Question about sending scores to unis
I am hoping to apply for entry in 2014. I sat the September GAMSAT (2012) and obtained a mediocre score of 65.
I really want to sit it again (September 2013) just to improve my chances.
Am I able to ask ACER to send my existing score along with my UCAS application in October of 2013 and send in my new score only if it's a whole lot better? How does this work exactly?

I'm really not sure why you're beating yourself up over this - 65 is an amazing score and would guarantee you interviews at all of the GAMSAT unis (SGUL cutoff 56; Notts 59 or 64 for those with a 2:2). My score this year was 66 which puts me in the top 5% of those who took the test - unis interview the top 20% normally providing you are over the 50/55 cutoff.
65 is NOT mediocre - it's bloomin' amazing! Definitely in the top 10%; comfortably so. Why waste all that time and money when you're riding a great score? Once you're over the cutoff (which historically is always under 65, usually well under) then the rest rides on interview.
Sorry not to answer your original question - just can't understand why you'd be going for a resit when plenty on here would kill for a 65!!
Good luck with whatever you decide.Third year GEP medical student SGUL

But if I'm not mistaken ALL medical school applicants in Australia have to sit gamsat unlike the UK where only a few unis require it, so obviously the competition is a lot higher in Australia.
