    I distinctly remember (though I could be wrong :p ) having to preference unbonded and bonded as my number 1/2 course choices in my application.

    UTas seems to be very confusing this year thats for sure haha

    Yeah, that was the case for 2017 entry, and then it wasn't for 2018 entry. And now they're back to it for 2019 entry? Oh my! Thank you!

    Can anyone help Cocoa out?

    From my application, it is the same this year- there is a question in the application which asks whether you would consider a BMP to which you reply yes or no. That's all

    Yes i had that as well, but after that stage when you are ordering your courses they appear as two separate courses bonded and unbonded which can then be rearranged in terms of preference right?

    No I just had the MBBS (M3N) as the one and only preference. There was no separate bonded/unbonded. Are you sure/ can you check again?

    Mine doesn't, even when I try and search for it. Strange...
    Did it appear when you searched it up?

    Yeah when I search up the course both appear as options I can select.

    A mystery indeed hahaha :p

    Hopefully I am not the only one with this problem otherwise I may have a stuffed application :(
    Do you mind if I ask if you are rural and which state your from, not that it will help solve this but maybe if your Tasmanian?

    I'm sure it will be fine! UTas seems to be really inconsistent in how they do things so I wouldn't be surprised if they had different application forms or something.

    Re questions: No I'm not rural and I'm a highschool leaver from NSW
    Hope that helps!

    Oh, if there was actually a separate course selection for an unbonded spot, I think I may have missed it as I have only selected the bonded one. My thought was that they would consider an unbonded spot for you if your scores were satisfactory.

    Don't know if this will make a difference but you can still add the unbonded course into your preferences.

    As Nkap said add the unbonded course if you can then contact UTas to see if they would upgrade your offer. You need to explain it was a mistake you didn't include it plus an applicant with lower ATAR & UMAT has been offered unbonded.

    The email subject was "University of Tasmania Online Application 2019: Offer Received". To view the letter of offer, you must log in to the UTAS application site.

    In reply to Nkap 's message: I'm a rural (RA2 Victorian) high-school-leaver and I was able to apply for both bonded and unbonded medicine at UTas. I applied before the 30th September, and received a conditional (95+) rural offer for unbonded med on 9th November.

    My UMAT was 66/53/51 = 170 = 80th

    All the best for everyone with their application(s? :p)
