Your GAMSAT scores from the current September 2016 test will automatically be passed by UCAS to the universities: you do not need to notify UCAS that you are sitting the test.

If you wish to use a current score from any other GAMSAT test to apply, please provide your full name, date of birth, UCAS Personal ID number and GAMSAT Registration ID number to gamsat@ucas.ac.uk by the 25 October 2016. Please ensure the subject line of the email indicates ‘Previous GAMSAT score’. UCAS will then verify your scores with ACER before forwarding on to the universities.

If you have multiple current test results you may ask for more than one set of scores to be included. You should bear in mind that Admissions Committees may set thresholds for the section scores as well as for overall scores and will use the best set of scores when assessing you application.
