What Is a Good GAMSAT Score?

what is a good GAMSAT score

A  good GAMSAT score may be good enough for admittance to one particular medical school but below the cutoff of another. GAMSAT scores are interchangeable and can be used to apply to any university that requires the GAMSAT. You may sit GAMSAT UK (September) or GAMSAT Ireland (March) to apply to any medical programme that requires this exam – irrespective of the country (i.e. Ireland, Australia or the UK). You must ensure that your scores have not expired if you are using a score from a previous sitting of the GAMSAT (i.e. GAMSAT scores cannot be more than two years old). Otherwise, you choose the GAMSAT score that you wish to submit for consideration for admissions.

An average GAMSAT score is often around 56-58 and a really good GAMSAT score is over 65. Technically, the highest possible GAMSAT score is 100; however, only 0.1% of students score over 80. When you hear a student make the claim “I scored 100”, they are usually rounding their percentile rank as opposed to providing the scaled score.

CORE PERCENTILE SCORE
56-58 50th average
61-63 75th usually good*
73 or higher 98th very high
