Although every year matters in medical school, the first year in particular is very important to us as it helps us figure out the teething problems in studying. This year also introduces us to new technical terms, it tests our fundamentals, what we studied in school, and enables us todevelop strong understanding of the basics. If you feel like you did your best to understand concepts during the year, revision should be able to help you remember what you’ve already learnt quickly. However, if you have gaps in your knowledge, I highly recommend to get the subscription from e-learning platform and watch the videos regarding the areas you are not very confident about. I personally use Lecturio in medical school. I have stuck with it from year 1 and I am so glad I found iut about it in early stages of my student life. Lecturio is a platform which offers your everything you need to achieve you academic potential in a single platform. It is definitely worth its’ price. Video lectures are conducted by the professors teaching in world’s leading universities. Questions are very spot on, spaced repetition space is absolutely incredible, and of course, Qbank which gives you clinical correlations on every question widens your thinking skills and makes you think outside the box. Definitely check it out. They also have study schedules so you can use it for your exam prep. Otherwise, just have a look at what they have ro offer and make your own timetable, that’s what I would do on your place.
