Thanks guys. Just goes to show how right my sig is, though I still do those things.
(I was going to offer a hug but some people don't like that so hmm hmm *ducks in corner*)

Indeed, indeed... Personally I tend to skip on the exercise part though other than the daily walk (this is when I blame lack of time etc.).

Just noticed the spoiler on your signature...lolz, loved it.

Surprised there's a few on here into the idea of Sonisphere - can only think of 1 or 2 guys in my year who'd be up for it.
It's not something I'd listen to at home but I'd love to go for the general atmosphere.

Really? What's the reasoning behind it, out of interest?

I'm trying to find that out myself!


Thinking about maybe trying to challenge the policy next year? Not sure how I'd go about it though. Maybe start by writing a letter, possibly a petition? Clueless tbh.

Is it related to clashing term dates, perhaps? I've seen that given somewhere as a reason why Masters courses commonly aren't permitted as intercalated degrees.

Not bad, although compared to some of the really specialist degrees I see elsewhere..

Clinical Medicine
Cancer Studies
Cardiovascular Studies
Clinical Neuroscience
Clinical Pathology
Immunity in Health and Disease
Psychological Medicine
Public Health
Sports and Exercise Medicine
Women and Children's Health

School of Life Sciences degrees
Anatomical Sciences
Biochemistry
Genetics
Microbiology
Molecular & Cellular Biology
Parasitology
Pharmacology
Physiology

but I would have liked to have been able to go somewhere else. New experiences and all that. I would also have liked the opportunity to look at more specialised degrees maybe.

I'm not sure if UEA offer external intercalation.

If not I get to choose between an MRes or an MClinEd......

I'm not sure I understand why it would be a problem. You're only allowed to incalate after third year, and third year does finish quite late, but that only means that you'd just not have a long holiday surely?

People who were in my year intercalated in London this year so it is possible (one even intercalated in Australia :yep:)

When does fourth year start though? Ours is a July start, so there could be cross-over between the end of your iBSc and your return to clinicals.

the ugh was from jealousy and bitterness, btw

At UCL they've just changed it so they're making it compulsory for the years below us to intercalate here (and not letting external applicants in) so they can start to introduce some MBBS bits to the BSc year to allow continuity.. perhaps it's going to be a widespread move?

Personally I'm looking forward to a year away from the MBBS completely but I guess I can see where they're coming from.. will be interesting to see how it pans out.

At Peninsula they have started getting those who are intercalating to participate in the progress tests alongside the rest of the curriculum so that their BMBS knowledge stays to a standard suitable to enter 5th year.

Just swapped rooms with one of my flatmates. I'm downsizing from a mahooosive room to one about 1/3rd of the size. Damn my inability to sleep with traffic noise!

Noez! :eek: I find traffic noise quite soothing when going to sleep actually (am I weird?)... It does rather annoy me when all the buses start going humpybumpy at 5am though, it's like, "I wanna sleep for an extra hour and a half, boohoooo".

Yes, you are weird I don't want any 5am wake up calls! everyone just looked at me in shock. It's literally SO much smaller but oh my god I don't even care I want to be able to sleep. Every car going past vibrates around my ears, damn my rural upbringing!
