I just had the results of a practice exam (one I took in December during a week end, Saturday and Sunday morning and afternoon), and I did pretty well. There were students from all over France taking that exam, and I was 1368th out of 4773!

I took this because at the end of the year, all the 6th year med students of France take a national exam, and depending on the rank, you get to choose your specialty and where you'll be an intern. So, right now I'm in the first third which is pretty good, even if it won't get me the very demanded specialties. I'll have to work harder for that, if I want to do them!

I'm really happy, but a little worried because usually when I get good grades I start working less and that's something I absolutely should not do. Hopefully, I'll do as well for the next practice exams (and the real one too).

That's wonderful!

You know what actually worked for me when I was in school? As lame as it sounds, I channeled Hermione. I thought if a fictional character can do it, then why can't I?

And that's how I graduated with honours :)

You can do it. Consider where you placed and aim to beat it on the real thing.

Wow, that's an unusual technique. I have to admit, I never thought about channeling fictional characters. It might make working a little more fun, though!

Wow, congrats! Perhaps a bit late. I know you'll do well when those exams come. :D

Thanks! It's stressful, but since I still don't know what I want to do later on, I'm not as worried as those who know they have to be in the top 500 to get what they want.
