3 Weeks left till Y2 Finals!

Wishful thinking, but i hope the summer exams go a little like this:

Just 3 more week till i'm faced with this:

- 06/06 - Paper Bii (SAQ)

- 07/06 - Paper Bi (EMQ + SBA)

- 09/06 - Paper D (OSCEs)

- 10/06 - Paper C (Spotter)

Time for 3 weeks of revision CRAM !

But before i can get on with it, we've been annoyingly assigned to have basic life support, manual handling.. and worse of all... progress testing this week!

Progress testing - this was painful, very very painful, over 2 hours worth of 120 questions set at the USMLE level, and not being able to answer any of them.. that sort of painful.

We weren't expected to pass this exam, and its purely formative to monitor our progression through medical school (we sit this exam at the end of every year from Y2). I sound a bit of a geek here, and despite hating every bit of the 2 hours, im intrigued to see how i would do next year sitting the same exam with one year of clinical experience. (YAY... can't wait to start clinical years!)

Just manual handling and basic life support left this week... then thats finals and bye bye year 2!

Best of luck, I'm sure you'll be fine. And well done for sticking through the progress test - I remember only doing half and then just clicking anything so I could leave lol

Also I think we did the yr 3 one near the beginning of the year...which seemed pointless lol

Let me know if you need any help with anything.

Ahaha! Loved the image you used. Good luck on your finals! My last one is tomorrow, and it would be awesome if it was a piece of cake. Part of me thinks that won;t be the case though. :P Cheers!
