GAMSAT result

You will be notified via email when results are available through your online account. You can only access your Statement of Results online and are advised to save and print a copy of the Statement of Results for your records. Statement of Results are accessible for two years in your online account. Statements of Results include your date of birth and name used at the time the test was taken. Replacement Statements of Results will not be provided to accommodate a subsequent change of name.

No hard copies of the Statement of Results will be sent to candidates. The universities will verify the results used for applications with ACER.

Percentiles

When you receive your GAMSAT results you will also receive a chart which will allow you to convert your score into a percentile figure. This tells you how many other candidates scored at or below your level. For example, in 2005 a score of 67 was equivalent to a percentile rank of 90. This means that you did as well or better than 90% of the other candidates, and only 10% did better than you.

The percentile figure is important only in that some of the medical schools seem to set the pass mark for each year so that they interview the same percentage of candidates from year to year, e.g. they want to interview the top 25%

GAMSAT score

You will receive a score for each of the three sections, together with an overall GAMSAT score. The overall score is a weighted average of the three section scores.

Each of the four GAMSAT scores is expressed on a scale of 0 to 100. These are not percentage marks. The overall GAMSAT score is calculated using the following formula:

Overall Score = (1 × Section I + 1 × Section II + 2 × Section III) ÷ 4
