Why do we fail in exam??
For every medical student, finals seem a daunting prospect. However, the truth is that most candidates pass the exam easily and most junior doctors look back at finals as being relatively straightforward, not me saying that, them.. The reason for it is that exam is simply a long and draining race and by the time you have arrived this point, the odds are with you to finish the course.
For many of us might think that the examiners are not there to fail candidates per se; in fact, the opposite is true and they are really trying to help you pass. However in some like our case, they must ensure that a safe junior doctor is unleashed on the public. Because of this, we must know the basics of all the common emergency situations. Luck plays only a small part in finals for most students and, there is a quote “The harder you work, the luckier you get.”
There is no doubt that the best performers in final MBBS candidates are those who think logically. They express themselves clearly and avoid putting their foot in their mouth by saying something stupid like i did before.. Their knowledge depth might not necessarily greater than that of their fellow candidates, but they do well in every part of the exam — writtens, clinicals and OSCE.
Tips for exam
The message is clear: We must start early! We need to practising a systematic approach to the subject. There might be certain approach that we've been told by our seniors or friends, but you may not like all of them, so choose a method that we can use and spend a great deal of time perfecting it. Also, note that a short pause before answering does not detract from the answer and may avoid a dreadful mistake
The purpose i build this blog is sharing. I love putting articles that are based on medicine so that many of us will benefits from it. Over the last few years, the world of medicine has moved on with advances in almost every field. With this in mind, apart from putting what we've learn during this 6 months, I decided to bring the text which this articles are up to date and to bring in expertise to co-author many of the chapters, especially those in which we were no longer experts! LOLZ. Each articles will be reviewed and updated by the co-author whose name is listed at the side of the blog making the only blog which comprehensively reviews from all specialities required for final MBBS examinations! What an ambitious things to do. Thus, i urge to my colleagues and my juniors to make this as a reality not a as a delusion.
