How To Study For GAMSAT Section 3
Let’s take a look at exactly how to study for GAMSAT section 3. Many of our students have scored 70+ in section 3 of the exam by following our simple two step strategy.
When studying for section 3 of the GAMSAT, it is important to separate your study into two different stages. These are:
- Learn all the required knowledge.
- Practice and apply the required knowledge to gamsat-like practice questions.
Let’s take a closer look at each stage.
Stage 1 involves learning all of the required content for biology, organic chemistry, general chemistry, and physics. Students need to learn up to first year university level for biology, general chemistry, and organic chemistry, and need to learn up to year 12 level (or A level) for physics.
Stage 2 involves practising as many gamsat-like practice questions as possible. As the saying goes ‘practice makes perfect’, and this couldn’t be more true than for the GAMSAT. It is crucial that students work through a variety of questions which are just like the actual exam as this will allow them to develop their reasoning ability.
Remember: The GAMSAT is not a knowledge test, it is a reasoning test! Students must apply their knowledge, reasoning skills, and problem solving skills to determine the correct multiple choice answer (A, B, C, or D).
It is also important to practice these questions under timed conditions as this will allow students to adapt to the pace they must attempt the questions in the real exam. Students have 170 minutes to complete 110 multiple choice questions in section 3. This equates to approximately 1.5 minutes per question.
Students could technically learn the science content from their University textbooks. However, this is extremely time consuming as there are thousand of pages of irrelevant content in these massive textbooks. We have created an entire Home GAMSAT Preparation Course which covers everything you need to know for all of the sciences in a condensed series of study guides.
Our Home GAMSAT Preparation Course also contains 2000+ GAMSAT practice questions, which is more than enough questions to perfect your skills for both Section 1 and Section 3 of the exam. We also recommend that students attempt all questions in the 4 x ACER booklets under timed conditions.
