Why do some 99.95 ATAR students choose Provisional entry for medicine?

There are broadly two types of medical courses for school leavers: “Direct Entry” (for example at Curtin, Adelaide, Monash, WSU, Newcastle, UNSW, and JCU) and ‘Provisional entry’ (for example at UWA, Flinders, UniMelb, USyd, UQ, Griffith and Bond). ‘Provisional entry’ is also called ‘guaranteed entry’ or ‘assured entry’ or ‘Chancellor's scholar pathway’ and even misleadingly as ‘direct entry’ (by UWA). There are many disadvantages of provisional entry programs which are discussed in other blogs on this site. They are generally designed to benefit the university, while the direct entry programs are far better for you. So why do some high ATAR...

English and UCAT

Why doing well in English is essential for gaining entry into medicine and succeeding in your medical course and career. Some students love it. Others hate it: Reading books, writing essays and analysing articles where the content matter is highly subjective and there is no definitive ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ answer. English is the polar opposite of many subjects favoured by maths and science minded students because essay questions require a highly critical and subjective thinking style in order to write high scoring responses. However, like it or not, all students looking to study medicine or other popular health science courses, need to do well in...

Doesn’t the UCAT do a poor job of predicting medical school grades?

UCAT-bashers have long liked to claim that the UCAT isn’t valuable to universities because it doesn’t predict university grades very well. They miss two important points: first, smart university admissions officers don’t want it to predict grades, and second, it correlates very well with something more important than grades—real success in academic fields like medicine or in life ingeneral. Predicting grades is a wild-goose chase because grades are not objectively distrib­uted: almost any teacher/professor can give out grades any way he or she wishes.
