Hi guys, I am new here and I was devastated as I thought I was doing very well in S3 - which then could bump up the %ile - but I only got 58 which was really out of my prediction
I got 74 % (165) all above 50, which uni should I apply for.
Do you think there is a chance if I submit for remark?
Thanks guys
Joan

I donít think your UMAT is high enough for any UMAT dependent medical schools, however you can still apply for JCU as they donít look at UMAT and have a look at the provisional medical schools if you are expecting a very high ATAR. I guess there is no harm in applying for a remark however I wouldnít have any expectations of a higher result.

Hey, guys,

Finally got used to my mark and the scolding I got from my dad  :-\ , but I was hoping I still have a chance for some uni. I got a 84% (62/52/60) and am non rural. Which unis would be willing to accept me for if I got an ATAR in the low 99s? Thanks!

84th percentile is a solid mark, particularly since you passed every section. If you get an ATAR into the 99s, you should be good for interviews at Monash, Adelaide and JMP.

Thank you quantumm44! So would you recommend that I take medicine out of my preferences for monash because idk my careers counsellor said to never delete it but considering my low UMAT would I be better off replacing it with another course?
BTW how are you finding med in Adelaide? 

You might as well leave Monash in your preferences. I did even though I knew I was ineligible for an interview just because it doesnít matter at all unless you have another preference you want to put at the bottom of your list.

Med in Adelaide is great. Interesting course, unique vibe and culture to it. Iím honestly glad I moved interstate for uni as itís such a good experience and college is a lot of fun.

I'm a WA school leaver and got UMAT scores of
S1: 55
S2: 60
S3 :61
which is 86 percentile
I've got a predicted ATAR of 99.80.
What are my chances for interview offers (for med) in Adelaide and over east? Thanks.

You should get an Adelaide interview (last year the cut off was 84th percentile) with a solid chance at an offer. You should also get interviews at Monash, UNSW and JMP however they are more difficult as they run interviews for interstate applicants a lot later.

Good chance for Adelaide as Quantum said, but will miss out on JMP (your S1 is less than 58) and WSU unless you are rural. Will miss out on UQ too, but JCU is worth an application! Also definitely apply for Griffith and Flinders as your atar would probs be high enough to get into those without umat or interviews. UNSW is worth a preference spot, but may be unlikely as they have stated a strong score in one section cannot cancel out lower ones in others.


Of course though if you are rural apply everywhere as you would have a decent shot everywhere!

Hi there!
I got 97th percentile (60/56/78) and was wondering what sort of ATAR I would need to get into med at monash if my interview is average.
Thanks!!:)

An ATAR of ~98 will give you a good shot.

You should have a good chance at Monash and Adelaide. Youíll need a very good interview to score a UNSW offer though.

Thank you!

Forgot to mention that I am applying for EAS on the grounds of both medical and difficult circumstances. Assuming my EAS is accepted, how does that impact my offer chances for UNSW?

If your EAS is accepted, it should make a UNSW offer substantially easier, however I have still heard of plenty of people with insane scores getting rejected from UNSW so the interview is paramount, particularly since you are implicitly disadvantaged as an interstate applicant.

Hello, I got a UMAT percentile of 99% (69/65/72) and my predicted ATAR is ~99.3, and am looking to get into Monash

If I do average on the interview, am I guaranteed a place in medicine?

So, is the system in NSW broken??

My daughter got 95 in the UMAT, her predicted ATAR is 99. She will be the DUX of her school. The ATARS arenít even out yet but sheís already been rejected by University of Newcastle and also didnít get an interview from western Sydney University. Itís rather disheartening that she is in the top 5% of all applicants to medicine and canít even get an interview. Just wondering if thereís anything she can do? Is there any recourse or avenue of appeal to the rejection from these Uniís ??

I think Newcastle/JMP is based of section 1 score for interview invites, and I think this year's cut off was ~58 in section 1 for non-rural applicants. You can always try contacting the University's admission department by phone.

Good luck!
