I stumbled upon your profile and have a few questions. I will be studying BMedSc at Usyd starting next year and was wondering wether your experience of transferring to MBBS in UWS midway was worth it? Are you repeating med in UWS from the first year (so 5 years in total?)? Was it hard to transfer midway? How is the MBBS program in UWS?
I'm screwing up the second semester as well so dropping my studies now would be good if uac actually did only take into account my atar but i'm not sure if they would. What do you think i should do? I really want to move to UNSW but as of right now, i'm not sure i'll be able. Please help me. It would be greatly appreciated.
I was wondering what would you say is the best mark to get for UMAT in terms of the whole 6 students thing. & does your GPA matter that much?
Lastly, say i get UMAT tutoring for about 10 weeks by someone who got 99 percentile and 100 percentile (she sits for UMAT every year, yeah its crazy) Do you think that would be beneficial? A response ASAP would be awesome thank you
Hey Riproot, I just enrolled in medicine at UWS and I was wondering if you could suggest any useful resources to look into, whether you believed the bridging courses offered were really useful or otherwise, and whether you were interested in tutoring for first year med?
...I don't even remember asking about this hahaha.
But eh...already got UNSW optom. UWS science is too risky. I'd rather have optom as a back up than have UWS science as a back up, because let's be real even if you kill your GPA it pretty much all comes down to UMAT.
I've read/heard some stuff from you (not a stalker) and your achievements are quite admirable and inspirational.
Do you mind if I ask you Questions?
I want to study medicine, I failed to make it through undergrad (ATAR was mid 97s ) and UMAT was terrible. Basically, I'm thinking of doing science/engineering at USYD. I don't mind engineering or maths, I like that stuff. I wanna know if this is a good pathway to graduate medicine. I'm also thinking of "Biomolecular and Chemical" at USYD as i heard it is not so competitive.
Is this true? Is it easy to get a high gpa in chem eng at usyd?
About 8 students for UWS interviews. I go out of my way to ensure my students get the best preparation. I invest time past what they would expect because it is something I thoroughly enjoy. I am not a tutoring college and I don't like my students spending more time and money than what they need. So far I've only had one student where I've said after 1 session they were ready for the interview. He had work, leadership and a great deal of teamwork experiences.
