Periodic Table

Just wondering if the periodic table is provided on the GAMSAT?

I noticed one of the review questions asked for the electronic configuration of Br, and I didn't know the atomic number off hand so had to look at the periodic table......will the GAMSAT give you a periodic table or will they give you the atomic number in the question?

The GAMSAT has never given a periodic table in the past. As you suggested, they would normally give you the atomic number, or, in a different question, the atomic weight. Sometimes they will give information regarding more atoms than is required to solve the problem.

Despite not having one in the exam, you are still expected to know the trends in the periodic table (especially electronegativity but also ionization potential, etc.).
