Draw diagrams, colour code with arteries, veins, muscles and bones etc. Most importantly give yourself time, don’t try and rush learn as anatomy and stress really don’t mix

What stage are you at? Your post makes it sound like you're trying to self-teach. Some clarification would be helpful

Learn what the different body regions and planes are called.
Then learn how to refer to a part of the body in those terms.

Have a printout on a wall or noticeboard which you'll see often to help you think about it.

ANKI is great for anatomy. There is an extension (https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/1374772155) which allows you to mask images in ANKI which is how I learn anatomy.

Here's a guide/tutorial - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7pU9L0XybyI&

use a colouring book for anatomy so you can label and colour code parts

Okay there's your problem. You don't need to do this - everything will be taught in a systematic way, so don't worry about that. There is no benefit in trying to teach yourself before starting the course. Enjoy your gap year :yy:

No. It just means the few months before you start the course have been spent feeling overwhelmed (your word!) and unnecessarily pressurised. No prior knowledge is assumed; they will start with the absolute basics and go from there.

I think Democracy is right - it will male so much more sense when you're learning it in the context of physiology etc as well, so why make it more difficult for yourself by starting now when you don't need to.

Imo the most useful thing you can do on a gap year is practise talking to people from as wide a variety of backgrounds as possible and just find out about them and their opinions on things, the challenges they have in their lives, etc. Being good at talking to people will help you massively at med school.
