    I sat this exam twice and improved my score in this section by continuous practice of writing essays. If you have griffiths gamsat review there is a 5 step plan on how to form your essays that should help.

    My preparation was very minimal, I brainstormed themes and that was basically it. I managed to score 74.
    I work better under pressure and with Gamsat essays it's more about how you convey your argument as opposed to the actual argument.

    If you can plan an argumentative essay you'll be fine.

    Theoretical max is 100. Though in practice anything above 65 is rather good and anything 75+ is impressive. Sorry Biochemical Wizard, that score is pretty tame

    Lol, I am not too fussed. I guess stating that the score was in the top 1% sounds better.
    I was simply trying to emphasise that practise does not necessarily make perfect.
