About GradReady's GAMSAT ® Preparation Courses


How is GradReady different from other preparatory programs?

We are mainly differentiated by 3 points.

First and foremost is best results, we are extremely data driven - using student performance data to fine tune our practice questions, study content, and teaching style. Over time, we have achieved statistically significant and marked improvements for our students every single year - and we continue to improve and innovate every year. See the results that we have achieved for our students.

Secondly, we offer the best value even when we offer the most value. We consistently reinvest in our internal operational technology to ensure higher efficiency within the GradReady team. These ongoing improvements allow our staff to be more productive every year, allowing us to stand head and shoulder above our competition in the comprehensiveness of tools we offer, response time of study related questions, and effectiveness of our teachings - all the while being best priced. See GradReady vs the rest.

Finally, we offer trailblazing technology that potentiates your efforts. Our suite of online tools and data driven approach allow objective and best practices to be applied to every student online - quickly identifying your weakness and pointing you to the most relevant material. Moreover, our tutors are able to use the same data to amplify their own teaching abilities - achieving the best results for you online and in the classroom. See what we offer in our packages.


How have past GradReady students performed in the GAMSAT® exam?

Does GradReady cover everything that is tested in the GAMSAT® exam?

Our curriculum was written specifically to prepare students for the GAMSAT® exam. The writers included  successful current medical students, former university level lecturers and PhD candidates, with some of our GAMSAT ® tutors being a combination of 2 or even 3 of these. In addition, all tutors have had extensive teaching experience, and were hand-picked for their engaging teaching style and superb ability to explain difficult concepts. The GAMSAT® exam Ready team are closer to the GAMSAT® Exam than any other providers out there and inherently knows what is needed for entry into Australian Medical Schools.


Do I need any preparation material in addition to those provided by GAMSAT® course?

It depends on your familiarity with each subject matter. While most of students find our material to be sufficient, you may find that your fundamentals are particularly weak in a certain area, let it be basic math, biology or reading comprehension. In these cases it is important for you to consult additional material; we do recommend further readings in our Textbook for each subject for those who are struggling.


Will I have to do study outside GAMSAT® course program dates?

Yes. While the course was designed as a comprehensive review for the GAMSAT® exam, the students will need to practise and consolidate knowledge learnt in class. For students who are not strong in the sciences – for you to get the most out of our tutors, we strongly recommend that you go through our online videos thoroughly prior to attending our live classes.


How long does it take to prepare for GAMSAT® course Live classes? 

Optimally, between 50 - 125 hours. As you know, one of the unique aspects of GAMSAT® exam Ready is that during the live classes, we focus on the application of concepts, rather than introducing the concepts to you for the first time. As such, you need to put in a certain amount of work, at your own pace, before coming to class.

There are 25 hours of online videos available. If you already have a fair grasp of concepts covered in the GAMSAT® exam, then we estimate it would take you about 50 hours (2 hours for each hour of video) to work through all the videos, assuming that you pause the videos on occasions to seek clarification through the Textbook/Tutors Online/Internet. If you are not at all familiar with the concepts covered in the GAMSAT® exam however, then we estimate it could take you up to 5 hours to work through each hour of video, resulting in approximately 125 hours of preparation time.

If you are short on time, then we recommend that you look at the Study Guide at the beginning of each subject - where there is a list of videos you absolutely need to watch before each class (exception here is Humanities, for which we recommend you watch all videos before coming to class). The reason why we do not encourage you to just watching the minimum number of videos before each class is that difficult GAMSAT® exam questions often incorporate multiple concepts - meaning that you may not fully appreciate what the tutor has to say, until you have a fuller overall understanding. So even though each class is designed to focus on a few concepts, some of the difficult MCQs covered during a particular class may require understanding of concepts not covered in that particular class.


Is there any prerequisite knowledge required for GAMSAT® exam?

Students will need to demonstrate an adequate command of English and arithmetic skills, which are also required for the GAMSAT® exam. In addition, we highly recommend student who are not strong in the sciences to prepare prior to attending the live courses. You may prepare by accessing our online video. Watching the videos thoroughly will help you to get the most out of our tutors in class.


Are GAMSAT® courses suitable for the Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) format?  

Yes. One of our primary offerings is the InterviewReady course, which is designed specifically to prepare you for the MMIs.

Yes. All of our courses are suitable to use in preparation for the UK GAMSAT® exam; the UK GAMSAT® exam is exactly the same as the normal GAMSAT® exam. The two tests differ in name only.
