    Won't lie, that exam is a bit of a doss compared to the mid-sesh, so don't worry too much about it just make a few notes and highlight on the paper you're given.

    PASSED MY EXAM. Close call though! 20% of the year failed - pretty disgusting actually as usually it's only <10% fail rate. We've went from the year that set the highest passing rate and in 6 months we've set the highest fail rate. Shook me up though - defs need to work real hard next year.

    Meh, I'm just ultra annoyed they've changed our ranking to include our ICAs since I did no work for them last year, nor did I do any work for the first one this year as they told us after it.

    Home for Christmas Giving myself a few days off before hitting the books to revise do all the work I didn't bother doing last term during my massive I-dont-give-one phase. Booking a few shifts in at the hospital but going to try to ease off it a little bit (and do a few Sunday long days).. need a break. Back in Glasgow before new years as have a job there now too and they wouldn't give it me off. Bah humbug.

    12 spots for external intercalation. So it's much more competetive than the usual. We can only externally intercalate after third year too.

    I'm going to have to do some work now throughout the year for our crappy ICAs rather than scraping a pass.

    Mate I'm sure the ICA's only count towards our deciles, I'm not sure though it's all a bit of a mess. Are you planning on doing infection & immunology next year or the year after?

    I'm gonna apply for this year anyway but I'll have a better shot next year I reckon.

    Haha yes I've heard this, thanks. Do you think a few days of revision/looking over the paper should be enough for it? I'm trying to concentrate mainly on the scenarios, we've been given 3/4 anatomy ones unfortunately!

    Yeah that will definitely suffice, shouldn't worry too much about it. Last year we had diabetes, fertility, one anatomy and cancer.

    Good luck with that! Patrick's pituitary is the best of those.

    3rd year has been a blast so far, so, so much better than pre-clins but a lot harder work. Been in chichester on a gastro firm, really nice team there and let me get really stuck in. Christmas break is welcome, made extra great by having 0 work to do for once! Heading to Woolwich for neuro/ophth/psych after Christmas, the commute will be annoying but should be interesting (probably not a patch on gastro though).

    I would've said that sort of thing was stuff like pH (or pKa, I guess), ionisation, degree of lipid solubility, etc.
