    Ours it is apparently top 15 distinc then 25% merit

    But they seem to deliberately make our position unclear...this annoys me
    We don't have merits :nah:

    We get told what quartile we're in for OSCEs and our written exams. And then what percentage got a distinction and that's about it.

    Or spend £20 more just to pretend that season 9 never happened.

    Amazon should pretend season 9 didn't happen.

    I think we should pretend that anything after season 4 didn't happen.

    Also, I'm glad they only made one Matrix film and only 3 star wars films and that Indiana Jones w/ the dude off of Transformers fell through in pre production.

    So, I had originally planned to miss the first week of term as I was on holiday (I posted about it before, idk if anyone remembers) but now I've just found out my auntie has passed away and her funeral is the 10th.

    However, this would mean I would miss a week and a half. The first week I had planned to miss (arrive back on the Sunday 8th and was going to be in 9am on the Monday). I was going to text my GP tutor (only see Tuesday Morning) and my PBL tutor (only miss one session on thursday) to say I was ill or something similar.

    However, if I stay around to go to the funeral I'm going to have to miss the GP placement on Tuesday, my PBL on the Thursday, AND the PBL on the following Monday/Medsoc on the tuesday. Despite having a genuine excuse for the second week it's going to look a bit suspicious if I miss the first week and half.

    Sigh. I could always BS that I'm missing the first week due to the death but I feel that's using it as an excuse and would feel like a dickbag.

    I'm marked for attendance to the PBL/MedSoc/EPC and I missed one Medsoc/EPC last term due to illness (hungover for one and food poisoning for the other) so can't really afford to miss anymore. Can't be ****ed to deal with this **** atm.

    Peak times, but I think your gonna have to bust an EC to cover your absences. It does see dickish to do it, but I dont see what else you can do.


    (on a side note, whenever I see MedSoc I always think its a night out lol)

    I'm sorry for your loss but i think you tell them exactly what you've said in this post. They'll understand in light of what happened to your aunt, irrespective of your absence for the first week. Lying to your medical school isn't a wise thing to do. You can either come clean, or take the coward's way out. Your move hombre.

    Dude, sorry to hear about that. If you have to miss it, just tell them. From what I remember, you can miss two MedSoc/EPC sessions in a year, so you can use this as one of them (unless you were leaving that to pull a tactical sickie during end of year exam time)? Either way, better to let them know what has actually happened. If your GP/Consultant was anything like mine, they shouldn't mind if you miss a session, more so because it is something as unfortunate as this.

    Re lectures and stuff you are missing in week 2, I'll hand over my neuro notes from second year to you (that's if you don't have them already) or talk you through the stuff you miss (which I hopefully should remember) if you want? Just let me know - after my exam on Tuesday, I should have a bit more spare time.

    Have you started the business model thing yet? Think the first week of term might be much like that last week before the holidays...
