Guide to do portfolio FAST(and good*)!

Being a student of BPharm(Hons) in International Medical University, portfolios is one of the thing that may haunted by it everynight before you sleep.

One of the toughest time was in Semester 4. We were given 9 portfolios. Lets to some calculation.
We have 14 weeks in a semester. Basically, week one we will have the briefing for the portfolios. Only during the briefing we will get question and topic for the portfolios. Final submittion is on the 12th week. So basically we have only ONE week to finish each portfolio.

You may think that one week is kinda long to produce a 10 - 20pages porfolio of learning but think again, it is a week with classes from 9am in the morning all the way to 5pm in the evening. There will also be Problem Based Learning(PBLs) and laboratory session(which means there will be lab report for you to hand in) and not forgetting class tests throughout the semester. Hence, it is not surprising that we would have to finish a portfolios within 2 to 3 days. I say again, its 'we would have to' and not 'we wish' or ' we want' or even 'we purposely'.

My very pack time table.

When the juniors came to me and asked about the portfolios, I told them that we have to finish it in 2 to 3 days, they were so shock. Now, you all know why.

Ok, back to the point. After 6 semester of BPharm and finishing 29 portfolios, I think I can (or I hope I am qualify to) write a guide of doing portfolios.

My draft. It's a "draft" ok?

Thicker than phone directory.
