Well, I rocked out on the practical and mildly bombed the written portion.
Good thing I did well enough on the earlier anatomy tests that I only need a 40% on this one to pass. My goal was to get a legit passing score (65%) on this test despite that – but… no, I doubt it.* Not quite. What can I say? I could’ve studied more, but we had that genetics test yesterday, and there wasn’t any room for phoning it in on that one.
Excuses, excuses. I know. As it turns out, I probably overstudied for genetics – I thought it was really easy. Apparently I’m alone in that opinion.
I can write that without feeling like too much of a jerk, because after hitting JUST below or JUST above the class average for every. single. other. test this semester (especially after a college career where I was always at the top, just like everyone else in med school) – well, it’s nice to feel on top of things again. Even just for one test. So I’ll totally own that feeling while I still can. (Plus, it takes the sting out of falling short of my anatomy goal.)
Alright. Off to grab a celebratory beer!
