Done and done!

Well, we are done for the year!

The exam was okay, but really a little non-specific. Thus, whether or not I pass or do brilliantly depends entirely on the marking guide and who looks at my paper.

One of the questions asked us to draw a diagram illustrating the rule of 9s in burns. I feel a little embarrassed that I didn't memorise that one prior to the exam. At least I remembered that the genital area is worth 1% and that the back and front are 9% each (I think). Meh.

Without being immodest, I studied really hard for this one - harder than for any of the other areas. I don't know if it paid off for the exam, but at least I now know a lot more about surgery than I would have otherwise, and feel much more prepared for internship and to be a doctor. After all, isn't that what really matters?

Hopefully we will find out soon whether or not we need a resit. I think my paper would get through a remark if it doesn't pass muster first time. Plus, I don't think I can learn any more than I did, so even if I do need a resit, it won't involve 12 hours of study a day.

Hooray! Bring on Christmas and fourth year!

Congratulations, Girl :D. Time to go be a normal person for a while! I hope it's a lovely December.

Thank-you! Same to you - enjoy your time off before you start work. :)

I'm going to work (but only 4 days a week), read novels, play the piano and draw. Not to mention enjoying Christmas.

Woohoo! I'm only just re-discovering the true joys of being a student again: university holidays! Enjoy a long lazy summer.

Thanks! I'm working, but it will still be a nice break from uni. :)
