Appeals and re-checks

Unless otherwise required by law or as expressly provided herein, ACER will not entertain any challenges of or requests or demands to review GAMSAT test results or any determination by it that any misconduct has occurred or in relation to any consequences imposed by ACER following a determination that misconduct has occurred. Nor is it possible to give special consideration for impaired performance on the day of the test caused by illness or other unexpected personal situations.

Any complaints relating to the test venue or physical discomfort suffered should be reported immediately to the supervisor on the day, and in writing to the GAMSAT Office within seven days of the test administration.

Candidates are advised that GAMSAT results are released only after careful calculation and extensive checking and errors in scoring are highly unlikely.

However, following receipt of the GAMSAT Statement of Results, candidates may apply for a re-check of their answer sheets for Section I and Section III, if they believe an error may have been made. A re-check involves individual rescoring of the answer sheets. The resulting scores will then be compared with the computer-generated scores to check that there has been no error in calculating or collating marks.

Requests for re-checks must be made through the online account by the given deadline. A fee is payable for this service. Payment is by credit card only. In the unlikely case of a scoring error being found, the re-check fee will be refunded and the candidate and the universities using GAMSAT will be notified.

All re-checks will be processed after the deadline and candidates will be notified of the outcome by the given date.
