Successful Candidature We cannot give you truthfulstatistics on the success rate of our candidates in obtainingplaces at medical schools because privacy provisions since 2005have precluded accurate collection of such data. Success rates inthe ten years prior to that were exceptional and participationrates in our courses have risen by an average of 20% p.a. sincethen. We hope that you too will enjoy success.

I sat Gamsat last year as practice with virtually no preparationand got 63 overall. I enrolled in your Titanium Package in order toprepare for the real thing this year and achieved an overall scoreof 72 with a big improvement to 80 in the Science. I got 79 in theessays, my thanks to your WBE markers.
I found your course comprehensive and extremely helpful inpreparing for Gamsat. On the day, I found there were no surpriseswhich to me is a reflection of how well your course and practicequestions/essays mimic the real thing.
Thank you for your assistance and the excellent courses you havedeveloped over the years. I attended the Science Revision and Examtechnique courses. I found them well prepared, professionally runand most importantly, highly relevant and useful.
Thank you. Your course was invaluable to me and I believe itprovided a fantastic set of resources, skills and hints forpreparation. I doubt I could have passed without your inspiredteaching. I came to you by referral and will gladly sing yourpraises too.
At GAMSAT, knowledge of certain areas of science is presumed.Thus test developers can use appropriate terms and concepts andexpect that you will be able to understand them. They can writequestions that use conceptualisations, structures, and jargon fromFirst Year University courses in Chemistry and Biology as well asfrom all the topics of Year 12 Physics. Via the results ofthousands of GAMSAT candidates on our trial tests from 1996onwards, we have identified areas of science that candidates needto relearn or revise. These major areas of General and HumanBiology, Physical & Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry and Physicsare the basis of our Science-Revision Course. Our Science Summaryoutlines in detail those areas of science that we consider areprerequisite knowledge for GAMSAT and that forms the basis of ourScience-Revision Course. It also gives a list of suitable referencebooks. GAMSAT Preparation Courses has condensed the study matter sothat candidates can prepare at their own pace with all theessential material at their disposal.
