So guys whats your plan for the last few weeks ? I really have no idea. I started with hopefully my last read of kaplan lectures last week. Have read behavioral sciences. N mastered my biostat skills. Plus i have revised half of physio kaplan notes. Today im doing genetics. From kaplan notes. Hope to complete them today.

@drmano I know this exam takes too much
Try taking a short break may be you can party for 1 day
Hang out with friends
Or go to a beach that's really refreshing for me
If you want something short you can trying going to the gym for half an hour
Believe me you will again feel that adrenalin rush
