Any student who has published a paper will get a priority or a chance ?
I know different unis have different criteria, but what are the general factors that they are considering ?
Are you staff at the university ( many PhD students have started off as Research Associates for a couple of years). Did you get first class honours (that's a given). If your Bachelor degree from Australia ?
The major culling happens with the honours grade. If you did not get first class honours now with the limited number of RTS available even if you get a scholarship you might miss out on this.
