Visa Guidelines is back

Alhamdulillah, I got married to a lovely lady by the name of Sarah and we're enjoying our new phase in life since that momentous day.

And yeah, I graduated from the University of Nottingham and thus, escaping from the evil clutches of my medical school. woot2! probably needs a post on this as well but yeah, maybe later.

at the bottom of this blog, there is an article on visa guidelines for medical students graduated from UK medical schools under MARA scholarship who are planning to work as an FY1 doctor in the UK.

After all, it was my visa guidelines which i made 5 years ago that helped me to get to know a lot of people and for some, have now become my close friends. And it helped a lot of other people as well. So I hope that this guideline would ease your efforts a bit. Visa application is always confusing.

one last time

It's November!! Time is running out..

Dear readers, I worry about a lot of things. One of them was the audit that I needed to produce by the end of my 4 Week Primary Care attachment. I did an audit already in January for my SSM (Special Study Module) in Rheumatology and I made it clear to my supervisor I wasn't in the mood of presenting/publishing it because it was during the time when I found out I had the triple failures. So yeah, it was similar around this time as well. I wasn't aiming to win any prize. I've only started writing the audit this Sunday because I had so many other things to handle and I wasn't even sure on how to write it cause it's different than the one I did for Rheumatology. The first audit I did was mainly on numbers and figures. So, it was pretty easy for me to manipulate the data. This one; it was on "Assessment of paediatric referrals". Like, what on Earth could I write about that?? So, it was a little bit of a guesswork and a little bit of a risk because I didn't want to do something which my GP (General Practitioner) didn't expect from me. 

So, I went in today to my GP surgery (aka clinic) for one last time since it's the last day of my Primary Care attachment and I joined his clinic from early in the morning cause he asked me to. The only reason why I had to come was to get the result for my audit so yeah, I was a bit anxious today. 

When I arrived, he revealed to me that he thought it was really good. So, I thought, "Ok, I think I'll pass". After a few moments in his clinic, he said "Let's mark your audit". And I was like, "Ok, this is it". He opened up my audit and commented that it's exactly what he's hoping for saying that he's going to use it for the meeting and he acknowledged the use of colours in my audit. And I felt, "Yeah!! Finally, someone appreciates my choice of colours in my coursework." Lol. Then he began filling in the marking sheet. I tried to look away but I just can't, haha. I saw him ticking "Excellent" for every criteria and I was surprised :O

I think he was just being nice. Well, he is really really nice, funny and friendly. So, that probably contributed to this result, haha. And then I realized that I am now technically a nominee for a prize :O because to be a nominee, I need to attract full marks from my GP.

In Final Year of Medicine in Nottingham, there are 7 prizes available for students and one of them is the Vale of Trent Clinical Governance Prize which is awarded to the "student judged to have written the best report during the year 5 Primary care attachment".

Try and look at this list and guess which of these is the one that I'm actually aiming for :P

I am a nominee! Yeay, alhamdulillah :D For something that I didn't plan for anyway, haha. 

I meant, I did aim to become a nominee in 3rd Year for CFU project but though I didn't become one, my marks were good alhamdulillah. In 4th Year, I aimed to become a nominee for Paediatrics and I succeeded but I failed to meet the requirement to move on to the next stage - obtaining a first class mark overall for the module. (If you didn't know what happened to me, I failed the Knowledge exam last year. So on the last week of this month, I have to face my demons. Okay, that's a bit exaggerated. Maybe just a little demon because it's Paeds..comel, haha). In 5th Year, this is definitely the very last coursework we ever had to do and ever had to submit to turnitin, inshaAllah. Tak nak coursework dah. Lepas ni ada elective report je and benda2 kecik. And what a better way to end it with a nomination? Huhu, again alhamdulillah. Not planning to win it though because after all, it was done in 2-3 days O_o 

I even have a 0% plagiarism level :D

The main point is, no matter what you do, Allah is the one who will award you for your efforts. You can try and spend weeks on your coursework or exams or whatever your endeavour may be, but if He doesn't want to give you the result that you want, then you just won't get them. Because He has a better plan for you. Just like what He did to me in January. But strive you must..because that's our responsibility.

And this excellent ending of my Primary Care attachment; I shall take it as one of my silver linings :)

So Adlan Wafi, let's strive for #RememberNovember so we can get back to focus on Final Year of Medicine...
