    I went to one earlier this year (May or sometime around then) and absolutely loved it too. My #1 choice for entry!

    I think cut off and above is what it is, at least I assume so.

    So for example last year was 64 for 2:2, 64+ would be fine, 63 and less would not. But I can't say for certain.

    I found S1 harder than in practise, but so it seems like a lot of others did too. Felt S2 was strong for me and feel happier with my S3 then I expected to.

    I hope everyone gets the results they need!

    ye i get you. i found S3 a lot harder, and a lot of threads ive read people found S3 really tough. So maybe youre in look then! S2 felt ok but its hard to guess a score cos its like subjective.

    I have updated the first post with an FAQ section, and made additions to the Updates section too.

    I would like the thread to be written by applicants for applicants, so please let me know if there are any changes you would like to make.

    Any one else have a mini heart attack when the email came through from Nottingham 10 minutes ago with the cut off scores on them? How did everyone do in the GAMSAT in the end?

    Hey guys. I remember someone posting the previous years GAMSAT cuts off for Notts, not just last years but i can’t for the life of me find it again. Does anyone have this info as I’m keen to see how much the cutoffs have changed over the years. I have a score of 60 and I’m just wondering if there is a chance that the cutoff could increase this year. Cheers

    Email that just came through said it is being set at 61 for anyone with a 2.1 Bsc/undergraduate masters equivalent and 66 for 2.2.

    There has been a few who have said they have not received the email yet which is a bit strange. :/

    Do you have any other options left? Only takes one interview and offer so don't abandon hope yet!

    No email from this side yet either

    Have you calculated both ways Nug? Notts also use the alternative method & so do SGUL?

    I have an interview at Newcastle and still waiting to hear back from Kings and Warwick but Notts was my first choice. I had honestly thought I didnt have a chance post GAMSAT. But when I got my results this morning, hope was cruelly restored only to be shattered a few hours later

    Might be worth waiting Nug (sorry to be a bit stalkerish) but equally weighted you have a 60.67 - might want to see if they round that up

    Email has finally turned up sent at 9.29 and received just now so I guess their server is struggling to keep up with demand:

    Dear Applicant

    The GAMSAT scores for 2015 have been set at 61 for applicants with a 2:1 honours degree or above (including Masters or above)and 66 for applicants with a 2:2 honours degree. You will also need to meet the section cut off scores; a minimum of 55 in section 2, 55 in section 1 or 3 and 50 in the remaining section.

    Please note we are experiencing high call volume and we ask you do not contact the office at this time.

    Kind Regards

    Sounds like a stupid question but my overall is 61, does that mean I'm being considered or not?

    Thanks!
