GAMSAT Examination

The Graduate Medical Schools Admission Test (GAMSAT) is developed by the Australian Council for Medical Research (ACER) in conjunction with the Consortium of Graduate Medical Schools to assist with the selection of students to graduate entry programmes. GAMSAT is designed to assess the capacity to undertake high level intellectual studies in a demanding course. GAMSAT evaluates the nature and extent of abilities and skills gained through prior experience and learning including the mastery and use of concepts in basic science as well as the acquisition of more general skills in problem-solving, critical thinking and writing. The GAMSAT exam takes place once a year in Ireland.
