    I grew up in a non English speaking country, but I used to love reading English books. This might sound like a paradox, but I'm excellent at understanding English (better than most native speakers I would say) yet my writing skills are quite poor. Most of my English knowledge is from reading, so my understanding is more passive, rather than active. For example, I scored 32/35 in section 1 on the GAMSAT practice test but I'm certain that I would score below average on section 2 because it requires a written response rather than a multichoice answer. I'm just trying to say that I'm not very articulate in English. The university I'm looking at requires a minimum score of 50 in all three sections so it's pointless for me to attempt the GAMSAT if section 2 is unachievable.

    What do you think?
