These just came in the mail...
You obtained the following results in the STAT Multiple Choice:
Verbal STAT Score: 197                Percentile 99.9
Quantitative STAT Score: 190        Percentile 99.9
Overall STAT Score: 194               Percentile 99.9
I think this means I will get into Mid! Obviously won't know for sure until Jan, but I'm feeling more confident now original.gif
Now I need to finalise my preferences - should I go with Newcastle, UTS or the new course at UWS Parramatta? Anyone studying with these unis?
I'd love some advice, particularly from other BMidders...

Congratulations. I am not up there, but personally, I would stay away from a new degree as there are often a lot of things that need ironing out in a new degree- things come up that planning just didn't pick etc.  When I did my first degree (early childhood education) I was the first year of a new course we were meant to get primary education to year 3- but they never put the prac in, so all in all, we got the same qualification as the previous years courses, but they did theirs in 3 years and ours took 4, and we had to do an extra year to qualify for Primary, so it would have been 5 years. So yes, if the other courses have been operating for at least a year, I would go with those over a new course personally.

I'm at Newcastle, as a nursing student

The midwifery and nursing classes have just finished the second year of a new structure. You will sit in nursing lectures but then have your own tutorial group which you extend onto midwifery branches rather then general nursing. (Hope that makes sense)

Well done! I'm biased but I would apply for BMid at UTS. The course has been running there for around 8 years and has an exceptional faculty attached to it. I did the Grad Dip. in Midwifery there and felt that my training was world class. I feel extremely lucky that I to chose that uni for my training.
