I mean, aside from how I might have to retake it this summer because I didn’t really understand the paper we were given for our final, I think I still came out okay.
(I thought “number needed to treat” was something magical that papers just gave you for free, like p values and CIs. But our test asked for it and I couldn’t find it, so I just made one up. I optimistically decided it might be the same thing as the absolute risk reduction*, because I’m scientific like that.)
So, yes. Next up is our infectious diseases test on Friday. I sincerely promise I won’t be making things up on that test – mostly because it’s multiple choice instead of long answer, but also because I’ve actually been studying infectious diseases, since I have the added motivation of not wanting to kill anybody.
… In case you guys haven’t noticed, me taking multiple classes at once seems to be a really bad idea. It’s like trying to date 4 people at once and being penalized every time one of them feels neglected.
Multiple classes is confusing, you’re lucky you get 4! I’m a first year in the UK and my weekly timetable at the moment includes cardio, musculoskeletal, microbiology, gynae, pathology, immunology, psychology and clinical skills. We then get a big combined exam at the end of each semester rather than every few weeks. It helps my knowledge retention to learn over 3 months but I need to be damn organised!
Holy crap, that is one hell of a schedule!
That is the best analogy ever! So true.
