I'm back, sup everyone? - peshitta_enthusiast - 04-02-2005

Hey all,

I have finally finished my GAMSAT (graduate accepted medical school admission test) and am back in business <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif" alt="Smile" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile --> I think I did so well that I could show up to the med school interview in the nude and still be accepted. My friend seems to have done okay as well. Thanks to everyone who prayed for us.

Yeah, I know about these GAMSAT tests. They were invented in Australia weren't they? Over here in the UK they are using these as well now. I have a degree in a non-science subject and was looking into GAMSAT and saw the practice paper - it was bloody difficult! All I can say is, if you pass it then you must be very good at statistical interpretation and the like. What makes it more tough is the time limit.

Wow, no way! All the best to you. This was my 2nd try. My first try I had a mark good enough to get in but I wanted to be sure, especially when I planned to take a year off for working anyway (otherwise I couldn't become a registered pharmacist). Like body language GAMSAT is. It's not so much what you know but how you know. Hmmm... To illustrate I spent all last summer studying science for NOTHING. The first time I did GAMSAT I had a big shock, all the answers are right there, you just have to find them the right way. This second time around I had a study partner and we concentrated a lot on non-science stuff and PRACTICE. Vital for speed - and confidence! When I got a practice question right I'd be all "too good mate, too good!" much to the annoyance of my partner hehe. I am used to finishing university exams 0.5-1 hour early and when it comes to GAMSAT we are talking 5 minutes to spare. "Normal people" run out of time easily.

Focus on "low stimuli / high question yield" units. One guy had a whole column of unanswered questions and still got one of the best marks ever. Because what he did answer he answered right.

If you need more tips or whatever feel free to email me. I've got like 3 courses worth of revision notes and tips <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/happy.gif" alt="Big Grin" title="Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin --> My handy "12 page cheapo GAMSAT notes" have helped many a GAMSAT taker and are almost legendary (well in my mind haha - still someone hugged the crap out of me when I produced them a copy!)
