Do you have any advice on where to study B and C topics from?
Many B and C topics are covered in my paeds 1 notes (which I've rewritten since last year). Otherwise, Silje/Michelle/Lee notes seem good too.
Thank you for your work. When is your exam? Could you update us? Mine is close and I’m not sure what to expect.
My exam was today. It went well. I will write a complete exam experience tomorrow. 🙂
Congratulations you little shit. 🙃
