I'll be graduating from university and soon start my Masters once accepted. Each university has different admission criteria and it varies by program. This can all be found online or if you have trouble, you can phone, e-mail or stop by in-person to ask the admission officers. Keep in mind, the information is the minimum, which means you may not be accepted even if you meet the minimum because there are so many others who are far above. From what I know, Griffith University has several campuses and there are quite a few Bachelor degree programs in teaching, so there's no single criteria, it depends what you want to teach. As for your current grades, it's hard to say without knowing what they are, even if you want to give just a small range rather than the actual mark, however, you still have time to improve. Some programs have much higher minimum requirements than others and with luck, you could still slide right in but if your marks are very low (i.e. barely passing), it doesn't matter how great your extracurricular activities are because ultimately it comes down to your marks once you've graduated so you got 2 years ahead to work on.

Then again, I'm in Canada so perhaps Australia doesn't place as high of an emphasis on only marks and more on extracurricular activities.
