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...

Chancellor's Scholarships

Medical schools love to attract two groups of students. They pull out the red carpet for (a) rural students and (b) very high ATAR students. Why? The real reason (not the one stated on their websites) is that the universities benefit directly and indirectly. If they recruit rural students, universities get significantly more funding from the government than they would if they recruit city students. If they recruit very high ATAR students, they benefit in many ways. First, their university ranking will go up: and universities will do anything to improve their ranking. There is tremendous competition between universities to attract...

University rankings and prestige: how much do they really matter for studying medicine?

Is studying medicine at Monash more prestigious than Melbourne? Is studying medicine at USyd more prestigious than UNSW? And in the end, does it really matter? University rankings and prestige: how much do they matter for studying medicine? Prestige, prestige, prestige. It’s a battle cry often heard echoing from the halls of the oldest universities and repeated with an unwavering insistence of certain parents that: ‘my son will only obtain his the degree from The University of…’ (Well, we don’t need to name names here..) When selecting the university with the right medicine course for you, we would suggest that there...

Ranking of Australian/New Zealand Medical and Dental Schools

Just as you would go to Wiki on the internet to obtain unbiased information on a topic, you have come to the right place to obtain unbiased information regarding medical school rankings in Australia and New Zealand.   The reputation and prestige of the University is not as important in Australia in general, as in the USA. In the USA there is a hierarchy of universities with Ivy League Universities such as Harvard and Yale, being miles ahead of the mediocre universities. In Australia however, there is little standard deviation in terms of quality, standard and prestige of the 40 or so...

Is the median ATAR of medical students at USyd/UniMelb higher than at UNSW/Monash?

No, in fact, it is far lower. People assume that because the University of Sydney and the University of Melbourne have a certain limited number of places for their “guaranteed entry” scheme (for which the minimum ATAR required is 99.90 or 99.95) the median ATAR of medical students at such universities must be very high. This is a myth and is completely untrue. The University of Sydney and the University of Melbourne have about 300+ places each in their graduate entry programs and only about 10% of places are from the guaranteed entry stream. The rest of the places are generally...

The Bachelor of Medicine/Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) course at the University of Western Sydney (UWS) is the newest addition to NSW's undergraduate medical courses, opening its doors for the first time in 2007.
