    JMP Interview offers 2014

    Apparently the interview system is just a ballot-style system or they send certain types of applicants to the different campuses. As in the interview has no bearing whatsoever on actual enrolment location. Don't worry - my S1 was 67 and I'm at Armidale too when newcastle was my first option.

    JMP Interview offers 2014

    Good luck! I'm pretty sure I can't get in anyway because of my GPA. Ummm 67, 69, 63 I think? S1 definitely was 67 and total was 199, 98th %ile. GPA: 4ish - sydney doesn't use GPA so I don't have confirmation but pretty sure it's too low to get an offer anyway thanks to first year (five bloody...

    JMP GPA and DNF grades

    Yeah if I could redo it all I would have done it so incredibly different. Health issue has since been mostly resolved, and I was always the type of person who excelled in school (scholarship to a private school, etc) so the academics of medicine doesn't worry me too much. A lot of other factors...

    JMP GPA and DNF grades

    Hey guys, So I called UoN the other day and asked if a 4.1 GPA would be sufficient for a completed degree JMP entry and I was told it should be fine (I have an average mark of 63 and hence why USyd doesn't use GPA - a lot of 64s that only count as 4 not 5, ack). I have a BSci from USyd...

    Lower UMAT cutoffs?

    Unfortunately there's nothing - not with undergrad or postgrad. I've looked into it due to certain circumstances and there is zip, zilch, zero special consideration. They're even more cut throat with that rule when it comes to PG. I'd advise using it for uni marks as you've said. Although...

    Haha, I unfortunately re entered the BoS realm that I thought my 18-year-old self had left far behind due to this god forsaken exam and undergrad med applications thanks to a terrible GPA.

    STAT test for pharmacy

    studying the stat test does not ensure you of a higher mark. it is a common english comprehension and maths questions and fairly basic. i did not do one single second of study, didn't even think about it until the day and got in the 99th percentile.

    ACER CSTP scholarship, how does it work?
