Re: GAMSAT Sample Questions
Are you looking to get your hands on some GAMSAT Sample Questions? If so, then you have came to the right place.
The AceGAMSAT Team have put together a section 3 mock exam, which contains 55 GAMSAT sample questions. These questions are the closest thing to the real exam!
It is highly recommended that you complete the test under timed conditions are this will allow you to adapt to the conditions in the real exam. Make sure you go through the fully worked solutions if you are unsure about any answers. We will now examine a strategy you can use to increase you GAMSAT score for the multiple choice sections.
The AceGAMSAT Elimination Strategy
Over the years our team has developed a range of strategies that can help you think critically about the question and answer choices in the GAMSAT. These strategies should be used when all else fails so you can eliminate some answer choices and make your best educated guess.
These strategies are obviously used for Section I and Section III of the GAMSAT.
The first step is to make sure you fully understand what the question is asking (by practising GAMSAT sample questions you will continually improve). It may sometimes be easier to rephrase the question into a statement, or a simpler question.
Once you fully understand what the question is asking then you can start eliminating any answer choices that could not possibly be correct. (Note: If you are unsure or any questions when attempting the GAMSAT sample questions, then try this method).
Then begin by re-reading the remaining answers and ask yourself the following questions.
- Does the answer choice respond to the question being asked? If not, eliminate it! Even if it may be a true statement it may not be the answer to the question that is being asked. This is where many students go wrong. They pick an answer because it is true, however it does not answer the question! If it does, however, respond to the question being asked, keep it as an option as it may be correct.
- Do the answer choices contain words like none, all, absolutely, always, or never? The majority of answer choices that contain these words are incorrect. This is because the ideas in the answer choices are usually open to interpretation, and cannot be expressed in such absolute terms as never or always. Instead look for options that use conditional words such as usually, often, rarely, some, or most. This technique alone has helped many of our students dramatically improve their scores.
- Does the answer choice express an extreme view of the information from the passage? This extreme view can either be positive or negative. If so, re-read it carefully to see if it is actually answering the question or if it is just an extreme summary of the information from the passage.
- Does the answer choice use the exact same language as the author in the stimulus/passage, but change the meaning of what is being said? If this is the case, this answer choice is a misleading option and has most likely been put there to trick you into choosing the wrong answer. This answer choice can then be eliminated. If not, keep it as an option as it may still be the correct answer.
Now keep these in mind while you are attempting the GAMSAT sample questions and see if you can quickly cross of any multiple choice answers!
