Maths for DVM graduate package?
« on: August 05, 2020, 10:28:03 am »

Iíve been thinking about doing the Bachelor of Science + Doctor of Vet. Medicine graduate package...however I havenít done math methods, but Iím confident I can get a high enough ATAR to get a full fee place at least. Apparently I can study a calculus and Probability Online course, which is the equivalent to maths methods 3&4. Iím hoping that I can do this for the DVM. Is that possible? Does this package mean Iíll be guaranteed a place into the DVM provided I get a good WAM?

Thanks :)

Hey! Hope this reply isn't too late.

My understanding is that if you fulfil the maths prereq (either 25 raw in methods or successful completion of calc & prob online) and satisfy the other requirements, then yes you will be guaranteed a place.

I would suggest contacting Unimelb's FVAS just to be sure, though.

The graduate package will guarantee you a place as long as your WAM in year 1 and 2 is above 70. You must also enrol in the correct major and specialisation (animal heatlh and disease, specialising in veterinary bioscience), and fulfil any additional prereqs (eg. physics if you didn't do physics in VCE).

Let me know if you have any questions! I'm only in my first year of BSci/DVM but will try my best to answer :))

(ETA: forgot to mention that they recently changed the selection process to also include a situational judgement test for 2021 entry onwards.)
