July 2022: the worst results in the history of this exam
The results of themedical entrance examination in July 2022 were the worst This is not surprising given the unfortunate shortcomings that have accumulated over the past three years at the end of secondary school. This is hardly surprising if one considers the deficiencies that have unfortunately accumulated over the last three years at the end of secondary education. Indeed, secondary education has suffered for three years from the health measures put in place following the 'COVID' pandemic. This explains why many students leaving the rheumatology programme have a level below that required for entry into medicine and pharmacy.
How to prepare?
Many students are looking for formulas to 'preparing for the entrance exam .' However, does a global and collective preparation, in all branches, make sense? Is it not preferable to identify the subjects to be strengthened first, and then deal with them by subjectin a way that intensive and strictly individual? Indeed, although many students have deficiencies, they do not necessarily have them in all the subjects covered by the entrance exam. It therefore seems preferable to focus preparation on those sectors where there are objective shortcomings.
Working by subject
The principle is (1) take stock of knowledge of the student in the subject concerned, (2) fill in the gaps in theory(3) the "driller" in exercises which are close to the conditions of the real examination until they lead him/her to a successful outcome in the next edition of the medical entrance examination (27 August 2022). Even if it is difficult, the entrance exam is within the reach of any student who is prepared with seriousness and determination. We should not underestimate the 'challenge', while remaining aware that it is within our reach!
