Test takers will receive email notification when their results become available through their online account. Test takers are advised to save and print a copy of the Statement of Results for their records. Statement of Results are accessible for two years in the test takers online account.
No hard copies of the Statement of Results will be sent to test takers. The universities will verify the results used for applications with ACER.
Test takers will receive a score for each of the three sections, together with an overall GAMSAT score. The overall score will be a weighted average of the three section scores.
Each of the four GAMSAT scores will be expressed on a scale of 0 to 100. These are not percentage marks.
The overall GAMSAT score will be calculated using the following formula:
Overall Score = (1 x Section I + 1 x Section II + 2 x Section III) ÷ 4
Note: Overall scores are calculated by ACER to several decimal places and then rounded. Overall scores are calculated before the rounding of section scores. It is not possible for test takers to replicate this process.
To assist test takers in evaluating their test performance their scores will be accompanied by a chart showing an approximate percentile ranking for their overall score. This will give test takers an indication of how well they performed against other test takers in the same GAMSAT sitting. The universities will consider the section and overall scores, not the percentile ranking.
The universities will set their own cut-off scores from year to year. These are the minimum scores acceptable for consideration for entry to the graduate-entry programs. The schools may also choose to use the scores in other ways. Please see the universities' websites for further information.
Scores are scaled by ACER to make them directly comparable from test to test.
Test takers will not be provided with any additional information on scores or the scoring process. All information remains the property of GAMSAT and no right of inspection will be deemed to be vested in a test taker.
