    11am 10th February! In the middle of our next placement which should be great, sure won't want to be seeing many patients in the afternoon if I've failed!!

    Oh the rotator cuff-I used to loathe it until my first placement, it was all MSK based and ended up actually understanding the shoulder once I could see how everything worked in practice.

    I'm in 2nd year. For my exam I was given a paper patient who'd had an RTA resulting in peripheral nerve damage to his common peroneal nerve 12 weeks previously. He was just gaining a flicker of muscle activity in his dorsi flexors.

    I had to come up with a treatment plan for him. It was a nice scenario and pretty easy really I just got messed up because the structure of the exam was different to the mock and I got told to do something I hadn't really planned for. Looking back now I think I was pretty good with the pathology and general anatomy of the affected area and how it would affect function so hopefully that will get me a pass.

    I don't know how the different uni's work their practical exams but in ours you have to model for another persons exam after yours. I was modelling for a respiratory case scenario and it just seemed so much easier and the structure was allot nicer too, everyone in my year hates prac exams and the way they work, it's not a very fair system.

    We have neuroanatomy and neurophysio all combined It was waaaaaaaay over my head and we've only had one lecture

    We do on module called foundations of physiotherapy practice but its subdivided into
    - Neuromusculoskeletal (my favourite as I covered most of it on my last degree lol)
    - Cardiorespiratory - Wohoo I get to play with my stethoscope!
    - Electrotherapy
    - Neuro Physio

    Oh - and PAL (peer assisted learning) and shared topics with the nurses - have to do an essay for shared topics which is 20% of mark but other than that these two don't count

    I don't know how I'm going to remember all those neuro words
