GAMSAT Science Review Schedule

BRAND NEW free 1-day bridging course: In the morning, science students can review Section 1 and 2 practice and strategies. Non-science students cover basic science to prepare for the next 2 days of review. In the mid-afternoon, both groups review GAMSAT graphing with practice questions and worked solutions (PBL).

* We realise that not everyone fits cleanly in either of these categories so it comes down to a personal choice. If you have a remote science background, little or no science in your formal university education then these are generally regarded as “Non-science Background”.

Our bridging course is bonus study time that you can use in whatever way benefits you most. You can attend in full or in part. You can bring other study materials if you wish.

Our Gold Standard GAMSAT Courses schedules are likely outlines of our courses but may be somewhat modified without notification depending on class size and need, as well as any suggested or announced changes to the real GAMSAT, or other unforeseen circumstances. We prioritise preparing students for the real exam rather than teaching topics which are no longer relevant.

Re: Essay writing correction

If by expository essay, you mean a compare and contrast or an analysis of a concept for the sake of putting forth an educated opinion about the theme provided in the writing task, then yes it could work. We've had students who came back to us with excellent Section 2 scores, and they used one format (argumentative or discursive) for both writing tasks. You see, one of the main requirements in Section 2 is for a candidate to be able to express an opinion on a given theme. Of course, in order to earn a good mark, you must be able to demonstrate that your opinion is based on logic and reason, hence the need for highly relevant, qualified and well-discussed examples.
