    I'm a medic...

    - Ask mods to ban you from TSR!
    - There's a recession on, keep studying and get qualified!
    - Look at shiny expensive things you can buy when you're a dr/dentist

    Go through the lecture slides whilst trying to answer the learning objectives, making notes on key points and trying to memorize everything....because they ask us literally anything!

    Yeah same .. I've like got the longest studying process ... Re-write all lectures plus additional clinical points ... Then discuss what i've learnt with group mates and then re -read all my notes and then go back and bullet point main points from each topic ive studied .. Now this when a student cries at the thought of wishing he was able to just read and learn

    I know. I have to make notes on my notes. And then notes on my notes and maybe a diagram/mindmap or two.

    Yep and put the clinical points in a little box or on a post it note.

    In fact, post it notes are really handy for highlighting key points on notes, on your wall..

    Like what?

    Sometimes I work with a friend, if you work with the right person can be v motivating and you can teach each other/do quick fire questions. Questioning each other helps.

    Can't remember who said it but yeah, a study-buddy helps. Orrr, you could do what I do: laze about and feel guilty for a couple weeks, practically fail your trial exams because you were up 26hours straight watching some old sitcom and then come to the reliasation '****, I gotta study or my future is screwed'. Then sit your exams and (hopefully) pass- flying colours not guaranteed.

    Works every time ;p

    Learn with a different mindset...with school it was fine to just study for the exams and nothing more.

    At uni, enjoy it, learn to further your understanding in dentistry. It sounds cheesy, but everything becomes a whole lot more relaxed when you use your passion for the subject.

    You have an incredible revision routine, but you sound like you just need to relax and calm down. Enjoy it as much as you can
