Hi doctor,

I am a student and I have been good at studies always. And I want to be a doctor but I somehow could not manage to get a seat in government medical college. I did not work hard enough. I am 21 now. My parents are very supportive and I am preparing for exam. But I am really scared of everything. I know I am stronger than this but how can I stay calm and happy during this process?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your problem. It is actually very tough phase. But all you need to do is gather yourself back, tell yourself that you can and will be able to do it. Try this. Make a full-proof plan. Executive with full motivation. If you feel that there were some mistakes you did in the past, then rectify them. Do not give up. Study in group or in library if you cannot study alone or get distracted. Make short term plans. You can have one or two counseling sessions if you want.
