Learn how to study for GAMSAT with the Essentials Course
The GAMSAT Essentials Course is a pre-medical subject designed for candidates at the very beginning of their GAMSAT journey. The course orientates candidates to the ideal methods of preparation for the exam. Frequently, candidates demonstrate a strong work ethic yet fail to perform at a high level in their exam. As a result, the METC Institute developed the GAMSAT Essentials Course to teach students how to study for GAMSAT.
Aims of the GAMSAT Essentials Course
The overall aim of the course is to provide GAMSAT candidates with insights into how to prepare for GAMSAT, and to maximise/orient student efforts. Firstly, candidates are provided with a method for studying the exam. This method focuses on both the content that needs to be covered, but also (and more importantly) how best to study this content. Secondly, students train to focus on concepts and apply knowledge instead of rote memorising content. Finally, the subject gives candidates a study syllabus covering all important aspects of their preparation.
GAMSAT Essentials Course Structure
The GAMSAT Essentials Course is an online course. Candidates have access to:
- GAMSAT Essentials module: The module describes how to study for GAMSAT. Primarily, the module details approaches to studying for each section of the examination. As students progress, both the scope and depth of studies for each section are also discussed.
- GAMSAT Essentials full-length trial exam: This trial exam is unique. The first section provides candidates with insights into the styles of questions seen in recent GAMSAT sittings. The second section provides candidates with the essay topics from the most recent GAMSAT exams. Finally, the third section gives candidates a body of original questions representative of the science concepts most regularly assessed in the exam.
Overall, the course is suitable for anyone preparing to sit the GAMSAT and assists in understanding how to maximise study time.
