I’m taking the GAMSAT in around 9 months or so and have no idea on how to revise for it, what to revise, could someone recommend a syllabus to follow, or maybe what they did. Anything would help. THANKS IN ADVANCE

Griffith’s GAMSAT review is the best place to start for a syllabus

Khan Academy and MCAT-review websites are good for learning the material on the syllabus

Here is the rough structure I used for my preparation:

1. Overview - Got comprehensive overview of the exam from Griffiths GAMSAT review (no real in-depth information here but excellent for general information).

2. Knowledge development - khan academy videos/A level text books to develop my understanding for section 3 (syllabus within Griffiths guide is useful here) and some reading for section 2 (the economist every week, the meaning of things by A.C. Grayling... youtube videos are also quite useful when reading becomes a chore! there are good TED talks on youtube but it's also good for just brushing up on some general politics/history/economics/philosophy etc)

3. Skill development - practiced writing essays under time pressure, practiced section 1 and 3 questions under time pressure. Sometimes just one or two questions a day, sometimes a dozen, sometimes a half-test and four full tests over 5 months. The Des Oneil courses were invaluable for this - the questions are more like the GAMSAT than any other resources I came across and there are absolutely loads of practice questions and tests.

Hope that helps - any more questions feel free to PM me. Also if anyone would like the Des ONeil courses PM me - they really are very useful.
