    FrenchUnicorn Such a good read as usual - so interesting! :hugs: It was fantastic that you were 1st in your mock!! Congratulations!! I cant believe you have been though such a sad time, yet emerged at the other end ready to continue. Not many people can do that at all, it was rather inspiring :hugs:

    Thanks Amellia I always enjoy your cute words
    Indeed sad times.. But "life goes on" is not a cliché, I know now that it's true.
    Thanks for the mock, I was really proud ! I used to be between 30th and 100th - which was amazing- and this time I was 1st really motivated me. It proved I was capable !

    I can't wait for my next exams to come, to prove to myself I can keep going, and I'll win my place at the med school, where I belong ! :heart:

    Omg Unicorn this is such an interesting read. Gives a good insight into stuff in France. But what 11 exams in 2 days? Are you serious?

    It seems as though to some extent you validate your intelligence relative to others but whilst that makes sense on some level you should just be confident that you are a smart girl and you don't need external quantitative results to prove that imo. I think we have come to value academic exam results too much, as if it's like some sort of absolute measure of intelligence.

    I have always done well in exams, through school and university, but I know I don't need those grades to have confidence in my abilities. I believe intelligence is so much more than doing well in an exam.

    Exams and pressure also take the fun and curiosity out of learning for the most part. The way I think study should become is more focused on true learning as opposed to forced and temporary retainment of information. Idk.

    Not sure if that even makes sense- it was just my thoughts as I read.

    Hope you're okay lovely xx
