Writing the Medical Examinations

  1. 1. SKILLS  IN  WRITING  THE  EXAMINATION                                                                                                                                                                                                                Every  year  all  the  Students  face  the  challenge  of  examinations,  when  the  time  approaches  they  are  alone  and  have  to  fight  the  battle  with  knowledge  and  confidence.  Medical  education  is  so  complex  all  the  MBBS  students  must  realise  they  should  know  some  thing  of  every  thing,  not  necessary  to  know  all  minute  details.  When  we  were  Medical  students  the  subjects  were  little  and  time  is  longer  to  study.  Above  all,  we  had  committed  teachers.  I  request  all  the  students  to  have  confidence  and  knowledge  to  reproduce  the  answers  is  just  a  recall  exercise.  Just  think  to  follow  few  guidelines  you  will  make  it    Clear handwriting, organized thoughts and practicing are yourweapons. Use them well. If you hand writing not up to minimalexpectations write the important words in Broad Capitals thenthe examiner gets the idea that you know the importance of theanswers you have written.  Remember that the time given for the exam is more thanenough. A 2 -3 minutes for a mark, which means that, is the deal.Most of the papers like Microbiology or Pathology are set for 40 to50 marks, which you have to answer in 120 minutes As a result;you should not take less than that on each mark. You should dothe following,Attempt with best Answers you know are familiar even though it isa short notes or a brief answer, Read the question. Read it carefully, and underline the keywords. With a pencil many time it is instructed not to write anything on the question paper Think about the answer. Rephrase it in your mind in a way that covers the needed answer.
  2. 2. Write the answer down. Start with an opening sentence, anduse short ones do not complicate the matters, No examiner LIKEto know your complex ideas,A well-written ANSWER is the one that you do not go back toit when moving on. Which means that, you should write the bestanswer from the first Lime? This will give you extra time in theexam, and will increase your chance in getting more marks.The examiners will not place an irrelevant question inthe exam. All the papers are set as like your semester modelsfor that reason, remember that you can solve all the questions ifyou studied and memorized well. Remember the importance ofSeminars you have attended and presented the topics you mighttake more time on one of the questions; however, you will get itsanswer if you analyze it a little.Write as many Diagrams, and flow charts as possible whichwill reduce strain on the examiner, he will be happy to award moremarks than you deserve.Do not brood on the questions which you do not know well, andleave to the last hour, if you start worrying you will not able toanswers well known answers and you loose the GOLDEN HOUR stthat 1 HOUR of Examination which can make or break yoursuccess.Do not believe in help from others around you, Please rememberyou are under observation and I do not think your neighbor isbetter than you.Please remember 20% of the questions in any Examination areless known to even the best students, try your recall if you areregular to the classes you can make it.Never forget you are all becoming Doctors try to write theClinical importance of the Question.Examinations are path to progress in Life, face withpositive spirit
