I know that everyone has bent over backwards to get ready for the first block exam of the semester.
Some of you are feeling like your head is not where it should be at this point.
While others of you are feeling quite confident.
Nobody has a distinct advantage over anyone else here at AUC.
Everyone here is under the same great deal of pressure.
Just remember that nobody has tied you down and forced you to do this. This was all your decision.
Try to make the right decisions.
Keep your eyes on the goal. We will get there eventually. Just ask those who have gone before us and whose footsteps we follow in.

Your hard work will have great rewards.
After the exam, if this is your friend, pat him on the back and congratulate him on a job well done.
If your friend has gone down in flames, be sure to give them encouragement and let them know that there will always be another test.
Whatever you do, do not ridicule someone who has not done as well as you.
If all goes well, you will make it to 5th, (6th or 7th for some) and get to do the genital exams.

No matter what, always understand that we are all very fortunate for the opportunity to become doctors. There are many less fortunate that did not make it into medical school. If your friends look like they are feeling down, help them to put a smile on their face.
Good luck to all on exams and remember to never give up......Doctor Monkey
