Re: Physics For GAMSAT – Topics And Resources

It is essential that students learn the fundamental concepts in Physics as 20% of the questions in Section 3 are Physics-related. Since Section 3 of the exam has double weighting, it is even more important that students learn these fundamental.

We will quickly go over the topics that students need to learn to succeed in GAMSAT Physics.
Note: These topics are covered in our comprehensive physics guide – The Physics Bible!
