The GAMSAT Consortium schools have reviewed the calculation of GPAs across the schools and have agreed on a framework and rules around the calculation of a base GPA.  Note that schools often have local variations and these can be found in each school’s entry.

A GPA calculator is available for use on our application page at

* The GEMSAS medical schools and Dentistry and Optometry at the University of Melbourne, have considered options for changing GPA/WAM methodology for this year’s admissions period, recognising the impact of COVID-19 on 2020 study.  As a result a number of schools have made changes, deciding whether or not to include 2020 results in GPA/WAM calculations.  Full details of these changes are detailed in the Admissions guides and Addendum, there are different approaches so read carefully.  The above GPA documents above have NOT been updated with this information.
