Admission to the BArts/MD is on the basis of a secondary school leaving qualification, such as the NSW Higher School Certificate (including national and international equivalents) leading to the award of an Australian Tertiary Admission Ranking (ATAR) or equivalent.
The selection process is highly competitive and the selection criteria include:
1. academic merit ATAR (or equivalent) cut-off expected to be 99.95 for domestic applicants and a similarly high threshold for international applicants; and

If your results are not available in time to be considered for the 2018 intake (ie prior to the issue of invitations to the January 2018 assessment), you may be eligible to apply for the 2019 intake.
