Re: GAMSAT Section 3 Preparation

In this post we will cover the best methods for GAMSAT section 3 preparation. First we will go over a quick outline of section 3 of the GAMSAT.

GAMSAT section 3 is the longest section of the exam. It consists of 110 multiple choice answers in which students are given 170 minutes to complete. These 110 questions have 4 options – so A, B, C, and D.

So you may be thinking, what should should I do for GAMSAT section 3 preparation? Well, firstly you should know that section 3 is the ‘science’ section. It is formally called ‘Reasoning in Biological and Physical Sciences’.

GAMSAT Section 3 Preparation
The 4 Science Disciplines

This section consists of 4 different sciences:

  • Biology (40%)
  • Organic Chemistry (20%)
  • General Chemistry (20%)
  • Physics (20%)

The Golden Rule
For GAMSAT Section 3 Preparation

The Golden Rule to remember is that the GAMSAT is not a memorisation test – it is a reasoning test. In other words, ACER (the people who run the GAMSAT) will not directly ask questions that require you to simply recall information. Instead, you will be asked questions that are reasoning based. So you will need to use your knowledge of the four sciences and your reasoning skills to determine the correct answer.

Many students ask…
