Updated on August 7, 2012

How Do I Ace The GAMSAT Essay Section?

Well, I'm glad you asked :)

There are a few things to remember about this section. You may call them Fast Facts:

#1 - 2 essays in 1 hour means timing is critical

#2 - Each essay requires a different writing style

#3 - Each essay covers a different theme, thus step #2

#4 - It is not about writing the best structured, best sounding, award winning essay

#5 - The most important thing is to use quality original memorable ideas in your essays

#6 - The one and only way to prepare which is worth your time is....use a gamsat quality set of quotations, write an essay on it, send it to a marker, get their feedback and use it to improve your next essay.

Can I Please Has Some Sample GAMSAT Essay Statements?

Yes - here they are. If you want a more detailed module on how to address the GAMSAT essays, go to the link below where you will get it free.

The Essays 1 And 2:

While writing these first two essays keep in mind that at this point, you should take your time writing the essay but keep them short - maximum of 1.5 typed pages with single spacing.

Follow these instructions for each of the writing tests:

Consider the following comments and develop a piece of writing in response to one or more of them. Your writing will be judged on the quality of your response to the theme: how well you organise and present your point of view, and how effectively you express yourself. You will not be judged on the views or attitudes you express.

*********************

Writing Test A

Peace has never come from dropping bombs. Real peace comes from enlightenment and educating people to behave more in a divine manner.

Carlos Santana

Peace is not an absence of war, it is a virtue, a state of mind, a disposition for benevolence, confidence, justice.

Baruch Spinoza

Peace is not a relationship of nations. It is a condition of mind brought about by a serenity of soul. Peace is not merely the absence of war. It is also a state of mind. Lasting peace can come only to peaceful people.

Jawaharlal Nehru

Yes, we love peace, but we are not willing to take wounds for it, as we are for war.

John Andrew Holmes

Mankind must remember that peace is not God's gift to his creatures; peace is our gift to each other.

Elie Wiesel

Writing Test B

You see things; and you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say, "Why not?"

George Bernard Shaw

There is only one admirable form of the imagination: the imagination that is so intense that it creates a new reality, that it makes things happen.

Sean O'Faolain

"Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back, a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country."

Anais Nin

Once I dreamed I was a butterfly, and now I no longer know whether I am Chuang Tzu, who dreamed I was a butterfly, or whether I am a butterfly dreaming that I am Chuang Tzu.

Chuang Tzu

Some of us let great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.

Woodrow Wilson
