    i came across this website while surfing quite randomly..i think it should be made more popular..why not some advertising in the UOM insight newspaper?i think it has the potential and it needs to be dynamic to be successful .

    I have already submitted my application in February. How will i know if i have been accepted or not? Some students have already got a reply from UOM confirming their seat. Please help me.

      Depends on the course you have applied for and your ranking on the list (based on your SC and HSC results). It takes time for the University to reply to all successful applicants. Note that UOM cannot reply to all candidates who have applied, only those who get a seat. Also, sometimes students on the first list may decline the offer which means that the seat is then offered to the next applicant on the reserve lists. The process can thus be long.
