What a wake-up call the past 2 weeks have been. As we really get going with orals and projects, I have to say that I’m pretty worried about what I might see in my envelope in August. It seems like there isn’t enough time left to cover everything, at least not enough to secure the points needed for Medicine. Sure, I’m confident that I could hit the 450-500 range right now but breaking that barrier? Valerie, you got it in one: Mockadoodledoo.
I’m a week back into the swing of school, correcting mocks, getting results (which I’ll post when I get them all)… it’s been pretty busy. I hope it went well for everyone, there can be a bit more open discussion in the coming weeks about the papers, wouldn’t want to spoil it for anyone that doesn’t want it to be.
Now to deal with the proverbial elephant hiding in this post. Saturday 25th. HPAT. I’ve done the practice test. 71/110. Section 1 and 2 are definitely my strongest on the sample and that was under proper timing conditions. 3 is a bit of mess, although I’m well aware that Saturday is going to be tough. Harder questions, more harder questions and probably HPAT staff whipping us and spraying us with boiling, salty water.
So over the past few days I’ve really been considering what my contingency plan is. Ok, summer consists of Job and Party On with Added Oxegen. But after? I don’t know, I’m seriously considering repeating if things don’t go to well. Either that or take up a course I kind of sort of want. Still, plenty of time. You guys?
Good luck to everybody, Mocks, HPAT or otherwise!
