cbsquared Chemistry for the GAMSAT

This course covers 99% of the Chemistry in the GAMSAT. We start with the basics, and move to higher level concepts in the topics across general and physical chemistry to organic chemistry.

About this course

Do you feel a little overwhelmed with trying to work out exactly what you need to know for the GAMSAT?
Think that perhaps you're a little out of your depth because you don't have a science background?
The cbsquared Chemistry for GAMSAT course may be just what you've been looking for.

This unique online course is designed to bridge the gap between having only Year 12 Chemistry and/or science knowledge, and the standard of Chemistry and science understanding required for the GAMSAT.

The course includes:

  • Lecture presentations for all 18 Chemistry topics (most topics have 1-2 hours of presentations each)
  • 18 Tutorials with fully worked answers
  • Resources documents including quick reference charts, course summaries and information tables.
  • Concept lists for each topic-so you know exactly what to cover.

Studying for the GAMSAT at home can be challenging. Structure and a clear direction are key. This course provides that structure, and you can plan the time you have between now and the next GAMSAT date. 

The benefits of the course are:

  • Unique course tailored specifically for GAMSAT students
  • Work through the material at your own pace, fit your study in around work and other study commitments
  • Study planner provided to plan your time
  • Discussion boards for interacting with instructors and other students regarding course materials
  • Access the course on your computer, iPad/tablet and smart phone
  • Designed using feedback from students who found other preparation materials hard to learn from
  • Suits students with all backgrounds in Chemistry, maths and science, from those with no background, to those with first year university
  • Includes resources and links to mathematics and graphical concepts which can help for Physics and Biology topics as well.
