The GAMSAT ® exam is a comprehensive examination of all your reasoning and problem solving skills, and likely covers more content than you have ever been tested on before in a single occasion. This makes it essential to have a GAMSAT ® Study Syllabus that covers all the areas you need to prepare for, and also to organise your study in a way that will allow you to learn all this in an efficient manner. Each section tests fundamentally different content and skills, meaning a one-size-fits-all approach is unlikely to be successful. At GradReady, we’re here to help by providing you with a free GAMSAT ® Study Guide that summarises all the key information you need to know to ace the GAMSAT ® exam.

Time management and studying efficiently is a core skill to doing well in the GAMSAT ® . Getting into a steady routine is vital in managing your preparation, reducing stress, and improving performance. For example, planning ahead gives you more direction over your study, so that you always know whether you are on track, and what you need to study when you sit down at your desk for the day. To help you with this, we have created a free GAMSAT ® Study Schedule which provides a framework and some key checkpoints along your study journey.
The GAMSAT ® exam tests many different areas, so it is important to have a thorough knowledge of what exactly you will be assessed on. While this GAMSAT ® Study checklist gives you an insight into the GAMSAT ® exam, it is only an overview of the process.

In the context of the GAMSAT ® exam, this is the case because:
When learning new content, focus on asking questions, putting information in context, and summarising information. Then, revisit the material periodically and test yourself regularly.

You most likely want to get into a study program that leads into a healthcare field that you are passionate about. Having this goal somewhere (and tangible reminders of it) to refer back to in tough times will help keep you on track.
