Re: Poole PJ, Moriarty HJ, Wearn AM, Wilkinson TJ, Weller JM. Medical student selection in New Zealand: looking to the future. NZMJ 20 November 2009, Vol 122 No 1306; ISSN 1175 8716: http://www.nzma.org.nz/journal/122-1306/3884 andhttp://www.nzma.org.nz/journal/122-1306/3884/content.pdfThe authors apologise for two errors in the section ‘Student numbers and selection practices': (1) The latest increase in medical students occurred in 2008, not 2009. (2) For undergraduates applying to Otago, ranking decisions are based upon GPA and UMAT in a 66:34 weighting, provided the designated academic and UMAT thresholds are met. Graduates must meet the UMAT threshold and, thereafter, ranking is based on GPA alone. In contrast to Auckland, no interview is undertaken.
