Recently I have been feeling really frustrated and stressed. I shouldn't be stressed. I am on my break after finishing my first university semester. But I am still studying.

There is a test I have to do on the 27th of July in order for me to be eligible to transfer to most health courses like Optometry and Medicine, known as the undergraduate medicine and health sciences admission test (UMAT). Right now the thought and possibility of me doing medicine is very unlikely so I felt it would be better for me to try to transfer into Optometry and see where my future possibilities can lead to after that. A transfer from a science degree into Medicine is a huge leap.

I sat the UMAT last year and did horribly. This year I felt like I should be more prepared so purchased packages online where I can do practice exams. In the package I bought, they gave 10 practice exams. So far, I've barely gotten over 50% in 4 exams.

I have a friend who is doing Optometry and planning to transfer into Medicine. So she is also sitting the UMAT this year. Even though she didn't buy the same package, she has access to other papers from tutors. Nearly everyday she complains about how she isn't doing much and how low the marks she is getting. As far as I know, she has done more papers than I have and she has been getting around 60% for each paper she has done.

I know none of this is her fault, but I am starting to get really frustrated. Frustrated that my marks aren't picking up. Frustrated that someone who is getting better marks than me is complaining about how low her marks are. Also frustrated about how slow I read. 3hours for a 134 question exam and I sometimes find myself spending 10 minutes on one question.

On a lighter note, I will be going to camp! YAY! So by the time you guys see this I might still be in bed or would have left already. Look forward to my camp related posts!


And the South Korea trip is coming up. My mates and I don't know what to do. Any suggestions?
