GAMSAT Section 3 Strategy

Re: GAMSAT Section 3 Strategy

Before we examine the most effective gamsat section 3 strategy, we will cover a quick outline of this section in the exam.

Okay, so Section 3 of the GAMSAT is the most important section of the three as it is weighted double. This section of the exam tests students knowledge and reasoning ability with 110 multiple choice questions. These multiple choice questions have 4 answer choices (A, B, C, and D) and are based on 4 scientific disciplines. These scientific disciplines are Biology, General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, and Physics.

When considering the most effective gamsat section 3 strategy, we can divide preparation into two different aspects.

  1. Learning the fundamentals of all scientific disciplines
  2. Practicing as many gamsat-like questions as possible

Let’s look at the first aspect. It is important that students learn the basics for all of the sciences. Students are required to learn up to first year University for Biology, Organic Chemistry, and General Chemistry. Students are only required to learn up to year 12 level for physics (or A level for students in the UK). All the syllabus topics for the sciences can be found in this post –

However, we’ve made it easy! Our team have released a series of gamsat books which cover everything you need to know for each of the science subjects. With video links throughout and worked examples, this is the most comprehensive gamsat resource ever created.

Now, let’s look at the second aspect. This is the most important aspect when it comes to having an effective gamsat section 3 strategy. Students need to practice as many gamsat-like practice questions as possible for Section 3 to improve their reasoning ability. Remember, the gamsat is a reasoning test! Students need to use their knowledge of the sciences and apply this to the science-based reasoning questions in the exam.

Our team have released a gamsat practice package which contains over 1000 of the highest quality series of gamsat practice questions.
