End of CEGEP.

You just finished your CEGEP with straight A’s. Congratulations! But now, you need to choose what will be your future. The rest of your life depend on the choices you will make in the next few months. You have applied in two universities and each one has their advantage.

Choice 1 : You choose to go to UdeM, you already have a home near, your family in Longueuil where you can live regardless of the choice of courses you will make, but none of your friends go there.

Choice 2 : You choose to go to the University of Sherbrooke where all your friends go, but where you need to find a place to live.


Welcome to UdeM, now that you know where you are going to live, you must choose the field of study that will lead you to an ideal job.

Choice 1 : Against all odds your cote R of 34 allows you to enter in medicine. No doubt, you want to become a doctor, there is nothing more prestigious!

Choice 2 : Pharmacology ... Why not, it's a good job and besides learning everything by heart, you do not see where the difficulties are.

Choice 3 : Medicine would be perfect for you, but you loved animals more than humans so spend your life taking care of them is perfect.


The mid-term exam scores for your first session have been released and you are far from the best.

Choice 1 : It doesn’t matter, you don’t have to be the best. You party all night long, you know you need to rest and get out of school sometimes.

Choice 2 : You spend all your free time doing all the exercises again and again. Family and friends are not important for now, your career depends on your grades.


Your life is perfect! You agreed to be in the average, you have made new friends, and your courses are very interesting, but exams are coming soon.

Choice 1 : All’s going well, you know your subject ... You listened and asked questions in class, you don’t need to study. The party continues!

Choice 2 : Anyway, most of your friends prefer to study, so you join them at the library. A little study cannot hurt you.


Your exams were catastrophic, you even had to copy on your neighbors. You couldn’t get away with it, you were surprised, and you are expelled from the program for plagia.

Choice 1 : FAIL

False study.

It was too late, you spent the last week at the library, but your lack of work is irrecoverable. Your grades allow you to stay in the program, but you realize that you don’t have the strength to survive this program. Maybe a little BAC in biology would be more adequate.

Choice 1 : FAIL


You're at your fifth coffee in two hours, all your homework are going well, but the last few weeks with just 3 hours of sleep a night have been exhausting. If by any chance you do not take coffee, you know you are going to sleep and potentially skip an important lesson or miss time to do everything.

Choice 1 : Impossible to survive! You begin a strict sleep cycle of 9 hours a night.

Choice 2 : A friend told you about "Wake Up", medicines that allow you to stay awake throughout the exams.

Choice 2 : You decide to join the social group of the university, maybe you will find something interesting to do.

Choice 1 : You give up everything. No more boredom to learn all the names and effects of drugs. You decide to change your life and go on an adventure.

Choice 2 : Do not give up, everything is fine, why should you stop everything when nothing goes wrong?
