HELP! I'm getting worse at Section I

Postby interwebme » Sun Aug 25, 2013 6:14 pm

Hi I've now taken four of the exams available on GAMSAT PREP. My score had been declining. The first time I took it I got a respectable 63, then 57, 59 and now 53!
Has anyone else experienced this?
Any ideas why this is happening?

Cheers,
Paul

Hi Paul,

Apologies for the incredibly late reply.

The key is for you to set aside ample time to go through the worked solutions and understand why you got some of the answers right and some of the answers wrong. Section 1 requires a certain extent of logical reasoning and a lot of inference skills. Also, the mix of passages from poetry and novels to cartoons and social/political commentaries makes judging the reason for your unfortunate scores quite difficult. So you really need to take time in analysing your answers vis a vis the explanations. Getting used to the way questions are presented and how to determine the correct answers can only be reinforced by constant practice and post-test analysis.

Hope this helps.
