The Guru Method GAMSAT Preparation Manuals


From: Michael Tan

Subject: GAMSAT Preparation - The Guru Method


Dear GAMSAT candidate,

January 3rd, 2 young women registered to take the GAMSAT exam. They were very much alike. Both had been better than average students, both were hardworking, determined and both - had a dream to be a doctor - they were committed to doing whatever it takes to succeed in the GAMSAT.

May 18th, they received their GAMSAT results.

They were very nervous about their GAMSAT results. They had studied as much as they could, and both, it turned out, applied to the same university.

But there was a difference. One of them received a GAMSAT score of 48. The other got 62. Only one of them received an interview.

What made the difference?

Do you wonder what makes this difference in the GAMSAT. It is not always intelligence, memory or commitment. It is not that one person had time to study and the other did not.

70% of the people sitting the GAMSAT in 2017 will not get the mark that will allow them to realise their dream of being a doctor. Their dreams will go unfulfilled and they will be left wondering where they went wrong. They will look at those of us who succeeded in the GAMSAT and wonder... "what made the difference?"

The difference is: HOW you prepare.

You need 2 things to succeed in the GAMSAT.

1. You need to put in the necessary time for GAMSAT preparation. I can't help you here, but if you are dedicated to becoming a doctor I am sure you will find the way.

2. You need to understand HOW to use your time to put yourself ahead of the thousands of other GAMSAT candidates.

The GAMSAT is designed to eliminate you.

It's purpose is to weed you out if you do not possess the "thinking skills" that are deemed desirable in a doctor. There are those rare few people who naturally possess this "thinking". They possess lightning fast quantitative and qualitative analysis skills that reach peak performance under stress and tight time constraints.

In short, they can succeed in the GAMSAT with little to no preparation.

These gifted people usually have no idea of their innate skills and laugh at their "good luck" all the way to becoming a doctor.

Myth #1: It is impossible to succeed in the GAMSAT with no preparation.

For the other 99% of you whom do not have this natural talent, most likely you will compensate by studying...really hard.

You will get dozens of textbooks and lock yourselves away from your family and friends for months in GAMSAT preparation. You will practise on textbook questions until you learn the material. You read the text over and over, summarising and committing it to memory. You review the syllabus cover to cover again and again until you are satisfied you have covered every single topic.

The scary thing is textbooks are superb - at what they do. They train your thinking to preparation for a "normal" exam. A normal university exam tests your comprehension of the material. You are expected to demonstrate knowledge of the topic and memorise the key facts, formulae, themes and concepts. Textbook questions are perfect at helping you memorise so you will be able to recall all that knowledge in the exam.

Myth #2: I have textbooks on biology, chemistry, physics, essay writing and English literature. I have all the resources I need.

But the GAMSAT is not a normal exam. If you study for it like a normal exam, you are already falling behind those people who UNDERSTAND how to prepare for the GAMSAT.

In the GAMSAT, most facts, formulae and concepts you need will be GIVEN to you in the questions. In fact, this is why those "gifted people" can score high in the GAMSAT with no preparation. They do not memorise anything prior to entering the exam. They possess lightning quick analysis skills that get better under stress and tight time limits.

More than that, they possess a specific strategy to tackle each and every question in the GAMSAT, and they are not even aware of this strategy. This strategy is the secret of success in the GAMSAT. The GAMSAT is not an exam about rote learning or memorisation. To be successful like the "naturals", you need to adopt a methodical step-by-step GAMSAT preparation strategy.

Myth #3: You cannot get easy marks in the GAMSAT.

The people who understand how to study for the GAMSAT know that it is not just a matter of studying chemistry, physics, biology or literature. You need to understand the GAMSAT.

You cannot predict what is going to be in the GAMSAT. The old cliché "expect the unexpected" is true for the GAMSAT. I can guarantee you there will be questions in the GAMSAT which you have not prepared for.

However, GAMSAT questions do have frequencies, patterns, tendencies and styles which you can predict. If your GAMSAT preparation covers these beforehand then you are ahead of nearly everyone else who is preparing for the GAMSAT, particularly those people who are studying from textbooks.

The GAMSAT patterns include:

  • The 4 types of questions in the GAMSAT that you must recognise to eliminate unnecessary reading time.
  • The 3 topics in biology almost certain to occur in the GAMSAT. You must prepare to deal with unexpected questions in these 3 topics.
  • The hidden physics concepts that are disguised as biology questions that you must recognise to get easy marks.
  • The one style of question guaranteed to occur in organic chemistry. This trips up over 90% of candidates but will give you easy marks if you prepare.
  • The 2 types of questions that are guaranteed to occur in Section I that you will need to learn a step-by-step methodology on how to answer.
  • The 2 essay types that you must be familiar with in order to gain the maximum marks in Section II.

The correct method for GAMSAT preparation

Would show you;

  • What preparation is needed for Section III GAMSAT Science section including all the topics needed to cover physics, biology and chemistry.
  • What GAMSAT questions look like for each topic. A manual that would specify exactly how your preparation relates to potential GAMSAT questions in each topic.
  • In depth analysis of actual Section II essays written by previous GAMSAT candidates.
  • The essential concepts that EVERY SINGLE person taking the GAMSAT must learn, this will automatically put you ahead of 50% of the people taking the test.
  • The formula for writing 10 out of 10 essays. No matter what strange and unexpected questions the GAMSAT throws your way, you will need a replicable GAMSAT preparation strategy for gaining maximum marks in Section II.
  • GAMSAT exam strategies which once understood will increase your chances by 50% on questions which you have absolutely no idea how to answer.
  • The differences between a 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 out of 10 essay in GAMSAT Section II which will allow you to systematically improve your essay mark each time you practise.
  • The hidden patterns of the GAMSAT that once understood will give you an unfair advantage over the thousands of other candidates sitting the GAMSAT. This will make your preparation exceedingly efficient once you apply this knowledge.
  • How to tackle the 5 different passage types in GAMSAT Section I with a consistent methodology. This will train you to improve your GAMSAT Section I performance within the allocated time.
  • Worked solutions to GAMSAT preparation questions allowing you to see a systematic methodology to answering each individual question.
  • The tailored strategies to tackle the two question types and five passage types you will receive in Section I that will put you ahead of the vast majority of GAMSAT candidates that run out of time.
  • Custom designed Section II program that involves in-depth analysis and commentary on your written Section II essays.

The GAMSAT is actually not testing whether you can memorise the most material. You need to be practising on questions that are structured meticulously so that they mimic exactly the types of questions that you will likely get in the GAMSAT.

If you can't turn your preparation into successfully answering questions in the GAMSAT within the time limits, then it doesn't matter how much you studied.

Essential knowledge about the GAMSAT

Scoring well in the GAMSAT is not just about preparation, there are lots of things you need to be aware of on exam day that could be crucial to how you score.

Section II essay coaching program

Section II is a unique part of the GAMSAT since it is the only section of the GAMSAT that is NOT multiple choice. Some would even call this section "subjective". It presents a very unique challenge in GAMSAT Preparation since it is extremely difficult for you to "dissect" your own essays, it is even harder for you to "figure out" how to improve your essays without external assessment. That's why Section II is one of the most underprepared sections in the GAMSAT.

Most candidates will not even think of adopting a rigorous training regimen towards Section II. This is huge mistake since Section II is a critical area in which you can substantially increase your GAMSAT marks over other candidates because it requires external analysis to make effective use of your preparation.

Don't take my word for it

Here are a small selection of correspondences I have received from GAMSAT candidates who have used "The Guru Method" to achieve success in the GAMSAT.

"The Guru Method" is focused specifically on your GAMSAT preparation

Faizal M, London, U.K.

"I acknowledge with thanks receipt of Guru Method study manuals. They are very interesting. I'm spending most of my time reading them. If I had them earlier the GAMSAT would have been a guaranteed success for me! Nevermind they are like gold to me.

I want other people to benefit from your precious study materials!"

"The Guru Method" makes the difference in preparation

Karen C, VIC, Australia

"When I first started researching what the gamsat stuff was all about, the material I found was kind of all over the place. It did not walk you through it like your manuals do.

Also I think the number one problem with material available on the gamsat is "where do you start studying?"

'Guru Method' really gives you a nice starting point, you know where to start and it gives you the pointers on 'how' to solve it. Other stuff shows you the workings out but doesn't step it out like yours.

I think you have got a fantastic format, this is what makes 'Guru Method' so attractive and so unique.

Considering people from non-science degrees can sit the gamsat, 'Guru Method' will really suit them and they will be craving to get their hands on it."

"The Guru Method" is comprehensive AND effective

Amanda N, NSW, Australia

" I just wanted to let you know how great I found The Guru Method Manuals.

I had several sets of GAMSAT preparation materials. I used *******, ******* and everything else I could get my hands on but I found that Guru Method was more comprehensive. In particular, the GAMSAT-style questions gave me great practise.

Your manuals were the best GAMSAT resource that I used.

I had no science background at all, yet I achieved 80 in the science section (96 and 90 in the other sections).

I really believe that my score was mainly due to Guru Method.

The Guru Method really made me more effective in directing me to study the things that was going to make a difference in the GAMSAT. It made me aware that what I needed most of all were analytical skills that were very much GAMSAT-attuned. I didn't try to memorise extraneous information, this would have interfered with my memory and my ability to approach the questions as problem-solving exercises.

Thank you very much. "

Ok, I am convinced, give me "The Guru Method" GAMSAT Preparation Manuals right now!


DO NOT lose sight of why "The Guru Method" exists in the first place. You need to learn HOW and WHAT to study in order to succeed. Nothing else matters. The GAMSAT is not a normal exam in which you can just rote learn knowledge through textbooks.

On this website I have only been able to skim the surface of what is in "The Guru Method". Every single topic is meticulously researched so that you get the best information to help you succeed in the GAMSAT.

For example, do you know the typical questions the GAMSAT will ask in Section III Organic Chemistry? This will be explained in a short and concise approach on page 42 in the Organic Chemistry manual.

The same is true for every single topic that is covered in "The Guru Method". You get information that literally could make the difference between success and failure in the GAMSAT.


If you are still sceptical then...




The fact is if you don't believe that "The Guru Method" GAMSAT Preparation Manuals has helped you significantly towards achieving your goal of becoming a doctor then you shouldn't have to spend your money... you deserve to ask for a full refund.

I think that's only fair. I don't want anybody feeling like they did not get what they paid for.
