Discussion in 'UMAT' started by LMG!, Aug 20, 2018.
As A1 pointed out, the "another pool" confuses the issue. If you don't mind me asking: Where did you graduate from i.e HSC? Are you an Australian PR or Citizen? I am not sure if JMP takes any overseas HSC candidates but hopefully, UNSW does. Not sure about others. Good luck as yo ahve been assessed equivalent to UAC (QAS) 99.95 but I doubt this is same as ATAR 99.95!
I posted a few weeks ago but I only asked about Curtin.
I am wondering if I can expect anything from my applications to WSU, UNSW, and JMP.
I did put applications in but I am now thinking I'm probably out of the running for all three. Tried to work this out myself (but their school websites give you the 50/50/50 spiel, don't tell you much else, except I'm pretty certain my ATAR will disqualify me from one) Really appreciate any input on whether I can expect anything at all. Cheers for being so helpful

Hi lillysayse, unfortunately you’re likely to miss out on interviews at all three on the basis of your UMAT result for JMP and WSU, and a combo of your UMAT and ATAR for UNSW.
Ok thanks LMG! Here's hoping for Curtin!
Except UTas the unis don't concern themselves with determining applicants' ATAR/GPA , they leave this task to the TACs. Their websites including JMP's all say ATAR or equivalent. If UAC assesses it as equiv to 99.95 I believe that's what it will be to all NSW unis.
Ok. Did UAC mention that you would be considered under overseas quota? I am afraid you will not be as you are an Australian Citizen. Internationals may have less stringent ATARequiv requirements I assume. With such high scores you could get into a BS/MD program in a reputable uni there. Just thinking.

Question/s: What are my chances of getting an interview at Monash. I know I'm not likely to get a first round offer at Monash but what is my chance of getting a second or third round offer?
What are the "other bonuses" you've selected yes for? Is it EAS?
I looked on the Monash website, they said they award it according to severity. I would say my situation is considered to be more serious. One of my teachers passed away suddenly from a heart attack during the year.
Hi, just a general question: for UQ, what are the cut-offs for entry? And if you do meet these cut-offs, are you guaranteed a place offer?
I'm sorry to hear that. There's no way of knowing how severe Monash would rate that, but it's better to err on the side of caution and go with the most conservative outcome.
The academic cut-off is OP1 or ATAR 99.00 I believe. This can be achieved with the addition of subject and/or rurality bonuses, too.
UMAT isn’t a cutoff, necessarily, and changes very slightly every year. Presumably it drops to a point based on the results of the applicants, and not to a pre-determined level. UQ publish the lowest scores annually (after, not before, entry invites are released) so you’d be easily able to access the successful scores for 2018 entry to give you a guide.
So say for example that I get an ATAR of 99 and my current UMAT is 189 with my S1 at 67, do you think I would be guaranteed a place offer at UQ?
As mentioned, the UMAT score requirements are not predetermined (or, if they are, they’re certainly not released to the public). I can’t guarantee you anything. The best you can do is check last year’s UMAT requirements, which will give you a guide, and probably some reassurance, but not a guarantee.
You can feel pretty confident (albeit not certain) of a CSP offer with that UMAT score based on past cutoffs, however it’s important to note that you’ll be gaining a place in provisional entry, not the MD directly. You need to maintain a GPA of 5 (a credit average ) in the undergraduate degree you choose to gain entry to the MD - while this is certainly achievable, it’s by no means a guarantee of a place in medicine and will still require some effort in your degree.
I agree. Sorry to hear about the passing of one of the teachers during the year. I was left in the dark and not considered from any university for EAS when my close relative passed away just one week before the HSC exams. I do not know what is the level of severity that is attributed to Fanily circumstances or to you that can be considered under this category. I just wanted to give an example but each case is different and who looks at it. Keep your fingers crossed. Good luck.
