I think Nottingham has a limit on the number of times you can apply and go for interview right? (Not sure), but does St. George's have a similar policy?

Wondering why the difference in how gamsat scores are calculated. The spreadsheet entries for both SGUL and Nottingham divide score by 3 whereas other uni's weight section 3 into equation with overall lower score - so is this then the score they consider? Anyone shed light on this?

Nottingham and George’s weigh all sections equally so you get a 1+1+1 weighting. Whereas the GAMSAT does it 1+1+2 where the science section is worth half the total score. They’ll use both methods to calculate a score and take whichever is higher. I guess it’s to put more emphasis on the essay and reasoning sections.

It seemed like super high scores (65+) started getting offers last Fri so I believe they were starting from the top (previous poster) and we reached 59 today, fingers crossed for us!

I believe in SGUL and Notts have in their FAQ that's how they calculate - I know certainly for Notts they either take 3 sections/3 or do the double weighting for section 3 and take the higher of the two.

Evening to ya'll
Scored 69 on GAMSAT, let's just say section 3 really took it out of me
Tbh it probably is like other unis and they're just sending interviews in batches, probably unreflective of the application quality; last year these dates were when they were sent out
any tips for section 3 revision?

S3 was my lowest with 64, I have plenty of scientfic background in all 3 sciences, plus studied for about half a year on all before hand and to be frank with you, they don't help. Best advice imho is get used to multi-layered data analysis and problem solving, skim reading, all you really need science wise is basic concepts to understand it. It's fair enough to compensate with non-scientific applicants who may be just as good a doctor in the future

I’m a biomed grad with literally no knowledge about physics and forgotten most organic chemistry. Actual scientific knowledge doesn’t help that much, I would say about 20% of your focus for section 3 should be on that, it just makes the context of the questions easier to understand when you have the background. I spent most of my time practicing questions from different sources but mostly Des O’Neil and ozimed papers. Feel free to PM for free resources.

I had emailed both emails and also phoned yesterday to find out my username and password to access the portal. I was redirected to email another email and had done so yesterday, but I still have not received a reply about the password. Is anyone else in the same boat? A little worried
