The minimum weighted average mark (WAM) and subject specific requirements refer to University of Melbourne grades and subjects. A Selection Committee will assess the results of subjects that are most closely related to the equivalent major or specialisation in the University of Melbourne curriculum and are the best indicator for success in your chosen Master of Science stream. Adjustments to your final weighted average may be made depending on the accreditation of your university/institution, subject grading/scales and pass marks.
