The Scottish Schools’ Orientation Camp for Singaporeans

Hey guys! It’s been almost 5 months since my last post and yes, I have been given the opportunity to continue writing about my journey in Dundee for another year; which is awesome btw! Ok, to start with a quick update: my exam results came, didn’t do as well as I would have wanted but I passed; year 2 MBChB here I come!
