Getting into Medicine

How do I get into Medicine?

To get into medicine in most countries, you need to satisfy three criteria ie., do well in:

1. your high school/university;

2. a generic skills test and

3. an interview.

Australia is no different. In Australia the three criteria are: ATAR (GPA if at university), UCAT and an interview. In most universities these three criteria are equally weighted.

Because medicine is the ONLY course where the government strictly controls the number of places, the demand is high which is one of the reasons why it is seen as an attractive profession.

The University Admissions page provides details on entry requirements for various universities.
