noun: a medical school exam where there is simply no other means of preparation, regardless of when you started studying, other than cramming. Often leaves those taking the assessment with a feeling akin to the morning after their first night in prison.
Can be shortened to excram.
Derived from the 14th century noun examination: the act of assessing the progress or testing of qualification or knowledge and the pre-12th century transitive verb of cramming: to pack tightly derived from old english crammian which is akin to Old Norse Krejama meaning to squeeze.
