Structure

Total Estimated Hours of Self Learning: 150 - 250 hours
Type 1: No Science or GAMSAT ® Background
15 - 20 hours/week

Our courses comprehensively cover all the specific content and background you need to know for the GAMSAT ® exam, from MCQ Strategies and Exam Tips to required knowledge for Section 1 to 3 - No matter what your background, you can get yourself ready for the GAMSAT ® exam. Nevertheless, with little to no experience with the content or format, you’ll need to dedicate some more time to familiarising yourself with the science components of the exam and learning the best strategies to answering GAMSAT ® MCQs under pressure. Our courses are aimed at making sure that you lay the right foundations and then subsequently guide you in how best to apply the content that you’ve learnt when tackling MCQs and GAMSAT ® Section 2 Essays.

Check out our free GAMSAT ® Study Guide to get an idea of how to breakdown your preparation week by week, whether you're starting your preparation 3 months or 2 months out.

Type 2: Basic Science Background
10-16 hours/week

You’ve got a basic background in the science - Maybe you did first year university level biology and chemistry, but there’s still areas that you need to cover. This might mean spending time revising certain physics or biology topics but you’re not starting from scratch. With this basic background, you can afford to spend some more time on Sections 1 and 2 of the GAMSAT ® and improve your essay writing. We make sure that you’ve laid the right foundations in learning the content, then more importantly we focus on how to apply that content and use it to guide your approach to answering MCQs and writing essays.

Our GAMSAT ® Study guide includes a study guide with a breakdown of how someone with a science background should spend their time on a weekly basis when starting their preparation 3 or 2 months away from the GAMSAT ® .

Type 3: Previous GAMSAT ® Experience and Strong Science Background
5 - 12 hours/week

Maybe you’ve sat the GAMSAT ® before and you’re familiar with the content and format but you’re sitting it again because you’d like to improve your score or maybe you just come from a very strong science background. Perhaps you missed out on some areas you needed to revise or maybe you need to improve the way you approach MCQs.

With our GAMSAT ® courses, you can revise all the content to make sure you’re on top of everything you need to know and focus on getting as much practice as you can with our intelligent MCQ Banks and GAMSAT ® Practice Exams , as well as regular marked essays. Since you’re already largely on top of the required knowledge we can hone in and focus on improving your GAMSAT ® Exam strategy and applying your knowledge of the content through an MCQ strategy.

To learn more about how to organise your preparation, sign up for our free 175 page GAMSAT ® Study Guide which contains key excerpts from our 1200+ pg GAMSAT ® Textbook , including a detailed breakdown of the different content you need to cover for each Section and a 14 pg Essay Writing Guide.
