Would my UKCAT options be affected by a bad GAMSAT score?
I'm a graduate applicant with a non-science background, intending to apply for the first time this year. The plan was to sit the UKCAT and apply to a few uni's which accept non-science graduates.
I was initially reluctant to sit the GAMSAT, given my lack of scientific knowledge at this stage. However, now I'm thinking it might be worth a try, even if I don't score well, at least so that I can get a clearer idea of the exam format and not be so put off by it if I have to re-apply next year. And who knows, I might end up doing better than I expect.
My question is this: If I sit the GAMSAT and get a really bad score, will this score be made available to the universities which only ask for UKCAT and not GAMSAT? I don't want to jeopardise my chances with the UKCAT universities if I fail miserably at the GAMSAT. Or are the GAMSAT results only sent to those universities for which it applies?
This is my first post and I'm new to the whole application process, so any feedback would be greatly appreciated!!

Hi mrob. Im pretty 99% sure that your GAMSAT score has NO affect on how you are percieved by any UKCAT university you apply to. If a university does not require the GAMSAT as part of an entry requirement, then it is of no concern to them. GAMSAT results only matter to GAMSAT universities.
Anyway, good luck and I wish you the best!!
