Hi everyone,

My GPA for my Undergraduate Nursing degree is not high enough to meet the minimum required for most uni's. Does anyone know what sought of further study would be counted towards a GPA. e.g could I do a Masters in nursing(coursework) and have that course counted towards my GPA???
I have heard that only a research degree would be able to be counted towards the GPA??

Because Notre Dame in WA has such looooooooooooooow expectations, and accepts anyone, right?

Gamsattutor, your prejudice is unbecoming.

no they are a good uni

i was just stating the fact that they are easy to get into and they look at you as a whole person and what you can offer

and the people that i know there are nice and are enjoying the course

g you really need anger management classes !

not everyone can go to sydney uni !

Think again my friend.

UNDF had 500 applicants this year, and the cut offs were quite high.... funnily enough, they had 3 times the applicants of UWA!

UWA is also about to dump undergrad Medicine, and increase their grad program numbers.....

Maybe the traditional opinions need rethinking?

less than 5?

I'd go back and do a masters, or some post graduate work.

Unless you have something really special going on, then I don't think ANY university will consider you seriously with such a low GPA

Sorry mate. good luck.

I agree with that. You should try that in order to make it easy for you. Best of luck.
