Students who commenced in the Bachelor of Biomedical Science (including double degrees) from 2014, will be eligible to apply via this pathway. 

Applications for 2019 via this pathway are closed.  For 2020 entry, Bachelor of Biomedical Science students (including those undertaking double degrees) at Monash who have a Weighted Average Mark (WAM) of 70 or above in the middle of their final year may be offered the opportunity to undertake an interview and Situational Judgement Test (SJT) for the Graduate Entry Medicine program based on a ranking system. 

To be eligible to be considered via the pathway, applicants must be on track to successfully course complete the Bachelor of Biomedical Science (or double degree) by the end of their application year.  

IMPORTANT:  Applicants will be required to attend a Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) and Situational Judgement Test (SJT) to be considered for an offer.

Offers will be made based on the ranking of academic performance and interview/aptitude test after final results have been received and assessed.
