The Drop

This is the drop. The final jump. It’s been a long long ride to get here and I have just one thing left to do.

I wrote both my knowledge papers. I have a good feeling about this year’s papers in general. So all that’s left is the scariest part of being a medical student. The last jump. The final drop.

I am to be tested for my capacity to perform Paediatric Medicine at a safe  level. I have my OSCEs and Viva tomorrow. And on Sunday I do the same for Obstetrics and Gynaecology.

I am not nervous. I just have enough butterflies in my stomach to make a lepidopterist very happy. All that’s left is going through my notes on the way to the exam and trusting to luck and skill.

I leave you with this….
