    Bachelor of Physiotherapy

    The atar cut off for 2016 for physio at wsu reduced to 99.7 but they removed bonus points from regional area scheme and subject bonus points. I can now only get bonus points from EAS as I go to an disadvantaged school so I will get a couple of bonus points there. However 99.7 is very far-fetched and a reasonable atar for me would be around 94-97 so what atar would I need to get to still get into this course?

    I reckon if you score within that range, you should make it into UWS easily - like most of their other coures (except Med).

    UWS hyper-inflate their ATAR requirements (except med which is pre-determined, before demand)
    If you get 94 you should be fine.
    You can also try for Physio at USyd Cumbo.

    Oh okay..that's a bit of am relief..yeah I'm aiming for usyd and wsu is my 2nd option. There is a link for usyd where they have stats for each course...median atar to get in, %who met the atar cut off..so I was wondering of there was a similar thing for wsu? Also if you don't mind me asking how do you know that an atar around 94 will get me in?

    Re: Bachelor of Physiotherapy

    I know this off-topic. Sincere apologies

    I am really into the Allied Health and Medicine industry as a whole. So I was considering Physiotheraphy as a 2nd option if I don't get into Medicine, so was wondering what made you interested in Physiotherapy in particular? Do you have to be a really fit and sporty-minded person in order to enjoy Physiotherapy?

    What sort of Physio role are you seeking? Like do you want to work for a Sports team, Hospital, private clinic...etc?

    I love learning about human physiology and am really interested in fitness and sports so I think sport physio is the perfect career path for me.

    there is not a similar thing and I doubt there ever will be
    UNSW started that iirc and USyd followed to try and be more "transparent" about their cutoffs

    Some UWS courses would have admissions >20 points below cutoff. So they don't want to advertise that.
    Although, stats released by UAC/SMH (I don't remember) showed that 100% of accepted applicants to the UWS physiotherapy course were below the cutoff.
    Lol


    I don't *know* that 94 will get you in
    But I can say you have a decent shot, because I know people doing physio at UWS with ~92 as their ATAR
    I also know people that transferred from courses with credit averages, which you would easily be able to get at UWS with a 94 ATAR.

    Like, it is ~weird~ to have an ATAR over the cutoff at UWS (except med)
    If you do, you often get a scholarship or something
