If There Is A Will…
There Is Surely A Way…
Today’s paper of Gynaecology is a bit better than yesterday’s Obstetrics. A sigh of relief. =)
Obs. questions are quite unexpected for all of us. Among the questions asked :
Short note (any 3):
- Hydramnios (increased secretion of the amniotic fluid).
- Prerequisites for outlet forceps delivery.
- Perineal tear.
- Ventouse delivery.
- Traumatic postpartum hemorrhage (PPH).
- Complications of molar pregnancy.
- Foetal condition monitoring during intrapartum period.
At first, I was hoping they would ask about normal delivery process, or anything that is common in medical practice. Then question about instrumental delivery(forceps delivery) came out of which I prepared less for the topic. So, I left the question. While for long note, I knew something about molar pregnancy but they asked the complications, where I had to think further and use common sense wisely.
As for today, the Gynaec. questions asked including : Clomiphene citrate, Progestasert, causes of postmenopausal bleeding, tuberculous salpingitis, candidial vaginitis, normal physiology of menstrual cycle and also acute pelvic inflammatory diseases (acute PID).
We found that the questions are not that complicated compared to Obs. Yes, at least we may attempt something as far as we knew what the question is all about. If we doesn’t know the specific answer like the well-written textbook, we have to use logical thinking to solve it as long as it makes sense.
One of my colleagues said, “Hopefully the examiner will be lenient to us when they check our paper.”
They are human being also. They are not robots. They have feelings, sad, happy, joyous attitude. They are not doing things so strictly like robots. Imagine if the robots replace the task of correcting examination papers. How horrible could it be right? haha
At least, when human sees other’s effort to do something, they will give others the chance to succeed in life. They still have mercy upon us, eventhough they are ‘rude’ or hot-tempered in characters.
For the past papers that I went through, most of them were based on the logical thinking and common sense. That’s why I worried whether I could make it or not. Because the things that we wrote represent ourselves, our effort so far.
But, I strongly believe that, if we make the best effort in anything we do, God will grant our wishes. It’s the effort that counts. Do not think about the results yet. The effort we make will please our God, while the passing in examination is considered as the ‘profit’ of the effort.
Last but not least, in whatever we do, do it whole-heartedly and joyfully. Have a strong faith that our effort will bear ‘a good and delicious fruit’ one day, when the time comes.
p/s: Paediatrics on the way. One more paper to go!!
