Highs and Lows

Day 30 : Highs and Lows of this past month ! Lows  Exams. I don't test well.  Some people are able to elicit joy from the thought of writing exams but I am the exact opposite. Exams are strange for me because I feel that they don't test your knowledge properly. They make me stress [...]

Types of Medical Students : Exam Edition

Lily in Prague
