Those applying to the MD-PhD programme will need to register and sit for the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) or Graduate Australian Medical School Admissions Test (GAMSAT).
The MCAT is a standardized test administered by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) for prospective students seeking to study medicine in medical schools in the United States and Canada.
Duke-NUS accepts test scores taken within the last four years. You may nominate which results you want us to consider if more than one set of test results is valid. Individual section scores from different tests cannot be mixed.
Details about MCAT, including registration dates, location and dates of tests and preparation guidelines are available on the official MCAT website.
The GAMSAT is a requirement for Graduate Medical programmes in the UK, Ireland and Australia. It is developed by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) in conjunction with the Consortium of Graduate Medical Schools.
Please note that the GAMSAT results are valid for two years. You may nominate which year's results you want considered if more than one set of test results are valid. Individual section scores from tests in different years cannot be mixed. Applications, information and sample questions for GAMSAT are available on the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) website.
You do not need to have your MCAT/GAMSAT results before registering for an application account. Be sure to provide us with your AAMC ID or GAMSAT ID on your application, and notify us via email with your results as soon as they are available.
- For MCAT results, please release the scores to Duke-NUS via the MCAT Thx online system
