    Looking at his past form (refusing to go on with an operation because he couldn't understand the foreign nurses), he knows that speaking out will result in him being put on leave, but if it results in a proper, informed discussion about the (lack of) evidence behind BBE, then I'm all for him having a rant in the direction of whatever media he can get his hands on.

    My major gripe with the whole episode is that everyone is saying it was Nunn vs Cameron, which it clearly wasn't, except that when it's the media being told off, the last thing they're going to do is actually report that they were in the wrong.
    Apparently the crew had clearance from the ward sister as they weren't going to have any contact with the patient.

    I know - it's crazy - right now our ratio of medical students: doctors in the TSR Med Students Soc is quite amusing

    Good luck dude - the waiting game is the toughest part!

    In other news, it seems around 12% of people failed finals and 6-7 people need to retake the year. Pretty shocking stuff for something 'no one fails'.

    How do theyknow they have to retake the year already if resits haven't been done? I'm guessing it's a different system to the other years.

    If they fail one of the two practical exams, there is no chance of a resit and they have to repeat the year. I'm not entirely sure if this is because of practical reasons or that they deem that if you fail a practical exam, you're not ready to be a doctor.

    Wow, I'd be interested to know which reason it is!

    5 people (from ~160) failed the final 5th year OSCE here and are resitting. Was fairly sure it was supposed to be unfailable if you'd managed to get to 5th year :s

    Apparently more than 10 failed here and that is rare. No resits here so they have to do the year again. The osce's were a ***** and apparently harder than last year. Really really feel for those people, it could have been me.

    5!

    In the last two years there was supposedly only 1 person that had failed.
