    What's you're back-up if you don't get into med?

    WOW nobody picked veterinary sciences?! I know quite a few people who said that was their backup.

    UNSW med cut-off

    And I actually agree with you. =| Personally I dunno, call them up and ask about it. Just being able to speak English in an interview does not mean you have the necessary English skills to be able to cope with higher levels of written articulation.

    MedEntry UMAT Trial Exam 2009 - Indicator of UMAT score?

    Honestly how you do in the medentry exams is not an indication of anything, IMO. It gives you a fair idea of stuff you're shit at but I would take my results with a grain of salt.

    Undergraduate Medicine & Health Sciences Admission Test

    Yeah UMAT is different to the GAMSAT. In the GAMSAT you actually need to know like sciencey stuff.

    Should I consider medicine or just forget it?

    Goddamn don't wear that gothic shit to an interview. Honestly, even though at certain universities they say they won't judge you on what you wear, it's really hard to avoid the personal bias of interviewers. Wear something nice and formal, people do judge you on what you wear and honestly...

    Engagement and the HSC

    Lol honestly can't be that bad. I had a boyfriend during the HSC and I spent a LOT more time with him than time spent studying and I did fiiine!

    I like the current system. Worked for me. :D *end* PS your criteria isn't reasonable, I knew I wanted to do med straight out of high school and wasn't really interested in much else (except vet sci) and I'd be pretty fucking annoyed if I had to do a pre-med course (like the US system) to...

    Postgrad Medicine Entry Advice

    Yeah definitely, the "ease" of entry is just supply VS demand. It's just a matter of how competitive the entry is.

    Year 11 Study Time

    ;) Study smart, not hard. In terms of UAI, I didn't do that well. The only reason I got into my course is 'cause they had additional selection criteria (ie. interview) that I aced. I got 98.5, which is a lot lower than the median UAI for UNSW med but you'll find that quite a few people...

    med advice

    And I agree with Chinaski, the high cutoffs are there ONLY BECAUSE the course is freakishly competitive...like loads of people want to do medicine and that's why they need to filter out people. UAI cutoffs are not indicative of course difficulty, but rather supply VS demand.

    med advice

    That's untrue, I did almost no work through year twelve with pretty mediocre ranks. It wasn't until I totally failed my trials (lol like 40%) that I started putting my foot on the pedal and crammed for my externals. My externals really saved my ass.

    Postgrad Medicine Entry Advice

    Lol surely there are some postgrad med schools that are "harder" to get into than others. I know that with undergrad med there were definitely some schools that were less competitive than others in terms of entry requirements...like if you suck at interviews or something, you'd find most schools...
