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.
Are you ready to sit the upcoming GAMSAT Exam? Don’t worry if you’re not, as you can start METC Institute’s Free GAMSAT Essentials Course (coming soon) with full-length Trial Exam now to assess your capabilities, then plan where to direct future study activities when you’re finished.
While this course is to be offered for free (normally $97.00) shortly, please don’t underestimate the value of this important educational resource that is a well-constructed and detailed orientation to the ACER GAMSAT Exam. The course aims to guide and direct student efforts into learning the right study approach for GAMSAT success.
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.
Why Should I Join the Essentials Course?
If you are unsure how to approach the GAMSAT exam for ideal preparation, you are not alone. The vast majority of candidates we engage with have little idea about how to ideally approach the GAMSAT exam, so diving straight into humanities or physical science course theory may not help you to advance section scores.
By doing this course, students will start to understand their GAMSAT preparation problem, their strengths and weaknesses, and what potential solutions might be. Students will learn the essentials for a good vs bad course and how to get the most value from their study and preparation.
At the end of the course, students should be able to develop an outline of the curriculum for each section, comprise a study plan to cover the complete curriculum with enough time for revision prior to the GAMSAT exam, commence active learning tasks (practice questions, essays and exams) frequently while studying the theory, and review performance in active learning tasks – the key to improvement.
Importantly, students will learn how to study more efficiently through understanding the Cone of Learning and the Feynman Technique – as this course encourages students to understand and apply these concepts/techniques in their GAMSAT study.
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.
- GAMSAT Tutorials: You will receive access to previous GAMSAT tutorials that have already been published on our YouTube Channel. Additionally, you will be notified of upcoming tutorials that will be published on an ongoing basis, which will assist you in your preparation for GAMSAT.
Overall, the course is suitable for anyone preparing to sit the GAMSAT and assists in understanding how to maximise study time.
Full-Length Trial Exam
This course includes a full-length trial exam for student’s capability assessment. By completing the trial exam in a timed-fashion under simulated exam conditions, students can gain an indication of the level of difficulty associated with Section I, II, and III, in order to assess their sectional capabilities and to determine where to focus future activity. Students will also gain valuable experience in the ideal study techniques required for successful preparation.
The course content is delivered on-demand, so you can start and stop the educational content in the Learning Management System and come back later – however please note exams must be completed in one sitting. Before you start, there is an incentive to complete the GAMSAT Essentials Course and full-length Trial Exam outlined below.
