GAMSAT Sample Questions
I just wanted to let you know that the Live Course was superb - it was definitely the best investment of both time and money that I have made during my study for the GAMSAT. I received my GAMSAT results today from the Irish sitting and obtained a 64 overall including a 66 in the science section. Absolutely delighted.

Just wanted to let you know that Kirsty starts Graduate Entry Medicine at her first choice university, Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. Her only preparation was your system for 5 weeks prior to the exam. She and we are delighted!

I sat the GAMSAT once and thanks to GS materials and courses as well as a solid plan I got the results I wanted first time! I am now getting ready to start Medical School at the end of this month.

The GAMSAT Gold channel on YouTube is a great free resource that works through the answers for the Acer practice question books.
Excerpt from GAMSAT - Some Tips from GEMS by: Grainne Allen, Graduate Entry Medicine - Class 2017, University College Dublin (UCD)
I think [Gold Standard GAMSAT] is a great book to have as a resource for directing your study... to take you through the things you’re going to need to know especially for science, definitely get a Gold Standard GAMSAT.
Review By: Thomas Kelly, MD program (Doctor of Medicine) - Class of 2017, University of Melbourne
I came from a background of both. . . a Biomedicine, which I did at the University of Melbourne and I’ve also done most of the Bachelor of Arts, Journalism degree, at Monash University. So, I did feel well relatively prepared in terms of the arts and sciences. But things like Physics, and I barely done any Chemistry - they were definitely areas that I had to work on. For this, I actually bought . . . the Gold Standard GAMSAT preparation pack. It was mostly because I was just really overwhelmed. I didn’t know what to study. . . and I really just wanted some guidance. . . I felt like it was very useful and combining that with my university studies, I really did on the day pretty well covered content-wise on my exam paper.
Review By: Renae M. Thomas, 4th year Medical Student (GAMSAT: 97th percentile), Monash University GEM
After the GAMSAT I thought there was absolutely no way I had passed! My friends encouraged me to apply anyway and I'm glad I did. I was pleased with my 58 overall and especially happy with the 66 that I achieved for the writing section. The GAMSAT essay correction is excellent and I know they contributed to my good result. Not only did I receive a coveted interview at dental school, but going through the process was incredibly enjoyable and rewarding. Thank you Gold Standard for some quality guidance.
Review By: Vivienne Morton from London, United Kingdom
I used this to prepare for my GAMSAT and found it really helpful. I started studying at the beginning of a 3 month summer break an was a bit dismayed to find that this book recommended at least 6 months! However I come from a science background and in the end managed to fit it comfortably into the 3 months. This kit was indispensable. The book guides you through your revision, it outlines the different sections of the exam clearly with plenty of examples. The essay section was particularly helpful. The essays have to be written in a very small amount of time and so his guide to structuring to include all that was needed whilst demonstrating strong grammar, spelling and well constructed arguments meant that I only wrote 1 side of A4 for each question and yet still received a really high mark for the essay section. The DVDs were also really helpful. The guy presenting them, Dr. Brett, is like the really cool science teacher who you never had but always wish you had. He has a really soothing voice and amicable manner so even on those days when I really didn't feel like studying, he still made me learn things. The flash cards were also really useful, I'd take them to work, on the journeys, use them with dinner. Really useful way to check your learning. I got a good enough score to get me 3 interviews and I am now starting med school at my first choice in September. This kit made a really challenging exam a lot less painless and I'd really recommend it if you're taking on the GAMSAT.
