I Failed In Final Year Mbbs

There are some things that are hard to take in life. this is one such thing for me. in fact by miles it is the biggest thing for me as i have never ever come so close to accepting something this unprecedented.

Passing the final year and being a doctor is a dream that everyone cherishes. I see my friends so happy. its a landmark. but i am left behind. that landmark would come to me 6 months later now. for what? did i not deserve to pass the exam? may be i will not discuss that as it just brings pain.

 

but let me tell what's bringing me more pain than the result of the stupid exam.

 

the fact that i don't get to be a part of the celebrations.

the fact that my mind keeps wondering what people will think of me now.

the whole idea of suddenly things can change when you least expect. here it was for bad.

and there's the fear of the unknown.

 

i don't want to cry anymore. i cried enough. each time i made myself believe that i have the grasp of things to come. but every now and then my mind wonders how different things might have been. but then this is the ground reality. i got to live with it.

 

And as I am going through all this, if at all I have an option to ask of something, i really want the attitude where I stop thinking about other's perception of me. Please Universe, grant my wish.

****** Update 6th FEb 2011*******

so i visit this after quite a time.... it was on 9th feb last year that i had failed. for those who are asking me,i did pass 6 months later :-)
i will be appearing for AIIMS and AIPGE in less than a year now. Time runs fast. 
I dont know if you people will believe me.... but those 6 months i had were very memorable. I did things which i wouldnt have done otherwise. I used to go for a morning walk. I managed to keep studying. Infact i managed to study a lot more than what i would usualy have.
When on the day of Result the world stood still when i saw "FAIL" .. time has passed quite well since then. But I believe unless I get my target in Entrance Exams my promise to self is incomplete. It was not about feeling good, It was not about passing 6 months later.... It was always about getting The Dream Rank at All India level. And I keep holding on. 
For all those who might have failed, i wish to tell you... may be this is what is going to change you forever. Dont live with somebody else's opinion. Take your time and unleash the best in you. It's Your time now....

Is there any time limit to clear 1st year mbbs? like if we attemp
four times n still flunk im 1st year do v still gt da chanc to reappear

Recently I failed my Ca final exam.. I was so disappointed with myself. I was a good student throughout my entire student life.. and failed the most important and most awaited exam of my life. All my dreams were broken. I cried for the whole day. I cant even describe how it feels to lose something that you've been waiting for so long. I thought dat I'd never become a Ca. I failed my father. I failed myself. I'll be again appearing in exams in may and m so scared. I just hope dat I'd make it through.

Hi, my article on failure in MBBS and overcoming it was published in a magazine, hope this will be helpful<br />
http://medchrome.com/medicalcolleges/student-life/regaining-confidence-failure/

I failed my MBBS1 just last week and now i have to repeat the whole year...its so painful since i needed only 2% to sit for supp exams which am sure i would have passed! Am not really depressed but so dissapointed in myself...and the fact that my best buddy is through to 2nd year...

Is it true that not clearing 1st mbbs in first attempt prevents students from writing PG entrances at prestigious places? :/ AIIMS and so on? What about the USMLE?

Hi...Am an AIIMSONIAN...professors here are saying that 1st prof failures cant even
appear for pg entrances of the apex institutes like AIIMS,JIPMER,PGI etc.
But nothing like that is givenn as the eligibility criteria for AIIMS PG in the prospectus.if somebody knows plz reply wat is the actual rule...

i think experience the same thing today. i am so broken i cant even stand. i failed my final med. i dont know how to go through next coning days

hey guys.. i hae cleared my 1st prof mbbs and now in 2nd prof i tried my level best and still failed all three subjects in the first go... now i have to re take the exam after 40 days in supply exam but i am tired of this dejavu :(

Hi guy I have failed in 1st year for mbbd in physio and biochemistry and I am trying from past 2 and half year and I have not cleared I am scared that this will affect my future and more over seeing my friends in 4th year now and I am still in 1st year make me so depressed and don't wanna go to my college and see them also and they all are enjoying lot plz help me guys I have gave my 1st year exam again and I am waiting for my results

It's perfectly fine to flunk in 2 subjects in 1st year M.B.B.S!!!.... Don't worry & don't get disheartened! :-) I too flunked in Physiology & Biochemistry in 1st year M.B.B.S and I passed both the subjects in 2nd attempt of Supplimentary exam!! I would suggest you to focus and study hard!..Don't give up & don't get depressed!!... Do one thing....gather past 10 years question papers of Physiology & Biochemistry from your college library of your university and make a list of all questions system wise that were asked in those past 10 years university question papers!!! and study only those questions perfectly!!!....make flowcharts and draw diagrams wherever possible!!... I did the same thing and in fact, all medical students do the same thing!...you will then definitely pass! :-)

I m a fourth year student tomorrow is my pedia paper I think I m gonna flunk I m really scared I feel like commiting suicide

I failed in first yr in anatomy......it was very depressing...my...biochem and physio marks....were more than 60%..and some of my batchmates...just passed in all 3...with not more than 60%...i was in depression...but that 6 months....which i was facing....has changed my life...i studied anatomy in detail...where i thought anatomy knowledge....is very useful...for clinical postings....but this time i didnt study 4 marks....i studied 4 knowledge....and now...i firmly believe....by passing xams...by luck ...doesnt make u a good doctor......by gaining knowledge and intrest in the subjects....makes u a good and a successful....doctor.....

hello all. i failed my final mbbs out of sheer fear that i will fail. i have a long history of depression associated with examphobia and like i feared , i failed in all 4 subjects. it was a totally distressing time and i had only one option in front of me- to die. i was totally devastated as all my batchmates had cleared the exam , even the below average guy. my family stood with me and helped me to come back. i had the greatest transformation in my life - i became a pious man and hardworking guy with lots of energy. i studied well and cleared all 4 after 6 months that too with 83% marks- the greatest marks in my university ever. now i am a cardiologist working in usa. i am wondering, what if my attempts at suicide had gone successful ?? so dear friends, dont lose hope and never never never give up. at the end of every tunnel , there is light !!

thats so awesome!!!83%!! how did u study... i mean how many hours a day... ?? did u even sleep...:)

@sana i used to study 8 hours a day. I am a muslim, so my belief in Allah and his capabilities became strongest ever. I was under a psychiatrist's treatment and slowly i recovered. i was so hopeless and without confident, but later i became a man of confidence. i drove out the word "stress" out of my life. Alhamdulillah

wow..so nice...thanks for inspiring...by d way i m going to give my final mbbs exams but ur point of fear is also with me..so i wil try to get over it...

hi sir my name is beno...my final year classes begin next week..i am scared to death..the mere thought of failure makes me so nervous..how do i prepare?? how do i get over this fear??

hey...i wanna sk that u topped wit 83% thts gr8....nd despite getting topped in university didn"t u get the gold medal or some scholarship?

i experience the same thing today. i failed my final med exam. i feel so weak i cant even think now

6 months back i passed all subjects but lost in med practicals.....now I've lost med theory by 2 marks....heights of bad luck...m completely depressed nw.....dunno what 2 do...

In my case, eventhough I used about 10 years to get into final year, I never give up to achieving my ambition.

Due to extended limit in force for mbbs course, this is the 1st time I sat for the final year exam with full of stress, I knw this is the 1st n my last chance in final MBBS, and unfortunately I FAILED! ..

And now, I have no guidline to continuing to become a profession in medical field. I felt so sorry to my parent , they hv been facing such a traumatic stress in financial support for my study, n have to facing the unwanted critisizing from the friends and relatives

Seriously, what can I do now? I'm asking myself, after crying for several day, I'm starting looking for a job at least i.can work and pay back for my study loan.

I 'm seriously interested in aesthetic
medicine, searching another way that to continuing my study by using d.current.4th year result to become a recognised.aesthetic.Dr.

Is that possible? I'm not sure at all, or fall into. the fate that I have to work in the drug company ?

Hi . Myself Ajay Gupta I got admission in 2009 in mbbs now I m still in 2nd year I failed in 2nd year 3time.... First time was detained and 2nd time was admitted in hospital (viral encephalitis) for 13 days so I was not able to give my 2nd attempt and my girlfriend also left me while I was on bed in hospital and at 3rd attempt I was in depression... I don't hav concentration in study.... I just wanna to say"help me"....

I failed my 1st year in anat n physio. Have to give the exams in november!! Never thought this could ever happen. Sir, I have a few questions. Are we allowed to give the entrance exams after MBBS or after internship? And as I'm lagging back by 6 months .. will I have to give my entrance exams with my juniors or can I give it with my ex-batch mates?

Murli you should not really be worrying about your entrances now.but since you've asked the question herm guessing its really bothering u a lot.. so listen the eligibility criteria for wrting entrance is that you'll complete your internship as of 31st march of the yr u'll be joining pg.for example if you clear 4th yr in 2013 and write your pg entrance in jan 2014 you should finish intership in march 31 2014. makes sense?? but since ur a repeater u cn't take exams after 4th yr.. but u must take it after ur internship.if u ve anymore doubts plas feel free to ask. hope ur exams went well

I passed all the subjects in theory and clinics, except paed clinics in which 18 of us were intentionally failed by the psychotic HOD. We have all passed the theory exam, and now with the introduction of the compulsory rural postings, I'm getting impulses of suicide as i can visualize the PG seat drifting away.

My final years mbbs results came out yesterday. I failed surgery. I feel so robbed. I know that I didn't deserve this. I never failed any exam throughout medical school. I had two really hard examiners for my orals. Everyone else had really easy examiners. I know if I had an easy examiner I would have passed. It is killing me right now, to see everyone move ahead and leave me behind. It all seems unfair. I actually knew my work better than other people I know , and they passed. It hurts a lot. I dont know what to do with myself or my time right now. It is the worst feeling ever. Tomorrow is oath taking ceremony. All my friends are going to be there. I wanted to be there so bad. God knows how bad I really wanted this. I can't face anyone right now.

Even im stuck wit ma frst yr mbbs...im so sick n tired f dz....dnt kno hw to handle...oly20 dayz left...guyz plz help me....gimme sum tips to pass...

hello guys <br />
i failed all four subjects <br />
again two months left for exams <br />
i dont know what to do<br />
please give me some advice guys

EXAM EXAMINERS AND EXAM SYSTEM PLAYED FOOTBALL WITH ME....<br />
on the way my medical journey . . .slipp of the track in 2nd mbbs subjects @ Micro...patho ....exam system played M.S.L (LIKE I.P.L its MEDICAL .STUDENT.LEAGUE..for us) with me for 4 years in these two subjects and also my contribution in succumbing in league matches..<br />
then by the grace of failing experience ... my train added all the passed boggies of 2nd mbbs and back on the track ... then again i felt difficult to attach Community medicicne boggie ...and Second season of M.P.L begins for me and existed 2 years .. now i am back on the track with all the passing boggies of mbbs subjects(upto date final -part-1) ... now i am preparing for very final subjects that is ...med,surgry,gyn obs and pediatrics.... ALL THIS YEARS I LEARNT ONLY ONE THING AND ALWAYS ... "there is only one reason for success...and that is hard work ...and we know ...failure has many stories...." i wish all my fellow doctors and medical students only one thing make HARD WORK AND STUDYING IS THE ONLY REASON FOR YOUR SUCCESS... ALL THE BEST GUYS.

After reading your post, I have mixed emotions. 'Shocked' to know it took 4years to complete two 2nd year subjects! and secondly I'm 'Surprised' that you are narrating your failures with boldness and carefree attitude. Its good to you.
About my experience, I'm also a final year mbbs student at present but it took quiet a while to reach this stage. Lost two years without attempting any exam and now going to write final year in coming December 2012 examination.

The last post is quite old i agree,but since d results just got announced again, I passed but not with good grades, I know tat this lamenting over 'poor' marks can be irritating for those who did not make it, but trust me I DO understand...I had a very risky viva and barely made it through, I spoilt all of my holidays worrying about the results and how to face relatives...my results came today, second class d report says but after reading your entry I realise I need to think AHEAD... I am going to do just that....Infact even after I passed I still think about how I am going to face friends and relatives ...so nothing quite has changed...I now realise its all in the attitude....it's all simply in your attitude.
