so just after 10pm, the anatomy lecturer sent an email with a link to our mid sem results (from ages ago), and gg, it's a whole table filled with marks and student numbers. in our optm course, we have groups showing names and numbers, plus some friends know each other's numbers, so 100% no confidentiality. now everyone knows how dumb i am =/ i knew i blanked out in that test, but not that much...a bit over a week till the next anat spot test...

then we have  a3 page document on instructions for our optm2190 final (that subject with a million components) telling us everything about the exam without saying anything in the exam ): (lol, it's pretty amazing how they can do that without sounding like their waffling...) instructions include what we have to wear, to specifying which papers are coloured. for pracs, they connect some instruments to cameras, so you actually have to know what yore looking for and can't bluff that you see it...and only 24hours before do they announce which three days you have your prac exam. i can't deal with this stress=/ we know it's within 4 days, but which 4 days??you either have 4 consecutive days of exams, or 2 days with 2 exams on both days or 3days with 2 exams on 1 day and 1 exam on the other 2 days for the first week of exams. don't know which option i prefer, may the latter so i don't have to trek out to uni so much...idk... the reason they release it just before the test starts is so you don't have enough time to find your partner and examine them/memorise parts of what their eyes/features inside looks like...but still...i can't deal with surprise emails. like this one today at night-was not prepared for our marks to be put on display.

and i hope i get a partner with normal eyes, but then again, if they aren't normal, the examiners won't be as harsh on you...

when i joined the event yday, there were only around 200 people, now there's over 1k...line going to be so long, not sure if free chur burger is worth my time anymore...

but mini epiphany today! i realised when i was figuring stuff this week that i was using the wrong surface, hence completely wrong answers even though i knew how to do it before...don't know what i was thinking about the other day....

time limit for pracs are the most stressful (actually everything about an exam is stressful). it's just hard to be fast and accurate at the same time for me. if i want to be accurate, then i won't be as fast, but if i'm fast then my results aren't correct, and you only have minimal tolerances of 0.5mm (which is understandable, but under exam conditions, it's just hard to be fast and accurate)

  1. You probably wouldn't enjoy the burger as much if you had to stress over it. Much more worth it to buy one, relax and savour it :)

    And good luck for your prac exam when it comes! The first one on a 'patient' is super nerve wracking before, but it's actually not nearly as bad as you think it is.
