It’s finally summer, which means medical school for this year is finally over!!
It’s been 11 months of academic hell having never touched a chemistry book past GCSE and barely a biology book… but overall this year or last few months have mainly consisted of
Spending far too much money that my savings have all but disappeared – most of it on revision food…
And not really having a social life for the best part of 3 months
I PASSED the graduate medicine year!!
I literally couldn’t believe it!!! i was sitting on a train on to way down to the shire to see the life giver when my results came out. I spent the first 3 hours of the train journey being a total fidget, with the man across from me looking really concerned until I finally managed to get onto the internet to find out my results and call 8 people irritating every one on the train… but finally it has all paid off!
BUT…I’m going to be a 3rd year medical student on the wards!
I’m both scared and nervous at the same time, they are trusting me to deal with actual patients now…
However, I’ve got to start thinking before speaking and actually remember all the information that I’ve had to press into my tiny brain this year, which I have already forgotten after working for a few weeks.
I’d really just hoping my brain has put it all away for ‘safe keeping’
