Another slightly different perspective I will add — sometimes, its worth it to just skip it! On the real exam, you will definitely get some more nit-picky questions asking about the specific mechanism of a certain protein in this one different environment of the body… and while you could maybe spend time logic-ing your way through the question and using your principles of biochemistry to work through it, it’s often not worth the time you are wasting at the expense of other clinical questions. Each question is worth the same amount!
With extra time at the end, by all means, go for it! But on first pass through a question set, just keep on moving to get through and not miss easier points down the line.
