Medical Interview Cutoffs
When preparing for the upcoming application season, we need to know exactly what the undergraduate medicine universities require. Only upon appreciating the entry requirements, can we begin to plan our final year of high school with transparency and confidence, knowing exactly what we need in order to land ourselves an interview and show universities why we are fit to study medicine at their institution.
The first thing we need to consider is the prerequisite high school subjects we must complete in order to gain entry. These subjects are specifically asked from applicants in order to ensure there is a smooth transition into the rigorous demands of the complex and demanding degree. Choosing subjects requires knowing exactly what UCAT and ATAR scores universities are seeking. A high level of student performance is required in order for universities to be confident in their admitted applications, i.e. assured that they have the mental endurance and stamina to undergo rigorous and face paced learning in an ever changing field. After applying to chosen universities, our attention then turns to interviews. The medical interviews at different universities are conducted in opposing ways, and knowing whether it will be an MMI or panel interview is paramount for preparation. Interviews are there to assess non-academic qualities that are of utmost importance in ensuring students have the emotional intelligence to cope with high pressure, and make quick decisions that have lasting impacts on the lives of vulnerable patients. Finally, it is always worth knowing what our competition will be. It is here we turn to the number of places available at the given university’s medical program, as well as logistics such as the duration of the degree, what prospects lie ahead of us thereafter, and how rural applicants fit within this complex puzzle of medicine entry.
