Medical School Finals (as told by gifs)
1.) Look at your grade and realize that if you do well on the final, you could have B’s and A’s in your classes. Entrench yourself in the library in order to make that happen–after all, how much could you really have forgotten? This won’t be hard.
2) At first you feel good–you are motivated, and it turns out you remember more than you thought you would! But then (duh duh duh)…you start looking over biochemistry and its like:
3.) Ok, ok…don’t panic! Everything is fine. You have three days, and you are super smart. You got into medical school, and you can get yourself out of it (or something like that). You just have to buckle down. Besides, do you really need an A? No, of course not–B’s are more your style anyway.
4.) Oh, what is this physiology? Did we even cover this material? Quick, memorize as many smart sounding words as you can! You only have two days left and you still have six more subjects–what have you been doing all this time?
4) Biochem and Phys might have been a little rough, but you are doing microbiology now and YOU ROCK. Only 24 hours to go and you have hit your stride!
5.) But BAM! You’ve hit the brick wall and lost all your motivation. Where did it go? You swear you just had it, but suddenly the siren call of Facebook is nearly deafening.
6.) But you have to power through. You haven’t even made it through all of those anatomy clinical correlations you know will be on the test. Just study until 10pm and you can stop. Really, what would you learn after 10 anyway? Just stick it out until then.
7.) And suddenly its 8AM and you are about to start your very first medical school final! This is going to go so well. You studied so much. And for the first couple of questions, it is as though you are a genius! You know all of these answers!
8.) But then you realize that YOU KNOW NOTHING. Are these even words? Why is no one else freaking out?
9) Then you hit that moment where you are so close to the end that you seriously consider answering “C” for the last 20 questions and heading home early.
10.) It was totally worth it! Two weeks of studying cumulating in an 8 hour final exam and YOU ARE DONE! Give yourself a pat on the back and sleep for the next three days!
Merry Christmas everyone! Starting now, I refuse to talk about anything involving school until the new semester starts!
