Journey to becoming a physiotherapist
« on: August 08, 2019, 05:11:42 pm »

Hi Iím in year 10 at the moment and my current goal is to become an undergraduate physiotherapist at UQ University. Provided that I achieve a 97-96 atar, I will be in an extremely competitive position thanks to my eligibility for a 2+ adjustment factor. Iím very excited and I know this wonít be the be all end all, but rather a challenge that I feel motivated  to overcome.
The subjects I am choosing are as follows:
- Maths methods
- Physics
- biology
- English general
- certificate III in sport and recreation
- Japanese

First of all, welcome to AN! I hope you find this journal (and the AN community) really helpful and wish you all the best in your pursuit of the physio degree at UQ. :)

What sorts of extracurriculars and hobbies do you enjoy outside of school? And how do you find your Cert III? (Iím really curious as to what you do in Sport and Recreation.)

Welcome to atarnotes! :)

Love the subjects you're choosing - if you've got any questions about studying science subjects or anything like that please feel free to hit me up :)

It seems like you're taking a really healthy approach to QCE - I can't wait to see how it all pans out for you.

Why physiotherapy?

Best of luck!

Great to have you here, wince3. :) We have some physiotherapy students around, so make sure you ask any questions you have!

How are you finding the transition to the new ATAR system? What's the vibe like at your school?

Thanks Joseph41, at the moment most of the students are backing away from the prospect of getting their dream job because of this new system. On the other hand there are a few students who are selecting the suicide six subjects. However I am  very exciting to see how this system all plays out and whether the students who chose the suicide six can rise to the challenge.

Thanks angel wings. The certificate III course I will be undertaking is part of the football excellence program at my school. Not only is it a hobby that I am passionate about, but also a sport that I find real enjoyment in (I also hope that itís relatively easy). I am pretty sure that it has units on anatomy and biomechanics which would be relevant background information for studying a course in physiotherapy. Additionally, the subject involves officiating as a referee which is fortunately my part time job (plus officiating is good pay for a part time job and helps me with my understanding of the game).

Really excited to read your updates! :D

I'm in my 3rd year of physio at the moment, so it's always exciting to see people who want to be the next generation of physiotherapists!
