    Ha, fair enough. My point was that if you've just done your last exam today, you should bask in the glory of that for a bit and have some time off!

    Pre-reading before medical school is pointless and a massive waste of time. Seriously, enjoy your time off while you can before you get on the med school conveyer belt!

    I was thinking of that exactly but I thought it will be inefficient. Excuse me, I am still in the work-mode and its hard to pull out of it all of a sudden

    I prescribe a dose of Netflix... Take one programme and binge watch the whole series. Repeat as needed until symptoms resolve.

    Ha, no, it would be more inefficient to try and teach yourself medicine in a random bits and pieces fashion over the next two months.

    Seriously, give yourself a break and go do something fun and different.

    I'm afraid Netflix hasn't been licensed by NICE and thus you'll have to pay privately (the pain when Netflix is cheaper than an actual prescription).

    But in all seriousness, enjoy the break! Rest your brain. It's one of the last times, before you retire, that you have a proper break from studying/work. You want to be well rested before you start because medicine really is a marathon.

    I agree.

    Hi Omar,

    Relax! No need to prepare yourself too much! It will all fall into place once you start at Medical School.

    However, if you ever get bored and want to do a bit of fun and interesting reading, one of our student bloggers wrote a little reading list!

    You can check it out here.

    Hope you enjoy your summer!
