    Can someone tell me how the IB and ATAR conversion works??? And is an IB score of 38-43 (worst to best) enough to get into Biomed or Arts (commerce, business, finance) in Melbourne University??? Eventually I'd like to study Law in postgrad level

    Dude it's definitely enough.

    Besides they do display IB requirements.

    (Current applicant too but for Bachelor of Science)

    On the"Minimum IB scores" they said that a guaranteed entry score for BioMed is 38... but when they say "Guaranteed entry score" does it mean that you are really guaranteed a place, or does it mean entry requirements where you may still be rejected??? If the latter is the case what kind of score do I need to get to really be sure that I'll be taken in??

    Guaranteed entry if you make the score

    The "clearly in-rank" is the guaranteed-entry score you were talking about, and it's the lowest-accepted score from the previous year for that course. It wouldn't be 100% guaranteed, because there might be a lot more applicants with higher scores applying for your course for your year (which would push up the cutoff score as they only have a limited number of places). However, it's still a pretty good indicator of your chances of getting in -- which I think are pretty high.

    Also, I got an IB 43 (pre-remark) and made it into Biomedicine at the University of Melbourne, so that would definitely be enough.
