FROM future doctors to sports scientists, the region’s latest high school graduates opened their computers this week to find out what the future holds. “Disbelief” was the word Tamar Leibenson of the Calrossy Anglican School used to describe when the University Admissions Center (UAC) released its first round of offers based on student ATARs on Wednesday. The Year 12 graduate had applied to study medicine in every state in Australia and received her dream offer from the University of New South Wales (UNSW). “To be honest, I was in disbelief. It was pretty good because I didn’t know if I should expect a first-round bid or a second-round bid,” she said. “I put a lot of effort into the interviews and the University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT). It was good.” Ms Leibenson said just asking for medication was a big commitment. In addition to taking a two-hour computer-based test that assesses a range of mental abilities, students then attend interviews lasting an hour and a half each. “The cutoffs are a bit different for rural students compared to metro students, but overall it’s a pretty competitive and selective course,” she said. She hoped to practice medicine after seeing the positive impact it can have on people’s lives. “How I need to be able to help others and be of service to the community at large is what sparked my interest,” she said. READ ALSO: Thousands of Yeah 12 students have been accepted to college this week, including local sports star Emily Deasey who will study exercise physiology at the University of New England (UNE). The Tamworth High School graduate decided to stay close to home, but received many offers elsewhere. “I also got accepted into exercise physiology at UNSW, which I was offered a scholarship for, which was good to see,” she said. She said growing up playing competitive sports is what sparked her interest in pursuing a career in physio or sports science. “I do netball and state swimming so I had a lot to do with the physios and just wanted to keep involved in the sport,” she said. Universities made 35,811 offers this round, up from 34,700 during the same period last year. Candidates have until midnight on Saturday January 29 to change their preferences for inclusion in the February first round on Thursday February 3. Applications for semester 1 studies are open until Friday, February 4. Our journalists work hard to provide local and up-to-date information. -Date news to the community.
