Mr Michael Sunderland Scored 91 in GAMSAT S2

 Melbourne - Collingwood

The highest GAMSAT S2 score ever (91) & 100th percentile overall

Melbourne tutor in Communication, Essay Writing, GAMSAT, Journalism, Medicine

I studied for the GAMSAT 14-18 hours a day for nearly 6 months and found early in my preparation that all S2 resources and tutoring were oriented around getting students to 75, and resources on scoring between 75 and 90+ didn’t exist. Combined with a lack of truly high-quality example essays online I was left to figure out much of it myself.

Along the way to achieving the highest Section 2 score ever, I realised that S2 isn’t a test of your writing – it’s much deeper than that. It’s a test of you and how you understand and integrate broader narratives and themes in the world around you and situate yourself within them in ways that are sensitive, humane, empathetic while displaying objectivity and maturity. To learn what I know about section 2 took purchasing every section 2 resource available (thousands of dollars), working with and burning through 7 tutors (thousands more), reading 300-400 of the best responses I could find and analysing them for common threads; and unfortunately, a great deal of guesswork, intuition, and selectively ignoring tutors who insisted they knew better and that I wouldn’t be successful if I didn’t listen.

Having now approximated what an ideal Section 2 response requires (for both Task A and Task B – in individual styles), it feels fundamentally unfair to me that others should have to repeat that process, and grope through the mystery and duress of discovering what I found. I’d rather you have time to spend with your family and friends, or additional time to study for S1 and S3. So, I decided to leave behind what I learned, so others can follow in my footsteps.

My products and teachings are designed to clearly articulate what separates a 75 from a 90+ Section 2 response. There are many resources out there that are designed to teach the basics of writing and structure. I encourage you to use them. I now mentor those students who require access to the information, knowledge and expertise that I gained during my preparation, to lift their scores from great to elite, and enjoy the relaxation of achieving a GAMSAT mark that enables them to fulfill on their dream to become a medical professional.

Please note: tutoring is intended for students that are already capable writers. I teach elite-level GAMSAT writing, not English. There are tutors who could teach you the basics of writing far better (and more cheaply). I encourage you to seek them out. If you want to demolish Section II, however, I'm your guy.

Rates vary from $100-$150 /hr, including discounts on my written resources (which are far better value for money to begin with than one-on-one tutoring with me or another tutor as they cover nearly 70,000 words (more than a thesis) on ideal Section II exposition.
