Random Quote Generator Organised chaos

Keep up to date with Graduate Medicine Informant on social media!

Here you will find a set of five randomly selected quotations, sourced predominantly from the excellent collection at goodreads. Each set is based around a common theme, as in GAMSAT. To practise for Section II, give yourself five minutes thinking time and then allow 30 minutes writing time for an essay (or other writing piece) based on the quotations. For some feedback, you may wish to consider posting your completed essay in the PagingDr Essay Practice and Critique thread. To get another set, simply reload the page.
