Nottingham university have a minimum 2:2 classification with a masters (I think) and a higher GAMSAT score or a 2:1 and above with a slightly lower GAMSAT score to sort students. Gamsat has been put online to accommodate for the current situation so it's probably going to be the same.

It says 2:2 but obviously you can imagine that your chances of getting in substantially would increase with a 2.1

Does anyone know the higher GAMSAT score that they'd require if you got a 2:2? Unsure if they adapt the cut off after results based on what the whole cohort is averaging or whether it's set like the minimum one is

Hi there I'm applying for Nottingham A101 2021 entry as well as SGUL and Swansea.
I wasn't originally going to but after totally bombing my UCAT and being unable to apply to UCAT unis, I'm sitting the GAMSAT next month to try and give myself some sort of chance this cycle. I'm hoping that my degree in biomed and a bit of cramming can help get me a good enough score to hopefully get an interview.

A bit about me/stats:

- I'm going into my final year of biomed at Northumbria Uni
- I have no A-levels, I only have D*DD in a level 3 health and social care BTEC
- I only have a C in English and maths at GCSE
- Work experience: 18 months as a ward volunteer in my local hospital, 40 hours A&E shadowing and 2 days in a GP practice, as well as a few other bits here and there which are out of the appropriate time length

Heres to everyone doing well this cycle!

Hiya! Looks like we're applying to the same unis in this cycle haha (I've sit got to sit my UCAT later this month though to try my shot at Warwick Uni as well as the other 3)!
You've got lots of good work experience which is great! Hope your GAMSAT prep is going well!

I emailed them about this and no it doesn’t. Also last year I managed to only get 56 overall in my GAMSAT and still had an interview for Nottingham.

Does anyone think that cutoffs with rise this year due to the GAMSAT being online and much shorter in length. I have a 2:1 in Neuroscience, HCA & menta healthcare support work experience and a GAMSAT score of 58 with the Notts calculation. Am I in a good position for interview?

Will be reapplying this year. Hopefully, GAMSAT won’t increase. This’ll be my last chance with Notts, if I get an interview.

I called them a couple of months ago to ask about this and they told me that they don't apply a higher cut off to 2:2 applicants anymore.

Hi, where did you read that the GAMSAT has been shortened?

I'm due to sit it this month in Liverpool. As far as I'm aware it is 70 minutes for S1, 65 minutes for S2 and 150 minutes for S3.

They've shortened the exam due to covid. I sat it for the first time in June, but I'm pretty sure section 1 and 3 used to be 75 and 110 questions before covid. I'm sitting it this time as well but in Sheffield.

Hi, what date are you sitting? I'm on the 1st. They've just been adjusting the format of the exam this year due to covid. The length of the exam is in the Gamsat booklet, I think its 47 questions for s1 and 75 for s3. I'm pretty sure it won't affect cut offs though because the Gamsat marks are balanced across all sittings.
