Free GAMSAT Events and Seminars

by , 01 March, 2018


Are you planning on sitting the GAMSAT® exam and not sure how to prepare? Are you confused about medical school admissions?

GradReady holds several free seminars and events dedicated to the complex world of medical school admissions throughout the year. These seminars are a must-see for anyone applying to study medicine next year or contemplating sitting the GAMSAT® exam in the coming years. The speaker at all the sessions will be a GradReady GAMSAT® tutor who has personally sat the GAMSAT® and most importantly, someone who has been in your shoes. In addition, more often than not, these tutors will also be medical students themselves. 

We hold these events at University Campuses throughout Australia - Check below to see what events we’re running at your university!

GradReady is an education technology company aimed at making learning more effective and engaging. GradReady has helped over 6000 students prepare for the GAMSAT® exam since 2010. Our students have improved by an average of 24 Percentile points and 90%+ have achieved medical school admissions. To learn more about GradReady, click here: GradReady GAMSAT Preparation Courses.

While all our events and workshops are free, they often reach capacity very quickly. For this reason, it’s important to book a ticket to any event you wish to attend. To find booking information and event details visit our Facebook Page!

We run several different events throughout the year:

 

Semester One:

 

Medical School Admissions Seminar

 

This seminar highlights the admissions milestones and the GEMSAS admissions process (including preferencing and portfolios) and canvasses the various admissions criteria for graduate medical schools across Australia. You’ll have the opportunity to discuss the practical impacts of studying interstate and ask all your burning questions about the long year ahead.

 

Semester Two:

 

GAMSAT® Essay Writing Seminar

 

This seminar will help you get a head start on acing Section 2 of the GAMSAT® Exam. Essay writing skills generally take time to develop, which means starting your preparation early is key to success. The speaker at the session will both have had extensive teaching experience in teaching GAMSAT® exam essay writing

The speaker will teach you how to “find the theme”, which will allow you to respond to the stimuli effectively. To combat the immense time pressure of the GAMSAT® exam, you will also be taught how to plan an essay structure in a short timeframe. Then we will cover the 4 steps to writing a good essay. To cap it off, you will be shown a few tips on how to utilize your existing knowledge to generate engaging and targeted essay content.

 

Chat to a Med Student Seminar

 

At this seminar, you will have the chance to speak with medical students and find out what studying medicine is really like!

Choosing to be a doctor is a big commitment. At GradReady, we understand that not everyone has the opportunity to get a firsthand account of what it is like to embark on this journey. We will happily talk about whether medical school was what we expected, what the doctors tell us about their experiences, what are some of the challenges we faced, and anything at all on your mind.

 

Throughout the Year:

 

Regular Tutorials

 

This is a brand-new initiative that we’ve introduced for 2018! GradReady will be running a series of free, small, interactive tutorials at different universities around Australia. Each tutorial will be capped at 25 students in line with our philosophy of encouraging an interactive learning environment.

The tutorials will be run fortnightly and rotate between different aspects and sections of the GAMSAT throughout the year and will run multiple times to make sure that you have multiple opportunities to attend.

The 4 tutorials that we run will cover:

  • GAMSAT® Humanities

  • GAMSAT® Biology

  • GAMSAT® Chemistry

  • GAMSAT® Physics

The classes will cover how to prepare for each specific section, tips and tricks for the exam and even give you the opportunity to work through some practice questions – Best of all, it’s completely free! Our tutors will spend time actually going through how to prepare for these specific sections, sharing their knowledge and personal experience. The different tutorials allow us to really focus on one specific section and topic, instead of cramming everything into the one session.

See below to check if we’re running these tutorials at your specific university and get details on how to book a spot. Remember, the tutorial numbers are capped at 25 students so get in quick before spots run out! We’ll run the tutorials multiple times throughout the year so if you do miss out, make sure you snap up a spot for the next session!
