    Need some advice.


    Should I revise the exciting world of the autonomic nervous system or go on a mad NYE night out?


    Would appreciate all your help regarding this tough decision laid upon me.
    Well last year I was on a medics ski trip celebrating the new year at the highest snow dance floor in Europe along with 20 thousand other people; this year I'm home with my parents....Take the good ones when you can!

    Have you started the business model thing yet? Think the first week of term might be much like that last week before the holidays...
    Don't be silly, I haven't done any work since we finished term :p:

    I'll consider doing it in the next week maybe... :erm:

    SAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMMMMM MMMMMMEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

    I have my mock exams from 16th - 20th. But I still haven't covered half of the course. Oh well.... I guess the next two weeks will be all about cramming....
    Your college is evil, we have informal mocks (which involves an anatomy essay and a physiology MCQ paper). Our biochem supervisor is keen and is getting us to do everything: the practical, MCQs and essays. Good luck to you, I haven't covered much either, I revise but tend to forget it all and resort to playing PS3... :sigh:

    I really should get back to this anatomy essay...

    Would you say there were discrepancies/differences between colleges in terms of teaching and course/exam structure?

    Or is the course universal and just taught a the different colleges?

    I decided to not go out - because I know I will end up doing something I'll regret the next morning. So I am going to stay at home.

    Nooooo. Some colleges have better supervisors but the material covered is so simple compared to what the supervisors know that all supervisors can support the students to the best. But it's the college environment that makes some perform better than others. For example the hill colleges usually tend to have sooo many events going on so that ppl tend to party a lot and thus perform a bit worse than colleges like Trinity where no one goes out! Well, actually, they do... to a scientific talk by some random scientists lol.. .

    lol at your physiology supervisor. There's no way he's serious, but no one will fail it because by him saying that people will be scared into working.

    Exam structure is exactly the same, everyone is entered for the same ones regardless of college. Teaching is a bit different between different colleges; some supervisors at some colleges are more militant than others. So at some colleges, students get 3-4 essays a week and the pressure is higher. At other colleges with more sane supervisors, the workload isn't so heavy (2 essays a week). In terms of exam performance, it fluctuates year on year. Some colleges have consistently good results (the majority gets 2.i and above), but no college 'dominates' medicine per se.

    One person out of 18 doesn't really equal dominate does it? Last year Jesus had someone (maybe 2 I think) in the top 10, Queens got a lot firsts, yet these two are pretty much never mentioned as much as the colleges with a 'reputation' for medicine :rolleyes:

    If a college consistently gets say a first from half of its intake year in year out, then you can comfortably say it dominates. But that never happens, it always fluctuates year on year.
