    I sat the GAMSAT in September for the first time. Despite a lot of revision and breadth of knowledge, I found the exam challenging (to say the least). I'd like to sit the exam again in March (2018) and plan to start revision around the end of October or Mid-Nov latest. I want to change my approach to revision this time to include WAY more revision doing papers/questions, as opposed to learning a tonne of topics (although understanding the topic really does help cut down on time).
    I need help with a breakdown of what I should do, and how long I should spend each day to prepare for each section.
    Strategy for:
    S1: I think my S1 went okay, I'm not too stressed about this section. But I still have a lot of room for improvement - Need help with - Revision materials (What should I read? How much time should I spend per day/week for this section?)

    S2: I really don't know how to prepare well for this section. Time just seemed to escape so fast in the real thing and I ended up writing a big, fat unstructured mess. I did write a few sample essays for prep. But I had to mark these myself and I didn't really know what to base the marking on etc.

    S3: Do more graph analysis and interpretation, cover more maths/mental calculations. More time practising papers.

    I have a semi-large library of resources and papers I've gathered from around the internet. I predominantly used Bozeman Science and Khan to revise topics for S3.
