This chapter prepares you for the leap between preparing for exams at secondary school and preparing for exams at medical school. The differences in preparation have been broken down into various methods. At university, written exams consist of multiple choice questions, extended matching questions, short answer questions, essays, and others. There will also be the introduction of practical exams in the form of OSCEs, oral presentations, and poster presentations. Top tips and useful resources for preparing as well as examples of written questions have been provided too. There is also advice on dealing with poor results and what those exam results will be used for towards your final qualification.
