for AUSMAT NZ pharmacy,

university of otago is the only uni that offers pharmacy course for international students, right?

let say, if i couldnt manage to get a place in otago, is there any other uni for me to apply?

U cn always buy the books frm the seniors
About the prices, i cnt giv u an exact answer but most seniors will sell their books wif notes and pass-year papers fr all subjects over rm100. No worries

I was quite shocked that jpa is offering medicine course fr students to nz
Fr my year, nobody has secured medicine course in nz and most of them bound to twinning program and others. The main reason would be my seniors who encountered problems in getting admission into uni of auckland for medicine due to the limited places and strict interview. The only choice left is uni of otago. However, the interview of otago oso posed the same prob to them as they hav to get high TER score and pass the interview wif flying colours.
So this year, high expectation is on the way fr those who will study medicine in nz. Life would nt be easy. U hav to strive even harder in AUSMAT to get wonderful results...

thnx for your info!

*i'm taking pharmacy, not medicine

Haha...I post two posts at one time and they merge together. The medicine in nz refers to someome else.
Yes. Uni of otago is the only uni that offers pharm fr international students. In actual fact, jpa has quota of its scholars in uni of otago. U juz hav to pass the interview and score satisfactory TER.
Thr were cases whr seniors did nt get offer letters frm the uni and the last resort was to apply local uni which is twinning in IMU (most common one) or UIA (Uni of Islam Antarabangsa). This is bcoz AUSMAT results cn only be recognised by certain private colleges and uni but nt the local uni

The entry requirement is around TER96 if I'm not mistaken?

Don't be discouraged. The way to do well for SAM is just work smart. Don't push yourself, cause that won't do you too much good.
oh.. thanks ayja. you're an ausmat-ian as well, right?

I did some research on the universities in Australia and notice that the minimum requirement for Biotechnology course in most of the universities is about TER85.
Is that a very high mark to score?
I am a little confused with how AUSMAT's scoring system works.. Anyone mind to shed some light? Thank you =)
