Recently I heard a “tsismis” about a group of freshmen who paid P11T for a copy of their final exams in one of their subjects. I don’t know if it’s true but come on; I paid my dues when I failed last semester! Shouldn’t this people pay their dues as well? If this is true I hope they get KO (kicked out). That’s the most stupid thing to do and a very stupid excuse of not studying. And you are here in a MedSchool, pursuing a very dignified career; didn’t you just tarnish your credibility? Tsk tsk tsk!
And because of this, there was a memo sent by the dean, insisting to maintain a very high passing rate, including to us sophomores and not using a curve in determining passing grades. And lastly, all exams shouldn’t include recall questions from previous exams. F*ck! That was like 30 items bonus in every exam.
I also heard the dean fired the person who works at the mimeograph (the one who makes copies of the exams). That is just a horrible shame and all of us are suffering from that utter stupidity.
How did they get caught? I asked a freshman and said that the group who got the copy has very unconvincing scores, where professors doubted. Scores almost the same as what the scholars usually gets. It was said that the “cheaters” were at the bottom of the batch’s ranking. In my conclusion, someone squealed… someone who didn’t get a fare share of the copy. hehehe
Hay, please people! Grow up! We are not in highschool, this is a post Graduate course and some of you are maybe licensed. Act professional! Please!!!
Promoboards short for Promotion Boards is what most med students here are waiting for. When we were freshmen, there was a roster of names where people pass all subjects and promoted to 2nd year, another roster of names are people who still need to complete some exams. And lastly a roster of names who need to see the Coordinator immediately – it’s a list where you don’t wanna see your name. Sadly this year, for us 2nd year, you have to look by department, unlike last year there’s only one bulletin board for that. And unlike last year, when your name is not in the roster, it’s either you passed or failed. You have to figure out on your own if your scores are higher or lower than the person listed to take the completion.
Wish me luck guys and I hope I can completely enjoy my vacation.
