The Bachelor of Medicine Joined Medical Program (JMP) considers personal qualities to be just as important and influential to the learning and practice of medicine as academic ability. This is reflected in the admission and selection processes. Selection is based on performance in UCAT, the Multiple Skills Assessment MSA (MMI Interview), and the online Personal Qualities Assessment (PQA). A minimum academic requirement is also required.
The MSA is essentially an MMI style interview, which is made up of eight, eight-minute rotating stations. At each station, the applicant will discuss various scenarios and undertake activities with the assessor.
University of Newcastle Interview (MMI) Assessment Criteria
Applicants are ranked and selected for interview based on the weighted sum of their academic merit score (ATAR or equivalent) and their UCAT ANZ score (out of 3600) in the ratio of 60:40. Please note this course is very competitive, with limited places available. Meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee you an offer of an interview or a place in the course. Only shortlisted applicants will be contacted for an offer of an interview.
Candidates will also be required to complete an online assessment of personal qualities known a the PQA on the same day as their allocated Interview session. The PQA is an online test designed to assess a range of personal qualities that are considered to be important for the study and practise of medicine. View Newcastle Medicine PQA Information.
