Final Lap.

So exactly 2 more weeks left until my first exam.



But if I was not nervous/anxious about exams I might question my motivation to study medicine. Nervousness is what kicks you into the next gear. You work 10x harder for your exam as you know it is important and you care!

I've gotten through quite a bit of material since my last post. I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I'm on one of the last chapters for the year and will very soon be going over my notes briefly for a refresher prior to exams. We finally got our exact exam schedule and I'm a bit iffy about it. Not loving the fact that my first exam will be "Modified Essay Questions" - which is more like one word answer questions. I would much prefer to have the Extended Matching Questions first as it is multiple choice and I guess a better way to "ease" into the exam. Despite seeing a specimen paper already - I still don't know what to expect from the exam. I have questioned myself several times about the amount of detail I've been studying in. I feel that my method of studying is very clinical based so I know the pathology of diseases quite well. But when it comes to the fine details of cell interactions and stuff, I may be a little bit screwed? I really hope the exam won't be that detailed.

I'm pretty determined to do well in this exam as I have put a lot of work into studying. I have high expectations.

Hopefully all will go well and you'll be seeing a happy post instead of a long rant in the near future.


  1. It's true, I was once told you only get nervous about the things that matter to you. Best of luck for your exams, you sound like you've done a lot of preparation so I'm sure you'll breeze them. Got my fingers crossed for you :)

  2. Thank you for your comment. Really appreciate it! And thanks for following as well. :)
