I achieved an overall of 70 in the GAMSAT and In this article I’ll be sharing all the GAMSAT preparation materials I used for the exam and give a breakdown of my GAMSAT preparation strategy.
If you are new to my blog my name is Michael and I’m the guy behind dating service perth wa THE UKCAT BLOG, read by over 13,000 students per month during the exam cycle to prepare for the United Kingdom Clinical Aptitude Test (UKCAT). Recently, I’ve been asked by a lot of readers to share the resources I used to prepare for the Graduate Medical School Admissions Test (GAMSAT), so I’ve decided to write this article to not just only share all the GAMSAT preparation materials I used but also give some insight into preparing for the GAMSAT and how I achieved an overall of 70.
The GAMSAT is the admission test required by some graduate medical school programmes to assist in the selection of students to participate in graduate-entry medical programs in Australia, Ireland and the UK. The exam draws on a wide ranging number of skills and subject knowledge naturally aligned to problem-based learning in most medical programmes. It tests basic science concepts as well as general skills in problem solving, critical thinking and writing. Please note: If your degree is in a non-scientific field of study you can still sit the GAMSAT exam and succeed – a science degree is not always a requirement for graduate medicine, in fact some universities encourage applications from candidates who have achieved academic excellence in other fields. However, I do seriously recommend taking extra time to grasp core scientific concepts in biological and physical sciences during your preparation.
COMPLETE LIST OF GAMSAT PREPARATION MATERIALS
The following are the resources I used to prepare for the GAMSAT. I’ve tried to rank them accordingly to “usefulness” and provided links to Amazon and Ebay for you to purchase.
Official ACER GAMSAT Papers (10/10)
I strongly recommend doing one of the ACER papers before your GAMSAT preparation to get a feel of the exam and rough idea of your weakness. Do not practice all the official questions after revision. Instead, attempt one practice test before preparation so you can identify your weakness (your score will most likely be rubbish but do not worry thats part of the process). Take note of topics and question-types you found difficult and use the results to structure your preparation. You can buy this on the official ACER website or get it cheaper on eBay from past candidates.
Des O’neil GAMSAT Question Bank -Complete Set (9/10)
These provide great GAMSAT practice questions for each section Unfortunately, the hard copies are discontinued. Your best bet would be to buy them second-hand. However, if you are lucky you may be able to get PDFs online cheaper. They are the only material I’d recommend other than the official ACER papers for practice questions. This exam really is all about practising rather than revising, which took me a while to get to grips with.
Free – Khan Academy MCAT YouTube Channel (8.5/10)
The Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) and the GAMSAT cross over on some topics making the Khan Academy Youtube channel one of the best materials to prepare for the GAMSAT. You can find videos on core Chemistry, Physics and Biology concepts to help prepare for Section 3 in the exam. Whether you need a quick brush up on a specific concept or have a non-science background, their easy-to-understand videos are a must watch.
Organic Chemistry for dummies by Dr Arthur Winter (8/10)
I used this book in conjunction with my old A level Chemistry books. It is easy-to-understand and explains the basic principles of organic chemistry in simple terms, providing great insight into organic chemistry for Section 3 of the GAMSAT. A must-buy for candidates in the non-scientific field or need a brush up on core chemistry concepts.
If you are from a non-science background, it might be worth also getting the organic chemistry workbook for dummies to supplement.
