0 It's Nearly May, Means Exam Is Approaching

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

May is equal to exam marathon and reading medical books intensively. The most important thing is feeling of being a real doctor because only during this time normally students will understand well of what they've learnt in the whole year. Haha.

Speaking about the exam, it reminds me to the examination system nowadays especially used by conventional-system university as mine, Cairo University. The system drives and forces students to get the best grade by any means because the only way to have the title 'excellent student' is by getting great result during the exam. No matter how good you are in lecture, only the result can determine your 'excellent'. That's the reality.

For me, being a good doctor and an exam scorer are two different matters. A good doctor is not supposedly an exam scorer and vice versa. To be a good doctor is one thing and being an exam scorer is another thing. Of course, there are some things intersected in between. Not all questions and facts memorized in the exam will be used during practising medicine. There are so many micro things to be remembered in medicine and I am pretty sure that those things are not used as a doctor in a real life. I mean, as a junior doctor. Yet, the more you know the better you are.

To be a good doctor, you must know what is need as a good doctor. Clinical skills, basic examination, basic medical knowledge, etc. To be an exam scorer you need a good memory and a good preparation during the exam, you can even be a scorer although you remember nothing for the rest of the year. As long as you get prepared, you will have flying colors result. So, make a choice. Which want do you prefer, an exam scorer or a good doctor, or even both. I never say being a scorer is bad, just being only a scorer is bad because you only have the knowledge during certain period of time. At the end of the day, you can't apply it in life. You can't answer questions because you don't read the particular part yet.

My exam will officially start on 30 April 2014, Pharmacology practical exam. Please pray for me.
