    How much harder is Ross compared to MERP?

    Advertisements



    Hey im currently in the April 2018 merp class. We just finished our first MINI exam. So far, its been the hardest thing ive ever done academically, but surprisingly its been very doable. I was just wondering how much harder Ross mini exams are compared to MERP minis? I do realize the material will be presented at a much faster rate, but are the exams at Ross more straightforward or do they require more higher order thinking?

    I'm sure things have changed over the years, however I will say that the minis on the island are harder than the MERP minis. It's not easy to quantify how much harder, however the amount of material and the sheer pace at which it is presented to you is significantly greater on the island.

    That being said, MERP can provide you with a solid knowledge base and (hopefully) allow you to develop good study habits that will be helpful for your transition to 1st semester.

    I would agree. It's been almost 10 yrs for me since MERP but if you can do MERP you will have to work about 25-50% harder for the island but it is doable. Concepts aren't all overly difficult in medical school it's the sheer volume of material to retain in a short time.
