    Medicine Interview Training - UNSW

    Hello there! I’m a UNSW med student offering interview training as well as help with filling in the UNSW application form. In my honest opinion, the interview is quintessential and unfortunately, the most underrated aspect of getting into medicine. I feel strongly about the interview because...

    at what age do you typically graduate med school

    This is all based on info I found from here/UNSW info day/seminars but: 1. ~30 (assuming one gets in first go, also an approximation since some specialties require less/more studying) - what I saw from UNSW info day at least 2. 5-7 for uni studying, then around 4 if not more for specialty...

    Generic Essay Help

    Definitely agree with the methods provided above to help save you time. I think that deciding between 1 or 2 generics is dependent on how confident you are with tackling essay questions. I wasn't very confident with english and so I did 2 because I was afraid I couldn't mould it to suit the...

    UNSW Guaranteed Entry

If you've surpassed the cutoff for your first preference you'll get an offer for it when main round offers are on. For your friend, if he doesnt get...

    Med Interview Invitations 2015/16

    When you book your WSU interview they direct you to a page detailing your info e.g. time and date. At the bottom it says that the page is your confirmation. I didn't get an email for WSU but perhaps your friend was mistaken with UNSW (which did send one)?

    UMAT 2015 Discussion Thread

    Assuming UWS's calculation method is S1+S2+(0.5xS3) what mark (out of the 150) would be the cut off approximately? Mixed feelings since I'm happy with my overall UMAT, but it was dragged up mainly by S3 (to make up for S2)...So if they exclude that.....
