Hi guys.... so glad i bumped into this page I wanna know what do they most consider at the GEMP is the WAPT or previous academic perfomance.
Your academic performance over the last two years of study of your completed degree is the most important factor in the selection decision. If you have a 3-year Bachelor's degree then it is the average of your 2nd and 3rd year of study. If you have a 4-year Honours degree (or equivalent) then it is the average of your 3rd and 4th years of study.
All the other criteria, including the WAPT, are considered minimum requirements. In other words: you need to meet the English and Mathematics requirements, you must have completed the first year university Science requirement subjects (Physics, Chemistry and Biology), and you must demonstrate sufficient knowledge of Anatomy, Physiology and Molecular Medicine by passing the WAPT. But your WAPT mark does not influence your chances of being accepted. Everyone who meets the minimum requirements (including passing the WAPT) gets ranked based on their academic results, and places are offered to the top ranked applicants.
The competition is tough but if it is your dream, you can do it. I wrote and passed the WAPT last year - it was a lot of work to cover but entirely possible. Just remember to balance your preparation for the WAPT with your academic studies (if you are still completing your degree). Ensuring you get the best possible academic results in your degree studies is the best thing you can do to improve your chances.
Hope this helps. All the best.
