Step 2 - QTAC Application

Step 3 - Multiple Mini Interview

  • Applicants will be shortlisted to participate in Multiple Mini Interviews (MMI) based on UCAT ANZ results.

  • Please note: The minimum UCAT ANZ score the University requires will vary each year, determined by the performance of all applicants competing for a place in the Pathway to Medicine course. Therefore, the UCAT cut-off score cannot be determined in advance.

What to expect at an MMI

Shortlisted applicants will be invited to participate in the MMI. MMIs are designed to assess your non-academic qualities and provide you with opportunities to demonstrate skills and qualities such as verbal communication, adaptability, and empathy.

The MMIs involve a circuit of interview stations. At each interview station, shortlisted applicants will respond to a scenario with a number of questions.

Applicants will move from one station to the next, with short breaks between each station. While there will be multiple applicants attending the MMIs, each applicant is interviewed on a one-on-one basis at each station.

MMIs will take place in Rockhampton and Bundaberg.
