    Yes it does matter if you put UNCLE as your first or second preference. You stand a higher chance of getting into whicher one you put in first as you get in their 'major round' draw. So I suggest if you don't want to go to UNSW or don't think you'll have a chance i.e. bad UMAT, low UAI to put UNCLE as your first preference before they do the interview selection.

    How do u no that? i thought u had an equal chance of getting an interview at both as they both hav separate applicatoins and only look at that and ure UMAT for 1st round interviews. At NUCLE they dont even look at ure UAI until after ure interview

    They just do, well I was told by someone that they did (this is very similar to what they do at Adelaide Uni with Med & Dent - where they clearly tell you this), and I think it's practically true as I got Umat scores that should have got me an interview but I put UNSW first and I didn't. I'm not 100% sure - call UNCLE Med Admisions - but something to be weary of.

    wow if so...that's a scary prospect and at the same time very devious of UNCLE as it wasn't stated anywhere!

    Dear XXXX

    The position of Newcastle amongst your UAC pereferences will not
    influence the interview process at Newcastle (ie determining
    eligibilirty for interview), it will though influence the allocation
    process when UAC are offering places for courses. That is UAC will
    offer you the highest preference for which you are eligible as such you
    should carefully consider the ordre in which you place your
    preferences.

    Regards

    Tracey

    yeah as i thought- UNCLE doesnt know about nor manage the preferences because that's UAC's job, so in conclusion, it won't matter which uni you list first

    Med

    Pssst.

    The word on the street is that Newcastle might be stopping the med course. People who failed and should have repeated were pushed through, another marking scandal for this uni maybe?

    Come to UNSW everyone, you know you want to.

    There was an article a while ago in the Newcastle Herald that said those running the clinical(?) part of the degree where refusing to continue if the cuts that the uni is making extended to the admin staff in the med faculty, and the degree could not continue wihtout them.
    There was nothing from the uni only student speculation quoted, and even that was limited.
    The concern probably is the result of the uni's debt. It all seemes to be speculation on the journalist's behalf.

    Letter from the VC (newc)

    You and your fellow students have been quite unnecessarily alarmed by material coming out of the School of Medical Practice and Population and health and published in the press. On behalf of the staff, i apologise for this.

    There are no plans to close the medical program - never were and aren't now. Your continuation in the program is guaranteed. We will continue to take students into the medical program each year. We have a very good medical course and we will continue to do so.

    Everyone can take great pride in the medical school's 25 years of acheivement. It will continue to achieve much, including graduation great doctors. Our plans are to enhance your experience at Newcastle not diminish it. I help establish the school -I'm not about to close it!
