Starting this thread as it looks like we don't have one this year for Sydney--anyone else applying here?

Also I did have a question, don't know if anyone would be able to help out. In the international admissions guide it says this:
Offers of places are made on the basis of merit, as indicated by applicants’ final rankings.

Applicants will be ranked on the basis of admissions test results. This will generate a single ranked list of applicants.

Offers will be made in sequence commencing with the applicant with the highest ranked score. Should it arise that applicants are ranked equally, the University reserves the right to use an additional selection tool, such as an interview or Situational Judgement Test (SJT). The University will give these applicants due notice of any additional requirements. If further separation is required, the applicants' GPA at the time of application may be used, at the discretion of the University.
That seems to imply that interviews aren't always required, but last year it looks like everyone who got in got an interview. Did something change since last year, or do they use interviews much more often than their policy implies?

I am wondering this as well. Does anyone happen to know?

Hey guys! Not sure if this has been answered as of yet, but I'm applying this cycle for USyd and while they won't be using interviews this cycle for applications, they're making the application 100% based on DAT scores. So they're making one list using DAT scores, and if applicants have an exact tie that needs a tie-breaker, they can either use an interview a judgment test.

Only if necessary after THAT, aka the interview used to break ties, doesn't help them land on a decision, they can look at applicant GPA to further break the tie. Assuming all works out and your DAT is strong enough, you basically skip an interview and get an offer right away!
