    Last year it was 2 months to the day of the exam in Sept (so theoretically 17th Nov - Mon), and I got the email around 5.30am.

    St George's released their interviews on that afternoon
    ...
    I was quite impressed by that. They're pretty efficient in most respects, almost clinical.

    They announced the cut off, so much the same thing. If you consider that they still need to know the scores of people who applied and take a proportion appropriately to be able to interview those they want, that still takes a fair bit of organisation and more than I'd have expected in a morning.

    I agree. Their administration team really is excellent.

    They have already assessed the degree grades etc, so all they need to do is rank you that morning. Then they let you know if you've met the cut off score and that they will email you soon to sort out a date for interview (they give you the dates to email back your preferences).

    It takes a few days to sort that bit out - but at least you know it you met the cut off quite quickly.

    Do you know where we go to find out the different unis cut offs? So did George's actually send out emails for interviews on the same day or just the cut ofF?

    Of course, there's no guarantees it will be that quick this year! But here is hoping!

    Good luck to all!

    Hello everyone,

    I have updated the first post and also included an FAQ section for your information. However, I would really appreciate any feedback and additions/alterations as I would like this thread to have been written by everyone - collating all our combined efforts. Hopefully applicants can then use it as a "one-stop shop" for getting information on the application process.

    MiloMilo.

    Do you guys think they're still using both methods to rank candidates scores?
    As in i + ii + iii/3?

    Everyone tells me they do, but I've never seen it confirmed anywhere by George's.

    Does it get you over the cut-off line if weighted equally?

    In that case, I'd email Micki Regan to ask. I've found her to be very helpful.

    Yep looks like I'm out from Georges too. Notts and (potentially) Swansea though are where I should hopefully be getting an interview. :-)

    Just in case anyone did want to know, it seems that St George's do use both methods to calculate the cut off scores!

    So you got the email saying you've made the cut-off? Good work...

    Congratulations on those who have survived the day and the numerous cut-off scores we have been hit with today. It must have been a turbulent day for everyone, and if you have missed out this year then do not be disheartened - as I have previously mentioned on another thread, another year of waiting is little compared to a forty year medical career!

    I will be updating the front page shortly. I imagine St George's won't take too long to release an email suggesting we have met both the GAMSAT cut-off and the minimum degree requirements. Then it'll be a few weeks I would suggest until a firm date for your interview is sent out.
