Join us for our 10th year of live GAMSAT courses.

Within a few years, our problem-based GAMSAT preparation courses have expanded from 4 full days to 8 full days with no tuition fee increases. Our preparation courses cover all three sections of the GAMSAT. Our tuition fees are even more budget-friendly with economical course packages that you can choose from! We have a new option where you can customise your learning by attending only the courses that target an area of weakness for just $199 per one full day of our interactive classes including course handouts: non-science (Section 1 & 2) only or science (Section 3) only. In celebration of our 10 years of GAMSAT teaching, we are further expanding our class time for a total of 100 contact hours including 64 hours on campus and 12 weekly, interactive online tutorials. Our aim is to provide you with more direction to your GAMSAT preparation by adopting the problem-based learning approach and by providing you with more guidance to help you maximise your use of our books, videos and other learning materials. We also have options, which include our newly expanded 70+-hour GAMSAT Video Library, containing engaging teaching videos that begin as though you are a non-science student and work their way up to GAMSAT-level problem-based learning including complex graph analysis and interpretation (click to see sample GAMSAT Videos). Below you can read some student testimonials and learn about the various preparation courses that we offer that can boost your GAMSAT score.

    • Julia Khaziakhmetova

    "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[s] book with 10 practise tests, I watched every single available webinar, I did live courses on campus, and used essay-correction services... I could not be more satisfied and confident with my preparation."

  • N
    • Nathan Benson

    "Felt overwhelmed for all three sections before I started studying for the GAMSAT... 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 [don't] just give you general replies… and give examples of how you could have said things differently."

    • Dominic Givney

    "... the youtube breakdowns of EVERY SINGLE ACER past paper for FREE is truly a godsend for anybody who is studying for GAMSAT. 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."

    • Emma Kate Sutton

    "After sitting the GAMSAT several times and trying several other preparation courses out there, I came across the Gold Standard by watching Brett's YouTube videos. I signed up for the full program... I finally achieved my dream GAMSAT score and was offered my first Medical School interview at my first choice University! Could not recommend this course more highly! It's an absolute game changer!!"

    "The dedication, conscientious student-centred approach and excellent collaboration within the team are evident in the comprehensive range of their service – the textbooks, Question of the Day, webinars, videos, work solutions for practice tests, the Heaps book, the Live Course and the Essay Correction Service, to name a few… Thank you all for your great effort and being such excellent guides along the journey."

    • May

    "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 have a much better idea now of how to deal with the question…"

  • C
    • Conor O'Brien

    "Thank you Dr Ferdinand and the GS team… 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 [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."

  • R
    • Rebecca Marks

    "I HIGHLY recommend both the books and the online resources which have had a huge amount of time and effort put into preparing them. The free videos on Youtube are especially amazing - each and every Acer paper has been examined with individual breakdowns for each of the questions. Such a fantastic resource! Thank you for all your time and effort."
