GAMSAT Sample Questions
"Absolutely fantastic! More than just basic/required knowledge but the reasoning skills that you need to do well in GAMSAT!"
"I don't know how I would have prepared without Gold standard!!!!! Absolutely amazing especially all the Youtube videos with worked solutions, the textbook and online videos and chapter review questions. Would HIGHLY recommend if you are serious about preparing for GAMSAT!!!"
"Gold Standard GAMSAT provides a great basis for anyone studying for the Gamsat. Dr Ferdinand is extremely experienced and gives honest advice and is always willing to advocate other useful resources too. I would recommend these materials to anyone!"
"Took their 4 day course (Section 1 & 2, bridging day, and 2 days of section 3), and found it INCREDIBLY helpful. It really pointed out where I needed to fill the gaps in my knowledge, where I was wasting time learning content that just wouldn't be relevant, and how to tackle problems and identify patterns that show up repeatedly on the test. I don't think anyone goes into the GAMSAT feeling fully prepared, but I have a much better idea now of how to deal with the questions, and where to focus my energy, thanks to this course! Would definitely recommend it :) "
"Dr Ferdinand is an amazing teacher, very enthusiastic and helpful throughout! Highly recommend gold standard resources especially if you're from a non-science background."
"Thank you Dr Ferdinand and the GS team. I sat GAMSAT for the first time in March 2018 and it would've been a complete disaster without your help. I come from a non-science background and after doing a lot of research into the GAMSAT courses that are available I chose Gold Standard. The content is great but I found the direction on how to approach the test the equally as useful. I've heard stories from people who have done other GAMSAT courses and they weren't provided with the depth of instruction and support that I received from GS."
"When I decided to take GAMSAT, I was completely lost and did not know where should I start since I did not have a science background. . . I purchased the book that guided me around main topics and the HEAP book with 10 practise tests, I watched every single available webinar, I did live courses on campus, and used essay-correction services."
"I HIGHLY recommend both the books and the online resources which have had a huge amount of time and effort put into preparing them."
"This course is absolutely perfect. Felt overwhelmed for all three sections before I started studying for the GAMSAT, and this helped me so much for all of them. Found the Humanities textbook to be very beneficial for sections 1 and 2, and the videos (both science videos and acer answers) to be the best for section 3. Essay correction service was also excellent - they dont just give you general replies - they breakdown your essays completely, and give examples of how you could have said things differently..."
"For someone from a Non-Science Background such as myself, having these resources available to help me understand why I was getting questions wrong, and to provide a possible method for solving each of these questions was amazing. I can't thank Dr Ferdinand and his team enough for his work."
"I just received my GAMSAT results and I'm over the moon with the results! I certainly would not have been able to do it without your help!"
I just wanted to let you know that the Live Course was superb - it was definitely the best investment of both time and money that I have made during my study for the GAMSAT. I received my GAMSAT results today from the Irish sitting and obtained a 64 overall including a 66 in the science section. Absolutely delighted.

Just wanted to let you know that Kirsty starts Graduate Entry Medicine at her first choice university, Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. Her only preparation was your system for 5 weeks prior to the exam. She and we are delighted!

I sat the GAMSAT once and thanks to GS materials and courses as well as a solid plan I got the results I wanted first time! I am now getting ready to start Medical School at the end of this month.

The GAMSAT Gold channel on YouTube is a great free resource that works through the answers for the Acer practice question books.
Excerpt from GAMSAT - Some Tips from GEMS by: Grainne Allen, Graduate Entry Medicine - Class 2017, University College Dublin (UCD)
I think [Gold Standard GAMSAT] is a great book to have as a resource for directing your study... to take you through the things you’re going to need to know especially for science, definitely get a Gold Standard GAMSAT.
Review By: Thomas Kelly, MD program (Doctor of Medicine) - Class of 2017, University of Melbourne
I came from a background of both. . . a Biomedicine, which I did at the University of Melbourne and I’ve also done most of the Bachelor of Arts, Journalism degree, at Monash University. So, I did feel well relatively prepared in terms of the arts and sciences. But things like Physics, and I barely done any Chemistry - they were definitely areas that I had to work on. For this, I actually bought . . . the Gold Standard GAMSAT preparation pack. It was mostly because I was just really overwhelmed. I didn’t know what to study. . . and I really just wanted some guidance. . . I felt like it was very useful and combining that with my university studies, I really did on the day pretty well covered content-wise on my exam paper.
Review By: Renae M. Thomas, 4th year Medical Student (GAMSAT: 97th percentile), Monash University GEM
After the GAMSAT I thought there was absolutely no way I had passed! My friends encouraged me to apply anyway and I'm glad I did. I was pleased with my 58 overall and especially happy with the 66 that I achieved for the writing section. The GAMSAT essay correction is excellent and I know they contributed to my good result. Not only did I receive a coveted interview at dental school, but going through the process was incredibly enjoyable and rewarding. Thank you Gold Standard for some quality guidance.
Review By: Vivienne Morton from London, United Kingdom
I used this to prepare for my GAMSAT and found it really helpful. I started studying at the beginning of a 3 month summer break an was a bit dismayed to find that this book recommended at least 6 months! However I come from a science background and in the end managed to fit it comfortably into the 3 months. This kit was indispensable. The book guides you through your revision, it outlines the different sections of the exam clearly with plenty of examples. The essay section was particularly helpful. The essays have to be written in a very small amount of time and so his guide to structuring to include all that was needed whilst demonstrating strong grammar, spelling and well constructed arguments meant that I only wrote 1 side of A4 for each question and yet still received a really high mark for the essay section. The DVDs were also really helpful. The guy presenting them, Dr. Brett, is like the really cool science teacher who you never had but always wish you had. He has a really soothing voice and amicable manner so even on those days when I really didn't feel like studying, he still made me learn things. The flash cards were also really useful, I'd take them to work, on the journeys, use them with dinner. Really useful way to check your learning. I got a good enough score to get me 3 interviews and I am now starting med school at my first choice in September. This kit made a really challenging exam a lot less painless and I'd really recommend it if you're taking on the GAMSAT.
