I'm planning on doing bachelor of science degree at melbourne uni as a undergraduate degree to get into dentistry at melbourne, but im scared that after doing the 3 years course i dont get into dentristy. What can i do? can i use the bachelor of science degree to do anything else? like get a job or something? or would i have completely wasted 3 years?

If you do well results-wise, I'm sure it is possible to get a job
You could always double major, right, and expand your prospects? Math majors can get jobs in banks

You could also, specialise in another field -eg. Health sciences- and after 4+ years, you can find a job.

The method I am about to describe works for postgrade med, not sure about postgrad dent though.

You can 100% do med at UoM should you get above the cut off score (which is 99 i think?) and are willing to pay a full fee place for postgrad. Dent, idk but all i know is that dentistry has fewer places than med.

What about the Bachelor of Oral Health degree at UoM? That's an undergraduate degree, anyone know anything about it?

I think the course leads you on to work as a dental therapist or hygienist. It is a shorter course and as a therapists or hygienists you can't do some things that a general dental practitioner is allowed to do. A dentist is a doctor and earns more money. The Bachelor of Oral Health doesn't meet the requirements for the Doctor of Dental Surgery. You can choose Bachelor of Biomed/Science or Bachelor of Oral Health. If you actually enjoy dentistry I don't think you would mind either course. If it  is just for the mere fact of being an actual doctor and the shit tonne of money choose the Bachelor of Science. If you get a low ATAR pick bachelor of Oral Health unless you are willing to work your ass off for 3 years, get a high GPA and absolutely destroy the GAMSAT and interviews because graduate med and dentistry is so competitive at UoM. A good thing about the Melbourne Model is that it is such a broad system so there are many different options for graduate studies, you just need to have the certain prerequisite subjects.

Just remember that Melb isn't the only grad dental school - USyd also offers the DMD. Also, if you're thinking medical school, there is UMelb - but don't forget Deakin (which is pretty good!) and Monash Gippsland too - which you don't need prerequisite subjects.

was it? My bad. In that case go for broke. Just find any university you can get into for dentistry.

I know someone who after one year of Science at Melb, got accepted into Dentistry at James Cook Uni in Queensland. Apparently despite not being a big name uni, their program is quite good for that.
The Finnish word pilkunnussija, which translates literally to “comma fucker,” is someone who risks his social wellbeing to annoyingly and persistently point out punctuation errors.

You can 100% do med at UoM should you get above the cut off score (which is 99 i think?) and are willing to pay a full fee place for postgrad. Dent, idk but all i know is that dentistry has fewer places than med.
Even if you get above 99, you still need to maintain a GPA of at least 75% (not as easy as it may sound) and you need to pass the interview, only then can you get a FFP and pay like 200k+ for your course while the CSP kids pay like a quarter of that I think
This also applies for the Doctor of Dental Surgery I believe

If you get 99.90 or above, then you don't need to worry about your GPA, you just need to pass the interview and take the required subjects and bam you get a CSP place.

List of guarantees and conditions:
http://www.futurestudents.unimelb.edu.au/admissions/entry-requirements/guaranteed-entry/guaranteed_entry_pathways_by_course

But yeah depending on what major you take, you'll have plenty of options to fall back on

I'm intending to do a major in maths, so if I decide to go for Medicine or dentistry or whatever, but I can't get in, my maths major will just allow me to do a masters in engineering, commerce, IT, teaching etc or I could continue studying maths at a masters level
ATAR: 99.15

BSc @ UoM
2012-2014
