ahhh i honestly dont know what to do like I am at my wit's end. so in may I sat my first year med exams and I found them terrible - and terrible would be an understatement. i was crying after every single one and I was admitted to hospital before my first exam so that was loveleyy . my mental health was so bad and so was my physical health. i applied for mit circs but my lovely uni doesn't add on any marks they just allow your resits to be counted as first sitting.

anyways, I am going back to my home country soon bc a family member has fallen seriously ill and I'm so worried because i should be revising.. results come out in 2 weeks and that's when I'll be 10000 miles away probs not doing any work because I'll be so busy. i come back to UK 2 days before resits. i really don't want to risk getting kicked out because I worked my butt off to get here and idk. why is med school so hard.

sorry for the rant but i would appreciate it if any med students offer any advice/experiences of finding exams hard and miraculously doing well bc that would make me feel a whole lot better.

Can I ask whether you really want to become a medical doctor or was a choice motivated by other factors?

It was my own choice. but the difficulty of medical school has shattered my passion for it, I'm finding it hard to carry on

Do you like your studies? What I mean is do you like the lectures and the courses you have taken so far?

I find the lectures interesting so I try my best to go to all teaching sessions. there's a lot of components I don't like purely because I find them harder, but overall I do enjoy the course yes. It is just rlly stressful and really time-consuming and overall I feel like I am not coping with the workload properly

As I have said on the interview threads - you are never the ideal person to gauge your own interview / exam performance.

You tend to remember the bad / incorrect answers and forget the ones you get right. So enjoy your trip (sorry if it's not in the best circumstances) and try and forget about the exam - there's nothing you can do about it now!

Similarly, if you have to resit - just remember that not a single medical student / doctor have not failed (whether it's an exam or a patient) in their career. Failure doesn't define you, it's how you react to it that does.

Thanks ecolier for such nice words, really appreciate it with how down I'm feeling at the minute
The thing is there is only 1 week between finding out my results and resitting, and I will be away in a place where I cant even revise:cry:but as you said, there's really nothing I can do now and hopefully I miraculously pass

also PRSOM !!
