Learning is a profoundly personal phenomenon yet has always been conducted in groups. Each student has a unique way of learning and understanding concepts. They also have their own pace of learning, which can sometimes not match the classroom teaching pace. MBBS teaching-learning, given the vastness of the curriculum, things occur at a breakneck speed. This can sometimes be unsettling for many students resulting in them trying to catch up to what is taught in class and leading to stress. Many students search for that ‘sweet spot’ of learning pace, which has to be seen with other things like maintaining a balanced study and personal life balance.
