* I am in my first year of medical school and I get a letter informing me that my results are no longer valid and I will have to re-sit my A levels. It’s up to me to tell my university about this and I decide to keep quiet.

* I am taking my exams and have forgotten to revise a really important topic.


Whenever this happens, it seems to take longer and longer for me to register and accept that I’m well into my adulthood and university education. My A levels were far more stressful than any other exam I have ever taken as I had more to lose at the time (and I was on the verge of a mental breakdown, another story for another time). Now that my finals are approaching I wonder if as a doctor, I’ll wake and have to reassure myself in a ‘same same, but different’ context.
