    Hello! I'm hoping for PMS in 2012 so I may as well join in!

    I'm 31, a FT 2nd year student (Biomedical Science), ex-administrator, married with 2 young children & currently in Bristol, where I've lived all my life. Hopefully not for too much longer though!

    Anybody else?

    Hi

    Hi all,

    Also a 2012 PMS hopefull! Very excited about registering in just a few days now really. I am 32 years young,married living in Falmouth Cornwall, with two kids, 8 and 10. The studying is not going too badly, trying to cram more and more in now. I seem to be doing quite well with the practice I and II sections, not so well in the science, so foucussing on that now.

    Good luck to all of you, and I'm sure well be chatting loads over the coming few months. Does anyone have a clue where the exam will be held in Bristol, or will they not release that until after registration, hoping to get hotel booked nice and early. Got to start to save the pennies for when I'll be a poor student!!

    Laura

    Hi Laura,

    Last years' GAMSAT in Bristol was held at the Thistle Hotel (Grand Hotel) on Broad street, Bristol City centre. The GAMSAT website says that this doesn't stay the same year-on-year though, so don't make plans yet. They only release the venue (& only to those who have registered) a few weeks before the exam, sorry.

    Good luck with your revision - having finished all my other exams yesterday I'm just about to start on GAMSAT revision!

    Emily.

    Thanks Emily,

    Guess I'll just have wait for a while yet. Handy if it is in a hotel though, as I can book in there. Good luck with your revision,

    Laura

    Hi,
    I have a bunch of revision material for the Gamsat which are really good for covering the correct materials and has practises questions. I found them really useful. I have just finished graduate entry medicine and am about to graduate.
    I have Gamsat Guru course books, DES O,Neills revision Which is good for the tricky science stuff, and notes from a revision course in London which are extensive and have practises questions.
    PM me if you are interested in any of them.

    Hi All!

    I'm a Biomedical Sciences Graduate, and a Special Needs Youth worker. Student debt and a BSc are all I have to my name haha.

    Scared about the GAMSAT later this year. Hopefully some intense summer prep will resolve that!

    Nice to meet you all!

    Priyanka :)

    Hiya Guys and Gals,

    Thought id flare up this conversation a bit and see how people are coming along with applications and (the incredibly) long wait for GAMSAT results.

    Just putting the finishing touches to my UCAS now :-o..... Nerve racking stuff!

    Hello everyone, I've also applied for PMS 2012. I'm a graduate and just got my GAMSAT result through this morning. Overall score was 62 (68, 55, 63) I'm not sure how great my chances are now though....
