And by ass, I mean reviewing Basic Sciences (e.g. Anatomy, Biochemistry) in preparation for clinical clerkship. Pray for me. Haha.
The comprehensive exam was. Personally, I felt like it was a big slap to an entire year devoted to clinic hours and endless nights studying. The feeling of inadequacy kept growing more intense with every next slide of exam question.
But hey, that’s done with. All I know is I don’t ever want to feel like that ever again, so here’s to harder work from now on. Starting with seriously following my study plan for the summer break, in preparation for the medical boards (which I will ace!) and also so that I won’t be a clueless inadequate bastard of a clerk come ward rotations next year.
Though I’m just thankful God sustained me through those grueling two-and-a-half hours. Now there’s only the Grand OSCE - clinical practicals - to think about and prepare for.
Loving this new hashtag. Though I can’t stop thinking of the possibility I may not get through this if for some foul reason I fail the next two exams.
It just sank in, the next two exams would be career-defining. God knows I don’t want to graduate on 2015.
