GAMSAT Courses Ireland

Designed to prepare students from every background, our courses will always be able to provide you with the knowledge and skills required to excel in the GAMSAT Exam. We use only the same specialist tutors for each section, and in each of the sciences, who teach on our London courses. Our teaching resources, including well over 3000 pages of notes and 5000 simulated questions, have been developed since 2002 for this unique test. Our resources have not been re branded from unrelated MCAT material as with many of our competitors.

Full Preparation Course – Weekends: January 6th to March 11th 2018

Running for three months from  January until March we teach all of the core GAMSAT material, and develop the extensive reasoning skills the exam requires. Coverage is intense and consists of 20 full days of teaching at The National College of Ireland, Dublin 1.

The science-based modules are ideally suited to those with an arts or humanities background at Leaving Certificate and beyond, or those with a scientific background but rusty or not involved in its study for some time. Students receive over 3000 pages of extensive notes and over 5000 sample GAMSAT questions.

The course is broken down into the following units:

  • Physical and Organic Chemistry – 6 Full Days
  • Biology and Biochemistry – 5 Full Days
  • Physics and Medical Physics – 3 Full Days
  • Written Communication and Verbal Reasoning – 3 Full Days
  • Mathematics for Science – 1 Full Day
  • Exam Strategy – 2 Full Days

Units can be taken in full or individual units selected to build particular strengths.

Course Content

2-Day Science Strategy Course – March 10th and 11th 2018

This course is designed as a additional boost for students on section III. Taught by our Head of Sciences we make use of our extensive materials to present the most common scientific themes and skills the exam demands. 

Students receive our unique 140 page Strategy Guide as part of the course, as well as ten simulated GAMSAT Exam papers.

We will show you how to deal with all aspects of the sciences and through extensive analysis of sample questions develop your approach in a strategic way. Did you know, for example, that the exam uses 'Item Response Theory' and do you know how this should affect your approach?

Mathematics for Science - January 13th 2018

Many Section III questions rely on you having good numerical skills and applying these to a range of theories across all of the sciences. Although the level of mathematics required is not that advanced, you must be able to deal quickly with standard form, logs, straight-line graphs, logarithmic graphs and many other such techniques.

Here we spend a day analysing all of the common mathematical techniques you will encounter on the GAMSAT.  The focus is the application to simulated questions from our extensive question banks. We will show you how to use Mathematics as a tool to boost your overall score.  Whilst maths itself is not tested in the exam, the course and accompanying 57 page book will equip you with an invaluable tool set moving your score in the right direction. 

Students receive our unique 57 page Mathematics For Science book as part of the course.

Mock Examination – March 9th 2018

Students sit a full and extensively tested simulated mock examination in all sections. This mock is unique, and along with all GradMed materials has undergone years of standardisation, allowing you to understand fully your preparedness for the exam itself.

Your essays are marked by our Head of Written Communication and returned with extensive comments and suggestions for improvement. Full worked solutions are provided for Sections I and III to act as learning tools in themselves.
