ MMM4/RRMA5 (Victoria)
    Minor EAS for parents' FTB and my minor disability
    I've applied to every undergraduate medicine course in Australia.

    Thanks!

    Rural 98.1/80th stands very good chances anywhere you apply, except UNSW/Curtin as they may not recognise RA2 as rural.
    If your actual ATAR won't drop below 97 you are practically assured of at least a UQ offer.

    AnAspiringDoc is RRMA5 and MMM4 so they are definitely rural for UNSW, and Curtin. Also stands a good chance for both.

    Thanks A1 and Logic!
    May I ask why UQ in particular? Also do I have a chance of an Extended Rural Cohort (Monash) interview?

    UQ has had very low cut offs for rurals in the past few years (with last year the UMAT cut off being in the 120s and other times reaching around 150s) both of which you are above. The 97 ATAR is a cut off for them, so provided you meet that, your 80th gives you a very high chance of an offer. You should as a Victorian also receive an interview for Monash (I think they're the same as normal interviews? and then if you just put it as a higher pref, you should get it)

    In addition there's no interview (this year) at UQ so we can say practically assured of an offer. Where an interview is required it's an unknown factor in your final ranking for place offers.

    Like you we don't know how much the cutoff will change this year. Considering your 65 S1 you are two full marks above last year's 175:63 so I'd say 90+% likely you will be in.

    Of course we don’t. I suspect UQ don’t even know which way it will move until they start to look at this year’s applications.

    You could look at the published cut-offs, they’d be the only real guide, and see how they’ve moved the past few years, but IIRC they’re a bit all over the place (up and down).

    Question: Interested in UNSW, JMP, WSU, Monash etc. etc.. What would you say are my chances are of getting in on a non-rural application (specifically UNSW)? (would prefer to not have placement restrictions etc., but would ultimately rather be in med)

    You’ll definitely get interviews at WSU and JMP. Also likely UNSW. I’m less certain about Monash but that’s because I’m not sure altogether, not because I’m not sure about your scores specifically.

    You’d also get interviews at UAdel and Curtin.

    And be eligible to make a UTAS Rural application (no interview, direct entry).

    I know at UTAS being a rural applicant doesn’t lock you into anything, placement-wise. I’m not sure how that differs elsewhere.

    For the case of UNSW, what kind of chance would you say with those numbers of getting a place? I had a rural interview last year with a less than ideal UMAT which I absolutely bombed, and don't really want to risk it again on a non-rural place if I'm already sitting on like a 30% chance...

    Hi guys,

    I'm a non-standard, and I was just talking to a few other non-standards that got offers for UNSW last year and they thought that the uni looks at WAM rather than GPA? Can anyone confirm this? For reference my WAM is 81 and my GPA is 6.08 (not sure which one would be better for me).

    Thanks :)
