    Could you upload the March one as well? My score puts me in the 80th percentile roughly... I hope that's just enough! I'm looking for the 2015 percentile everywhere but can't find it to compare cut offs to percentiles!

    I've got the 2014 if that'll help? Save me grabbing it, a 61 was equivalent of the 80th percentile.

    Any chance you know the gamsat cutoffs for any of the unis for the last few years?

    Last years cut offs (stolen from this thread
    http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=3022525)

    Notts - Overall 60/65 (2.1+ (or 2.2 w/ masters/phd) and 2.2). Breakdown of S2 55 and either S1 or S3 at 55 and the other at 50. Remember there are two ways to calculate scores for Notts

    Plymouth - Overall 64. S1 51, S2 52, S3 60

    SGUL - Overall 60/65 (2.1+ (or 2.2 w/ masters/phd) and 2.2). With a minimum of 50 in each section. It is unclear at the moment whether SGUL are using both methods of scoring, or just the original science biased version

    Exeter - Overall 60, no breakdown provided

    Ah beautiful, thank you! Didn't even realise Exeter/Plymouth offered Grad, unless those are just for access to the 5 year course.

    I've just emailed Swansea, but with a score of 60, if UKCAT didn't go well next year I think Notts/Swansea/Liverpool are options, although I will resit.

    Hopefully though, it won't go like that and I'll get in through interviews this years haha.

    Results are out, just woke up and checked my emails!!

    Oh God, I got 60 as my overall average... that is literally nightmarishly close to cut offs I'm terrified... all I want is Notts!! 57, 69, 55 overall. Not bad for first attempt but it's too damn close if Notts cut off is 61 like a few years ago I might cry 😢😢

    Congratulations dude, holy ****, have they just given everyone a score of 60?! My first go too, score of 60 too!

    61, 68, 55! I am stupidly happy about the section 3 score, I thought it was soooooo much worse!

    Best of luck to everyone!

    What's great is you're literally smack on the border of most unis for it! If you don't come from a science background then congrats!

    Yeah graduates who apply to the Exeter and Plymouth 5 year courses have to take GAMSAT- they don't do a 4 year course

    No chance with a 48 overall right?
    Sorry, I don't think so Most of the unis want at least 50 in each section, with an average that's usually above 55. Maybe have another go in March and see what you get? Or apply to UKCAT unis?

    Congratulations! Well I've just spent the last twenty minutes with my nose touching the screen micro-comparing the 2015 and 14 curves to the September one. Last year cut offs of 60 were around 77th percentile whereas this year it's pretty much bang on 80th percentile. I'm hoping that means the cut off stays as 60 or even drops to 59 for Notts/George's.

    My actual score was 60.33 and I've heard that they round up regardless of whether it's above .5 or not (contrary to our basic math knowledge). I'm going to email Sarb at Notts but can anyone confirm if this is true??

    If that's true it'd be ideal. I'm on 60.25 haha.

    Uh oh- you're gonna regret that :P I have so many questions! Do you know how we find out the cut-offs, when that's likely to be (like.... days, weeks or months), and how long after GAMSAt results were published did you receive interview invitations? Thanks!

    Gamsat was fairly quick for some and long for others, I remember Swansea and SGUL were fast. Liverpool was horrid and took forever.

    You don't usually find out the exact GAMSAT without request (from what I can remember- I've literally just emailed everywhere to find out if they have an average low score for 2018)
    Although some do announce them.

    Think SGUL/Swans were around 2 weeks, but Liverpool took well into December.
    What did you have btw if you don't mind me asking?

    Thanks!! I'm feeling super impatient- I know that my GAMSAT scores were good enough but am worried about the rest of my application, really! Just want this all to be over with :P I got 75 overall (70, 72, 79), but got a 2.2 at undergrad (have a merit at masters as well..... we'll see :/)

    That's a monstrously good score and you should certainly get interviews depending on where you applied since you have a masters to account for your 2:2 UG! Well done!

    Oh decent then! I only ended up revising for GAMSAT 2 days before the exam because I was committed to the UKCAT, can hardly complain with 60!

    The masters should push you into the 2:1 category for most unis so you won't even need the higher GAMSAT score, basically guaranteed interviews as I've never seen a requirement above 63.
