Hey guys

I am so disappointed with my GAMSAT scores but still wanna check if there is any chacne to get an interview. By the way, I am an international student.

My scores are:
Section 1 = 55
Section 2 = 40
Section 3 = 77

Total Score was 62.

It's my first GAMSAT. I was so nervous, maybe that's why I stuffed up in section II. Is there any chance that I can get an interview? I know the Section II mark is pretty much hopeless...

Thanks you.


Sorry if these questions are silly.

Sorry to break the news to you but most unis require all three sections to have a minimum of 50 in order to get an interview.
Good luck!

I suppose u could try Flinders and UWA? They seem to consider applicants with scores below 50 in one of the sections.

Sorry to be harsh, but there is ZERO chance of any uni considering you with a section score of 40.

Head down, bum up, and work on your problem area for 2012 Gamsat Mate.....

maintain the rage!

Hi - I disagree with most people's thred's here.
Depending on which uni's you are looking at I believe your overall GAMSAT score of 62 could land you an interview. My advice to you would be to look at what schools weight interviews the most, ie 60/40 and then if you think you could smash the interview then I'd hop right on it! I believe if you have a decent GPA and GAMSAT score, plus good application details your chances are increased - the disappointing thing is that whilst every uni does state a minimum 50 in every section, when they break down your overall mark that 40 will be your downfall. I'd say give it a crack if you have the money and the time, if you have time to resit the GAMSAT then I would say go for it - but you just never know what the competition is like each year until after offers have been made! Chin up, on average people sit the GAMSAT 3-4 times.. Wink

that's a top section 3 mark, what a shame...you could resit again next year and do one of those essay prep courses.

According to Flinders the section II cutoff is 45ish and that's a long way from 40.

"For most Australasian applicants who are not applying to the NT Medical Program or in a special admissions sub-quota, the overall GAMSAT score required for interview has been in the range 56-62% in recent years. It was 61% for 2011. Applicants also needed to achieve scores of at least 50% in Sections I and III and a minimum score of about 45% in Section II."

I suggest you have a think about where you went wrong and work on it. Was it structure, spelling, etc... If you can boost your section I/II scores to around the 60 mark you would be laughing. 77 in section III is savant material so spend the next 9 months working on your english.

Thanks
