    Hey, since you are doing the course, I was wondering do you know if you get 65% or 75% and they don't let you dont let you on to the optometry course, like your friends got rejected, would you say that's because of them not meeting the grade boundaries?
    Like I don't understand why they would advertise if as an almost sure way of doing optometry and than reject people :/
    Also and most importantly, is it a really hard course, like is getting 65% or 75% extremely hard to do?

    From what I know you certainly do get into first year with atleast 65% and possibly second with 75% depending on if there is space. Also one of my relatives did the diploma a some years back and said it was not too difficult so hopefully shouldn't be too hard getting into optom.
