I am an English grad. that wants to enter medicine. I took the GAMSAT yesterday and the first two sections were ok... could have been worse. But section 3 was absolute alien to me.

I did not revise any Science, (stupid I know) so I crossed C on the entire paper.

I am motivated to work for the next exam (March) but how best to conquer S3? I have read a lot online but for those with similar background, could you help or guide me into making a timetable and what exactly to revise? How I apply this to a question as it is a skills test?

I will update this thread with my score. I studied the first two sections by doing a practise paper the day before (managed an average of 50ish out of 70) and the Science... well...

I do want to score amazing in March so I am prepared for Septembers application process in 2020.

I would start with the Griffiths GAMSAT review. The guide includes a solid syllabus for S3. Then it's up to you as how you want to learn that content. I mostly used the Gold Standard GAMSAT book, which as a non-scientist I found pretty easy to follow and not too overwhelming (although it does get some bad reviews). Khan Academy and other youtube channels are also a fantastic free resource, but lack some of the other perks such as practise questions, etc.

Some people recommend some A-level textbooks, I found these too much and too difficult. I also hired a tutor for a few sessions as I had lots of questions and there were some topics that I really struggled with, although I didn't find this that helpful in the end (this can vary on tutor I suppose).

So: Griffiths > figure out how you want to learn/revise > learn/revise > do the ACER practise tests/questions

(assuming nothing has changed since I last sat the GAMSAT in 2015)
