12 hours

Panicking a lot. Feeling alternately confident and a squidgy mess. It all comes down to this. I have passed every subject for my medical degree. I have signed up and been granted provisional graduation. I have handed in every single last piece of written assessment. All I have to do now is pass one exam. One. 10 years at uni and it all comes down to tomorrow.

Scary scary stuff. No wonder I have heartburn.

20 stations, 10 minutes per station. Any system in the body, and mental illness, any ethical concept, any statistical concept, any disease, any syndrome, any cluster of symptoms and signs, any physical examination, anything could be tested tomorrow.

If you're the Godly type then please chuck in a prayer for me. If you're not please have a drink.

10 years. 1 exam. 16 hours and it will all be over.

Wishing you the very best of luck Jenn.

I know you will be fine, but if it helps I am off to make a sacrifical offering on your behalf to appease the gods of medicine. Now where is mr hissychick, I mean a goat?

PS Hope you don't have to wait too long for exam results :)

Jenn - if I drink anymore, I'm going to ferment.

....oh all right, a dozen more then!

I WILL be thinking of you, and crashing in on hissychick's sacrifice ritual.

I've been thinking of you all day. You're probably done now, or almost.

You will be fine. You will be better than fine. I am sure that all of the knowledge and experience you've gained in the past few years is right where you need it to be, right there in that amazing brain of yours, ready for you to ace your final test.

Today it isn't all over, Jenn. This is where it really starts. You're a doctor!! You did it. :)

Can you possibly know how proud I am of you? Of how proud all of your blogging sisters are of your right now?

I could weep.

Ahh Jenn, I've worked OSCEs and they make even ME nervous! I'm sure you blitzed it; it's the uber controlled environment that really scares.
