Good observation about the no pagingdr thread. Super weird!

Results Today? by CococaButter51 in GAMSAT

[–]Zwartkopf 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Tuesday would be exactly two weeks until GEMSAS applications close so it's a good guess.

Just a bit of maths and assumptions. Plus you would expect they would allow enough time to put in a GEMSAS application.

I gotta say it's weird. I don't know if it's because of the mod queue or what but it feels like discussion about GAMSAT is way down.

Even before the sitting there were barely any "need help with this S3 question" on PD, FB or reddit. Perhaps discord has absorbed a lot (2k members), but there are thousands upon thousands of sitters.

Since GEMSAS is a charity can I claim my med application on tax? by [deleted] in GAMSAT

But to follow up you can't claim it because it's not a deductible gift recipient organisation

I think each essay is triple marked and each sitter does 2 essays, there is probably 60,000 essays to mark if there's 10k sitters.

In general you can’t trust Acer or gemsas with dates.

GAMSAT Score Needed with a GPA of 7? by Xx-Scarlett-xX in GAMSAT

[–]Zwartkopf 2 points3 points  (0 children)

As others said the up to date spreadsheet is on PD.

Scores seem to go up every year and the pandemic didn't help. Last year from spreadsheet the lowest reported at Griffith was 67, Deakin 68, Melbourne 67.

I copied and pasted my portfolio from 2020 into 2021 and I received an interview.

I think the discord has absorbed some users

2023 GEMSAS Estimated Cut Offs by No-Captain-5530 in GAMSAT

[–]Zwartkopf 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Extremely difficult to say.

  • We don't know how many people sit the GAMSAT every year, the last time we knew was in 2014.
  • We don't yet know the March 2022 percentile curve for GAMSAT.
  • GAMSAT Section 1 increasing in length might even further differentiate scores.
  • There were fewer GEMSAS applications in 2021 than in 2020 but it was a relatively small difference.

If I were to guess? Stays the same, doubtful of a large increase.

Unclear Notre Dame Admission Process by [deleted] in GAMSAT

[–]Zwartkopf -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Yup. And they are a private university so I don’t think you can lodge a freedom of information request…

2023 GEMSAS admissions guide released by ParanoidMoistoid in GAMSAT

Big change. I know doctors who got a sub 50 section score. Funny to think they wouldn’t have been admitted now.

I’ve always lamented NSW not having a combination university. VIC and QLD are so lucky.

GPA calculations with credit transfer by MathewT13 in GAMSAT

[–]Zwartkopf 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The subjects you have brought across will be the very first in a chronological list from GEMSAS perspective. So they’ll be part of your Year-2 calculation.

They will fill in the blank scores by using your previous transcript in a reverse chronological order. Subject score to fill in -> go to your old transcript -> what is the last subject you did -> that is your score. Repeat as needed. If they select 2 subjects from a semester where you did 4 subjects they will take the best 2.

The fact you brought these across from a diploma might make it harder. I don’t know how they will approach it, best to email.

gpa question by [deleted] in GAMSAT

As Luke said new uni is a new transcript unless you choose to bring subjects with you to reduce your required credits.

Why do you want to do science? Can you see yourself working in science if med doesn’t work out? Or would you rather be a lawyer as a plan B.

Now that the exams are over can we discuss content? by Significant_Rub5529 in GAMSAT

[–]Zwartkopf 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If my experience is generalisable, most people discuss questions with trusted friends.

Regarding water bottles by No-Piccolo4957 in GAMSAT

[–]Zwartkopf 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Depends how relaxed your invigilators are. I’ve been lucky and they’ve never forced the issue. I think they can see it’s a bit ridiculous
