Hey, first post, hope I'm not doing anything wrong...
but yeah, I'm doing Science this year at UoM instead of Biomed 'cause I'm not wholly convinced I want a career in the Health Sciences, but I still want the option of doing Med after my 3 years if I decide I really wanna do it

But yeah, would anyone know which subjects at UoM would cover the content of the GAMSAT?

I'm doing Biology of Cells and Organisms, Genetics and Evolution of Life, Chemistry 1 and Chemistry 2, Physics 1: Fundamentals anyway, should I choose any other subjects?

Do I require 2 semesters of Physics? Or will the physics subject I'm doing now be enough?

You are covered for all the sciences.

You only need the equivalent of grade 12 physics for the GAMSAT. Taking even one semester at uni level is more than enough.

Keep in mind that though knowledge is necessary (to get the basic language), the GAMSAT is more about reasoning (so you'll need to get all ACER materials and practice papers).

I'm pretty sure that Melbourne uni has prerequisite subjects under its new program.....

I'd suggest contacting the school of medicine to ask them directly.

If you do ask them, would you please come and post them here for everybody to see?
