We understand applying for post-graduate medicine is difficult – we’ve been there. We remember scouring the internet for resources: asking friends-of-friends-of-friends for advice, taking any opportunity to ensure we had the best chance of getting in.
That’s why we created GamsatScience. Developed by a small group of medical and dental students, this is a platform for current medical and dental students to pass on their knowledge to those aspiring to follow in their footsteps.
For those looking to enter medicine or dentistry, here you’ll find medical and dental students who truely excel in the areas they tutor, eager to share their aquired wisdom.

James Reynolds, 4th Year Medical Student, University of Melbourne
Co-founder, Specialist GAMSAT Section 3 Tutor
My name is James, and I’m in my final year of medicine at the University of Melbourne. I scored an 84 in Section 3 by approaching it as a problem-solving exercise and focusing on my ability to interpret graphs, recognise patterns and calculate maths equations efficiently rather than rote learning basic sciences. I use this philosophy to teach my students and have thoroughly enjoying seeing my students improve their GAMSAT scores.
In my spare time I love a game of tennis, soccer, chess, or pretty much anything involving some form of competition!

Jayne See, 3rd Year Dental Student, University of Melbourne
Specialist GAMSAT Section 3 (81) Tutor
Hi, I’m Jayne and a third year dental student at the University of Melbourne! I have previously sat the Gamsat multiple times and have plenty of experience with preparing for the exam. In my last sitting, I scored 81 for Section 3. I am passionate in teaching and wish to assist more students to achieve competitive GAMSAT score.
I am an active person and love going to pilates, gym and hiking during my spare time.
Ryan Clark, Honours Student, University of Melbourne
Specialist GAMSAT Section 2 (83) Tutor
Hi! I’m a postgraduate Health Policy student at La Trobe. I try to pack my days with study and quiet comforts, but I also play a bit of futsal and coach the senior ladies team at my university. When I have distinct breaks from schoolwork, I like to pick up a book or a new language, or else take up a project in my garden. You can probably tell at this point that I’m a bit of a homebody.
I’m fascinated by language and writing, and I think that having a good understanding of essay techniques and grammatical structure can be really powerful when you’re trying to communicate an idea. I hope to be able to help you excel in GAMSAT Section 2!
