Thus, based on these facts, how can one ever decide the destiny of student as regards his performance in those 3 hours. It is awful to see that your intelligence is finally graded based on your performance in those 3 hours – “He is a brilliant boy – he scored 80% in his first year.” She is a duffer, she barely managed to pass 1st year”. What ever it is, let me tell you that this rule definitely does not hold true in case of medical education.
Because being a doctor does not mean getting high percentages in your exams. But it is more to do with how well you understand your patient, your mastery over your clinical skills and a good humane approach to mankind. Of course, you do need a good support from your theory background, but that is not the deciding
So my friends out there, don’t lose hope if you have not performed up to your expectations in the exams which have gone by, remember that there is always a next time, grow up, come out of the egg shell that you are still sitting in, widen your horizons and prepare yourself for emergency out as a ‘DOCTOR’ and not merely as a M.B.B.S. degree holder.
But as you are preparing for this task ahead, don’t forget to keep a track of the year, or one fine day you may find yourself sitting in the same examination hall with anxious eyes and trembling hands, patiently waiting for those dreadful 3 hours. !!!
