I've not long returned to university, ready to sit my first set of end-of year exams. I have a little over a week until my first one, which is on basic clinical techniques. Despite revising continuously since my little break in Shropshire, it's beginning to feel like there is not enough time to cover everything. However, there is a feeling of unity between all of the first years - we all feel the same and, unlike the days in school where every student was in it for themselves, we all are helping each other. It is of course in my nature to help when I feel I can, but it is actually very impressive that all 80-90 of us are taking the time to cover individual topics in detail and share what they have done with everyone in the year. We have even utilised Facebook to organise revision sessions, ask questions (even set polls as to test each others knowledge) as well as provide support to those that have spent the last three days in a caffeine-filled state trying to memorise model answers to potential questions (that may or may not have been me...). It really something that has motivated us to keep going and if it works well for the first year, I'm sure we will continue supporting one another throughout the rest of our time at university and hopefully in the careers ahead of us.
