My name is Doca Marida Muchanga, I from Mossurize, I am 22 years old and I am a 3 year student of Medicine.

About my student report 2023-2024, it was a year of great challenges, as everyone knows I am repeating the third year, so at first it was very difficult to adapt to the new reality, but I managed. We started the school year on April 10,2023, and we will finish on March 1,2024. In the first semester of the year I managed to pass all the blocks in normal exams, I had no recurrences Thank God, and now I am in the second semester ,already doing the last block which is 3.7,but so far we still have no results from blocks 3.5 and 3.6. I believe I will pass, because I studied a lot. Our practical exam (OSCE) is marked for February 24,2024.

I believe that I will pass the year, and I am definitely already in the fourth year.

I want to thank all members of DFM very much for trusting me, and also for not giving up on me. I will be a doctor. Thank you also for the computer, it is helping a lot.

Without  no more subject matter. My deepest greetings to all the members of the DFM.










My name is Doca Marida Muchanga, born on April 14, 2001, in the district of Mossurize, province of Manica.

About my student trajectory, unfortunately I couldn’t pass the year, by that I mean that I’m repeating the third year of general medicine, it was a very difficult situation for me, because all my effort during the year 2022 was not enough, I passed through many difficulties during the year. During the second semester, I failed to pass two blocks (3.5 and 3.6) and I already owed 3.4 of the first semester. I tried my best, but that wasn’t enough, I’m also sad because now I have to study alone, my whole group is now in fourth year.

I’m very motivated to change the game now, I’m studying hard to successfully pass the third year and I’m very confident that I’ll make it, I’ve been studying with a colleague in the new class, since I still don’t know many people in the new class. It has been very productive. We started the new academic year on April 10th. We still haven’t taken the 3.1 block exam, but I think I’ll pass, I’m studying very hard for that to happen.

I want to thank DFM a lot for another opportunity for me to make my dream come true, you will not regret it, in three years I will be a Doctor, thanks to you, I know it will be a challenge but I am studying a lot and I know that this time everything will be different, thank you also for the computer, it will help me a lot in my studies.

Greetings to all DFM members.


My name is Doca Marida Muchanga, I was born 14 April 2001, in Mussorize district, Manica Province.

I’m actually student of third year. I can say that the years that passed I succeeded a little bit well because I’m now in different level than before. But I had also a lot difficulties principally in second year. At the beginning everything was fine or it was looking like fine so the first block (2.1) I passed in normal exam, and suddenly everything changed so the next three blocks (2.2, 2.3 and 2.4), I did not pass in normal exam that means I wrote recurrence exams and between those three blocks I just passed one (2.4). This was about first semester. In second semester, I passed all four blocks (2.5, 2.6, 2.7 and 2.8) in normal exam. So I have two blocks (2.2 and 2.3) that I did not pass in second year and that I will write as external exam this year, however, I hope to pass.

The third year started in April, I wrote already the exam of first block (3.1) the results are not available yet and we are now in second block (3.2).

As it is visible, I’m facing serious difficulties in writing recurrence exams. Even so, I’m doing my best since I started the curse and I believe that I will succeed.

Finally, I’m thankful for DFM in trusting and helping me to reach this dream and I hope to continue studying hard so that I can reach my purpose.

Greetings to all members of DFM!!!


I hope you are all well. Greeting to you all. I am well thank God.

Name: Doca Marida Muchanga, daughter of Marida Tendane Muchanga and Lúcia Jacinta Muiambo, Mozambican, born in Mossurize, Manica province, born on April 14, 2001.

I’m taking a medical course, currently in the second block of the second year.

I come through this, to report my journey in the first year of medical school.

The first year for me was a very atypical year, first because of this pandemic we are experiencing (covid 19). In academic life I faced many difficulties. Because of the pandemic, the faculty adopted the online system to continue with the classes. Being at home, and I couldn’t participate in all classes, because of internet costs (megabits). Also the reading process for me was very difficult, the phone I was using didn’t have a lot of storage space, I couldn’t have big books on the phone to read. Two months ago I was robbed, and my phone was stolen from me.

We girls were sharing two computers, that was already difficult, and now we are left with a single computer, as we suffered theft of one of the computers it is even more difficult.

Last year, in August, my uncle, who took care of me in Maputo, lost his life, and that greatly affected my studies.

But even with all these difficulties I managed to successfully pass the first year. I’m so grateful to God for that, and I’m also so grateful to all of you for giving me this opportunity.

I am Doca Marida Muchanga, Marida Muchanga`s and Lúcia Jacinta`s daughter. I was born in Manica province, Mossurise district, at 14/04/2001.

In last year, 2019, I was doing Prop.Year; particularly, it was challenger year, a lot of difficult situations, conquers and powerful to reach good results. The IDAI phenomenon affected a lot, it was too difficult to have good studying, there was no Energy for night learning, I lost a lot of materials for different needs. Not only because of IDAI, but also to adapt in some different learning methods. But finally the results were good, I was able to pass in normal exams.

In the beginning of this year, 2020, I was trying to adapt in new methods of studying, while these difficulties, the expectations are always being tried to be reached.
