Staring into the Abyss
November 18, 2013 § 4 Comments
We’re one day out from our Anatomy midterm and after that, there will be no stopping the inevitable. Wednesday is Anatomy, Thursday boasts our weekly Physiology quizzes and next Thursday, our weekly Physiology quizzes AND our second Biochemistry midterm, covering lipid and protein metabolism. Then we have one week with just our Physiology quizzes and the last week of school will close out big with a Hungarian end-of-semester exam, Physiology lab exam and Biochemistry lab exam (Skjalg and I will also have an exam in our elective course).
There may be one more exam for me on top of all that. If I pass Wednesday’s anatomy exam, I will be exempt from a pin-test covering brain anatomy and dorsal regions of the body. If I don’t pass, I will need to take this pin-test in two weeks time. Normally, the dissection exam is part of the semi-final, but this year, they have made it part of the semester exams. If we pass all the midterms, we don’t have to do it. Over 100 people have failed either the first or second midterm, so it will be interesting to see how this ends up….It’s hard to believe that we have to go through all this to just get to exam period!
Skjalg and I have been studying together for this anatomy exam – possibly the first time we have studied together since first semester. We have quite different study tactics and ways of learning, but so far it is going really well. Hopefully it pays off!
That’s what’s going on on our monotonous end! Wish us luck 😉
