Can I call GEMSAS by ‘phone?

June 2, 2011

GEMSAS Operations isn’t able to maintain adequate coverage of a telephone enquiry service this year.  Please ensure your enquiries by email (to info@gemsas.edu.au) are clear and precise so the officers can best assist you by email.

What is ARTS?

June 2, 2011

ARTS is the Automated Results Transfer System that allows academic results to be retrieved directly from participating university systems. This means as soon as results are loaded into a university system,  results can be retrieved and uploaded directly into GEMSAS. It’s both immediate and paper-free and saves you as the applicant the time and expense of ordering and paying for a paper transcript and then sending it to us. From our point of view we have immediate access to the most recent and validated data and can directly upload it electronically rather than having to manually enter subjects and grades.

How does GEMSAS work?

May 30, 2011

GEMSAS allows applicants to list up to six medical schools in the order that they would like to be considered for entry.  They will be considered for their first preference and if they are unsuccessful (based on eligibility or merit) they will then automatically be considered for their second preference and so on,  down to their sixth preference.

For each preference, starting with the applicant’s most preferred course, GEMSAS will use medical school selection rules to determine eligibility and merit for an interview as well as an offer at the medical schools listed. Successful applicants will receive an offer of an interview and later, if warranted, an offer of a place for their highest eligible preference based on merit and the school’s quota. Please note – a maximum of one offer of a place will be made to an applicant, and this may not be at the school where the interview was held.
