Hey,

What aides are you allowed to take into the GAMSAT? Can you take a calculator and highlighters or is it restricted to just pens and pencils?

Cheers
From what I have read, calculators are no longer allowed. Highlighters can be allowed I think this depends on the centre but you can always use a pen to highlight if they disallow highlighters.

Ive got a few of us meeting at Clapham Junction on Monday evening if that isn't too far for you? Happy to travel nearer to you next time?
Hey! If you are revising for the September sitting, count me in! I don't live far from Clapham Junction, and my current uni is close to King's Cross, so I do not mind meeting in either venue. If you are still accepting people I would also like to join!

Hey guys. I'm Selling the Des O'Neill PDF booklets. Its the latest version (2014) and I know they've stopped making them now. They have been so so useful for my own revision, I can't stress how much the questions are similar to the real exam and there are just endless pages of questions that you can do under timed conditions.Let me know if you are interested
Hi! How much are you selling them for?

Hi all,

Wonder if anyone can help me.

Currently studying Bsc Paramedic Practice but other than that don't have relevant scientific knowledge for part III (I.e no Chem or Biology A-Levels). Is there anyway to start from scratch or any good revision sources I can use?
TIA!

I can pm you the syllabus I used if you want! It's pretty long to type all on here.

It's actually not that hard to revise for the Gamsat; it's more a case of sitting yourself down for 2/3 hours a day for a good 3 months I'd advise. What's hard about this exam is more the length and the stamina you must conjure up for it. In practising questions, I'd advise doing chunks of questions together under time pressured conditions following the first few weeks of revision - the point is to be able do question after question without losing concentration. Purely answering questions leisurely in your revision isn't as useful.

I got 77 in my essay section and honestly my main advice IS to do essay after essay. Read AC Grayling's essays online as they give you good lines of thought.

Other than that, do as many practice questions as you can. Contrary to belief, revision of science content is less helpful. Know the velocity, density, force etc. formulae but know more how to APPLY them (and you'll get that from doing questions) )

I hope this helps! (I'm selling some GAMSAT material i used to sit the exam in Sep 2017 if anyone is interested). It's really not crazy stressful if you control your anxiety, it just requires stamina.

TIA!

Chemistry - work through the Leah4Sci videos (Fischer projections, chirality, enantiomers, mechanisms, acidity, kA)
Physics - Work through the electricity, waves, capacitors, nuclear fission videos. Just watch them and make a FEW notes.
Biology - Any standard A-level book.


Reflecting on my Section III revision it was most useful when I did questions. Get access to questions so you can just practice, practice, practice!
There are even gamsat videos online explaining how you get to some of the answers from the practice papers.

try and find A-level questions online and answer them timing yourself

Hey,

Just looking for some advice. I've been ill for the last few weeks (excellent timing) and the new meds i'm cause a lot a nausea and occassionaly vomiting. Theres not a chance in hell i'm missing the exam, spent too much of the last 3 months stressing about it. But I don't suppose anyone knows if theres some sort of protocol for illness and the exam? I feel like the invigilators are going to be very suspicious if I leave the hall every 30 minutes to throw up.

Any advice would be appreciated!

I honestly went to the toilet about 5 times during section 3 so I wouuldn't too much. However, my friend fainted during the exam and they didn't give her any mitigation. They're really quite strict on that account.

That's really crap I can feel your pain. I would advise to just go for it (as you already are) and see how it goes. Just tell the invigilator directly before the test so they know. You could then email Gamsat and tell them directly. Their policy does seem quite strict but I think it's mostly for those who take the piss a bit. This year's instructions email contains a strong emphasis on wearing layers in the test centre if it's too hot/too cold, and I think this is a big clue to what people have complained about in the previous years. In your case the situation is genuine so shouldn't be a problem in terms of potential mitigating circumstances my opinion.

Good luck and I hope you feel better soon (I know the exam nerves won't help but still)

I did, but I got the response that the office was shut until the 26th. Called the GAMSAT office in the UK and woman said she didn't know, which was so useful of her.
