Applicants must also complete the University Clinical Aptitude Test for Australia and New Zealand (UCAT ANZ). Final ranking for a place is determined by combining scores from the applicant's Year 12 subject results that are used to calculate the ATAR (or equivalent) and their UCAT results.
It is expected that applicants will need to achieve an ATAR of 95 or above (after the addition of any relevant adjustment factors) to be competitive for a place. Ranking for offers of places will be based on a rank combining Year 12 subject results (90%) and a UCAT ANZ-derived score (10%), which will be based on results from five sections of the UCAT ANZ test (Verbal Reasoning, Decision Making, Quantitative Reasoning, Abstract Reasoning and Situational Judgment), with each section equally contributing to the UCAT ANZ-derived score.
This course is only available to school leavers - i.e. applicants who are competing for entry on the basis of performance in either SACE Stage 2 studies, the International Baccalaureate or the interstate/overseas equivalent and do not have an academic record of study at higher education level (including Bachelor degrees from TAFE or RTOs).
An annual subquota is available for applicants from rural and remote areas. To be considered for the rural and remote subquota applicants must apply to SATAC in the normal way.
Applicants must also, within 10 working days after submitting the SATAC application, submit a Statutory Declaration to SATAC which confirms that they have lived in non-metropolitan areas of Australia (Remoteness Classifications RA2 to RA5) for at least 5 consecutive years, or 10 years cumulatively, from birth (i.e. during any period of their life). A Statutory Declaration form can be downloaded here.
Applicants can check their eligibility in accordance with the definition above using the search tool at the Remoteness Area (RA) Locator site. Filter your search using the ASGS Remoteness Areas (2016) layer.
An annual sub-quota of up to 5 places is available for Indigenous applicants. Such applicants are required to apply in the normal way. It is expected that applicants will need to achieve an ATAR of 90 or above (after the addition of eligible bonus points) to be considered a place in this sub-quota.
