I guess this effects everyone who is revising, my brain is officially mush.
On the plus side I’m getting a lot of work done. Library in 8 hours! Yay?
Exam is in 13 days.
So I just got the results for this unit - I got 66%. I’m pretty happy with that, it’s just above average and I think it reflects the amount of work I put into it.
I was talking to some third and fourth years that told me I should do just the right amount of work in 1st and 2nd years and not go too far or else i’ll burn myself out for clinical years. I think i’ll try stick to that and go crazy in my last 3 years.
Hope it works out -but I’m happy with how it’s going so far!
Revision starts for the end of semester exams NOW!!
Incorrect, this year I’m really going for it with revision - most of my days are spent revising the PBL cases of the last semester, interspersed with anatomy and occasionally evidence based medicine,
I think the best part of this revision is that for once I’m enjoying going over the material - prior to this I was doing three courses required for medicine where there where some topic I didn’t enjoy - I mean plant biology?!!?? DO NOT WANT.
So going through actual medical revision? It’s just amazing, i’m enjoying revision, and it’s great fun!
So while your enjoying the festivities, spare a thought for me - I’ll most likely be revising the bony landmarks of the scapulla!
If your not back at school, you’ll be going back to school. If your in year 12, welcome to sixth form, the next two years will probably drain you if you put in the effort, or they will leave you unfulfilled and in a place you don’t want to be in if you don’t focus.
If your going for high flying courses, or are generally aspiring for something, now is the time to really put the effort in, if you do you will be left with a sense of achievement and will be able to look back and be all like: “BOO-YEAH!”.
Just, good luck everyone, this next year/ two years will make or break you. Aspire, and work!
I’m revising for possibly some of the most important exams ever, yet I’ve also just started seeing someone. How do I balance these two things? I’m working a lot harder one day so I can see her for an afternoon or something, and it seems to be working, I don’t feel guilty that I haven’t done enough revision, and I feel comfortable with the amount of time I enjoy with her. Buuuuuuuuut what’s going to happen if I get into Med school? Am I going to be able to keep whatever this is going? That is going to be taxing, seeing as the work load will be treble what it is now… I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it. Also i’m thinking of doing more doodles. Look out for those soon!
Sorry for the epic lack of activity, but I’m hard at work revising for my exams, need to be getting those 3As! One bit of news, I got rejected from Keele, which was weird because I thought it was a safe bet! Turns out it wasn’t :’) ah well, I got a med school so that’s where I’m focusing! Anyway good luck to anyone who has exams :).
