I have never bombed anything this badly which makes sense since Cambridge is the most challenging course I have done so far.

Has anybody else had the same experience and what did they have to do afterwards?

All replies will be much appreciated.

Isn't a 3rd still a pass?

It is but I was wondering if people who had got thirds had to retake the anatomy or biochemistry module for example.

Your best bet is to speak to your DoS. It might not be something you want to do right now, but I'd really recommend it. They're the ones who'll know and be able to advise you on your next steps.

From my limited knowledge (And as I said, your DoS is the expert, so please check with them!), you are allowed to resit the 2nd MB exams once if you have not met the pass mark. There are typically no resits for Tripos exams. You might find this page and the Medic handbook useful.

Hope this helps
