Can confirm all’s quiet for me too. I hear they don’t give that much time between the invites and interviews so this waiting time may be good to get some research/practice in now Also, I’m a non-Jupas MBBS applicant with a masters degree science. Not feeling great about my interview invite odds because I didn’t do chem in high school even though I have competitive university chem grades. HKU advised me to go back and sit the May 2021 GCE or SAT chem exam to have something on paper for high school level. Has anyone met a current student who has gone through an experience like this before?

Why fat chance? Med is very hard but not impossible. Life experience/soft skills that makes you a suitable doctor is worth something if you have the same grades as someone without. Plus, they don’t compare you with the high school applicants and just against other applicants with higher qualifications. I did nursing and science... currently working as an RN and have side gigs in clinical and lab research in junior roles.

I heard they only consider students who graduated with first-class honours or master/PhD, and I just a final year bachelor student. Thus, fat chance for me. :closedeyes:

As long as you can get a first class honour by the end of the academic year, I think you should be fine.

If you maintain an awesome GPA from the undergrad, hopefully not all is lost. From what you know, do you reckon it’s as simple as masters/PHD grades or the quality of the research output? Masters are a dime a dozen and actually easier to achieve to first class honours from bachelors. People serious about research often do a masters by research because they couldn’t achieve 1st honours in undergrad to jump straight to a PHD. Coursework masters are a different case though.
