Second Chance GAMSAT Exam Retry

ACER press release and GAMSAT re-sit

by , 29 April, 2016


As a result of a misprint in some GAMSAT® Exam question booklets in Sydney (Canterbury) and a timing issue in Perth (Undercroft), ACER is offering affected students the option to re-sit the GAMSAT® Exam on 11 April 2015.

If you were directly affected by these issues, the important things to note are:

  • You should have been contacted directly by ACER.  If you have not been contacted, send ACER an email immediately to confirm what your options are.
  • You will be offered the option to re-sit the GAMSAT ® Exam (using a different paper) on 11 April 2015 at no extra cost (referred to as the ‘Alternative Test’).  If you elect to sit the Alternative Test, your Alternative Test score will be used for admission, and your 21 March 2015 paper will not be scored.
  • If you do not elect to sit the Alternative Test, your 21 March 2015 paper will be scored, but the affected Section I and Section III questions will be removed from the scoring of the paper.

If you were not directly affected by these issues:

  • Your 21 March 2015 paper will be scored, but the affected Section I and Section III questions will be removed from the scoring of the paper.

The scores of the 21 March 2015 test (with all affected questions removed) and the Alternative Test will be equated using the same process that ACER uses to standardise test scores from year to year (and thus allow candidates to use the same GAMSAT® Exam score for admission two years in a row).
