Changes to the Bachelor of Medicine Joint Medical Program (JMP) application process
Direct University applications for the Bachelor of Medicine – Joint Medical Program (JMP) will open in mid August and there have been some important changes to the application process.
The JMP has changed the way it uses Undergraduate Medicine and Health Sciences Admission Test (UMAT) scores in the selection process. In 2012, candidates will be required to satisfy a minimum threshold of 50 on each of the three UMAT sub sections. Candidates who satisfy this requirement will be ranked for interview on the basis of the score they obtained in UMAT Section 1.
All students must complete the three step process outlined on our website to be eligible for a place. Interviews will be allocated to the highest ranked candidates and will be held from 26 November to 6 December, 2012.
There have also been changes to the system used to classify students as Rural or Remote. The JMP is now using the Australian Standard Geographical Classification – Remoteness Areas (ASGC-RA) classification system to identify students who are eligible for the Rural/Remote Admissions Scheme (RRAS) and/or the Rural/Remote Bonus Scheme.
