    There are refresher anatomy sessions seeing as all the anatomy was covered in year 1 but everything is pretty much new, so yes they do talk to you as if you weren't on a summer break. Having said that, CR isn't that complicated and you sorta go through it thinking "I'm sure we did this last year" as we did cover a few pathologies in year 1 pbls, but the EMQs, particularly for Resp were kinda annoying. There are a few major pathologies you sorta need to know inside out, but you'll prob have lectures and pbls (and possibly microanatomy sessions) on these.

    At the beginning of each module, Dr Carroll gave as a mini talk about reading all your year 1 notes for each module before it started again. Wise words. Wish I did that. Dunno who your new head of year is since Carroll retired, but it's still a good idea to recap a few bits and pieces if you can.
    Yeah... About that... I don't have any notes... I write notes to learnt the stuff then toss 'em.

    That's ok. I only made notes for Funmed and HD in first year then got lazy ever since. Just read the slides or something (if they are still on blackboard/you printed them off). You don't really need to spend that much time on year 1 stuff as there's sooooo much more to learn in second year - you do get the random year one question sometimes in exams, but it's not worth the hassle reading everything from last year in detail; a quick glance would suffice.

    I don't quite get this - so more points for the people who will in essence be getting more points anyway?
    I think it's basically at the med school's discretion how they want to award those points but I'm guessing (and was told) a fair bit is going to go to those who have excellent academics. But the med school might choose to give it for best poster presentations/essays etc. if they want, not sure how it's gonna work tbh. Why couldn't they just stick with the white space questions?

    Although you should be careful. I know non medics who have heard conversations between medics who have felt uncomfortable with the terms.

    Is it bad that I auto-read midwives as madwives?...

    Oh mate, I was such a state. I didn't eat anything all day as I didn't have time between travelling and stuff. What a mistake that was. I don't remember anything past ~half 10 or something when I went to sit outside Good Sams to chunder.
