Yes, but do disadvantage help for medWow rural bonus points is massive, I thought USYD's E12, 99.95 to 99.50 for med and 99.6 to 99.00 for dental med was a big leap. But if you're not rural or have any disadvantages that give you a boost, it's obvious undergrad is very competitive with most of the cutoffs being high up the 99. ends. Postgrad is always an option though, if you maintain a high WAM or GPA idk which one they call it, plus you do exceptional in the GAMSAT, you can still get in. Though I personally think it's really risky to gamble 3 years of your life pursuing a bachelors of science/pre-med courses and hoping you get in through GAMSAT, if you don't have any plans with the bachelors you're doing, unless you're really sure that you're capable.
Also make sure you have a good reason to pursue a course, rather than the prestigious title and money, because else you'll probably end up hating it.
I'm not entirely sure about other unis, but USYD has a scholarship program called E12, where if you're experiencing disadvantages you can apply for it, and for ONE course in USYD, the ATAR requirement is reduced. For instance, the undergrad med course has an indicative ATAR of 99.95 in USYD, with E12 it's a 99.50. Though E12 for med is very competitive and you'll need a great application (they'll ask you stuff like why do you want to pursue this course etc) to get the offer, but realistically speaking, if you're not at least top 3 for everything right now in your cohort, the chances are not in your favour to make it through HSC/ATAR, not saying it's over since most people get in med through postgrad.Yes, but do disadvantage help for med
