Deferral terms

Candidates that decide they do not wish to sit the test in September 2022 may defer their registration to either the March 2023 or September 2023 sitting of GAMSAT. A list of available test centres for the following September and March sittings will be provided. Please note that candidates may defer the test date for the GAMSAT test sitting once only. No changes to the test sitting can be made once the deferral request has been submitted. To defer their registration, candidates must log in to their account and select the ‘Manage’ option and then 'Apply for deferral' option on their registration. Deferral requests must be completed by no later than Friday 29 July 2022 at 1pm British Summer Time (BST) OR 10pm Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST).

Only on rare occasions, where there are extenuating circumstances, a late deferral may be granted. This will be at ACER's discretion. Candidates who wish to apply for a late deferral due to extenuating circumstances should contact the GAMSAT Office no later than the test date. All deferrals will incur an administration fee of $65 (including GST) in Australia, €40 in Ireland or £40 in the UK. Deferred candidates will continue to have access to the preparation materials included in the GAMSAT registration for 12 months from the date the registration was completed.

In accordance with the Refund Terms, except as otherwise permitted at law (where law is not capable of being excluded) candidates who have deferred participation in the GAMSAT cannot then apply for a refund after the refund request deadline as registered candidates for GAMSAT have a place reserved for them in a particular siting of GAMSAT. Therefore, a refund is not applicable as a refund may only be given where there is a defect with the service provided, not where you change your mind due to personal circumstances.
