    Is playing the Wii a valuable substitute for revision?

    I think so.

    No, not on student parliament - no time for that. We just had our plenary attendance lecture (to which the lecturer was 30 mins late) and it was covered in that.
    Haha that sounds so much more interesting than our attendance lecture!

    Progress Testing today was utter rubbish. It was literally like doing 120 (short-ish) pbls in 2h 40 mins. I gave up after the 15th or so question (partly because I knew nothing at all) and just didn't bother attempting to do them properly anymore - had tons and tons of revision to do so I thought I'd pick answers at random , leave early and then focus on that first. Exams are in just 20 days!! :eek:

    Hi everyone,

    Have managed to find a brief release from final exam fear!

    Was just wondering how everyone felt about these online question banks and as to whether or not good performance on them correlates to a good performance in actual finals exams.

    So, does anyone know well pastest and onexamination stack up to actual finals, and if they do actually predict written finals performance?

    Best of luck convincing Student Finance that you're not dropping out of uni... I just got off the phone to them. You know it's gonna be a useful call when they ask what an MBChB is :facepalm: In summary, the advice is to fill out the online app as if you're staying at George's, then send in a paper application with the King's course details and a covering letter teaching them what an intercalated degree is :rolleyes:

    You're still at Barts. It's a lot of hassle to sort out when you're going externally.

    Check with people at your university. At UCL they are not at all like our exams questions and people in previous years people have told me not to do them. That said you might have great feedback from friends in the year above at your university. I would suggest you make sure first.

    My only advice would be to try and concentrate on basics. It seems very few fail on the written exams here so I am trying not to worry about my knowledge as much. I tend to have a SBA question book but it is very difficult. There is so much to cover so I would suggest you spend time learning and do a few SBAs. If you do the other way round does not work and especially if you are short on time you tend to start focusing on silly areas by doing too many SBAs. I have stopped doing lots of SBAs as it was not really helping me much.

    I myself have started teddy time and we have started working through examinations at the moment. I make up a disease and then present it to a teddy examiner. I know this makes me sound like a retard to some but I need to be practising so I can perform in the exam. I am a very practical person and I like things very clear and simple so this works for me. Also try and meet my friends and go through OSCEs once a week but we might up this near the exams.

    Good luck with it.
