    Same goings on with us last year really, it will turn into the RAG clique very quickly! I went out a couple of times last year and to a couple of the events, but my contribution this year has gone as far as buying a mag... How did I miss such sightings?

    Phase 2 is so, so much better than phase 1! Year 2 is... tough. Well, tougher than 1st year but it's interesting stuff so I get by. So many more lectures.
    I know! It's always the same RAG clique who came to lectures, trying to drag the rest of us out. Ah, yeah I can imagine how much harder year 2 must be not looking forward to it! (providing I even get there.. haha!) If you don't mind me asking, how did you revise for the end of year exams, like in terms of making notes/reading over lectures?

    I am quite renowned for having a deep (and sadly monotonous) voice, I was also slightly ill when I made that so that may have accentuated things. I'm intrigued to hear yours for comparison!
    I may be unobservant but your voice hasnever come across as remarkably deep to me.

    How's revision going for the formative? I've been doing so little lately it scares me. I actually had a dream Bender came to my flat and fired a bazooka at me for failing. It won't be too far from the truth if I do fail again.

    If it's any consolation I've done absolutely no revision. I do seem to have accumulated every past paper known to man though. :sexface:

    Awful. I don't feel at all ready, and now I'm looking back on it and actually having to 'revise' the sheer quantity of it all really hits you, it's hard to know where to start! That is a pretty incredible dream, I imagine Bender with a bazooka to be a rather funny image.

    Has anyone else happened upon this idiot in the D&D forum? I don't think I've been so angry at someones views on healthcare - it makes it much worse that he's a student from my med school :mad:

    haha well how would he like it if they came up with system whereby the rich pay and the poor get free NHS to "improve the quality of the service"... im sure he wont be asking for privatisation then! although personally (it might sound very socialist) i think it's an alright idea, something like the drug prescription system.

    Oh god I think partial privatisation/reform/whatever you want to call it would be a good idea personally but he argues the wrong way is deliberately using false examples and fails to recognise that private healthcare does not also mean unlimited healthcare.

    I wanted to jump in but I cba and frankly arguing for it while arguning against him will prove to much effort.

    Judging by your sig you aren't going to like me very much though

    Yeah you got me. I find it hard to resist the tash.

    I have pretty much every one too. I don't think that's of any use until I look at them though

    That's february formatives for you I wouldn't worry about it too much if you don't do well but I do think it's bull**** when people tell you not to do any work for them at all because I think it's more of a personal thing than anything, you have to determine whether it'd knock your confidence for May or not if you didn't do particularly well. Nothing happens if you do fail except you go to bender for a chat and his moustache twitches at you and he gives you his disappointed face. I went to see him last year after the boat club AGM and forgot to take the bottle of vodka out of my bag. Luckily he didn't notice.

    Generally it's an achievement to only fail by a few % though :p:

    Yes. I was already in a bad mood when I came across it so I had hell to pay with him.

    Then it turned out he knew someone I knew because she's a Cambridge transfer and I had to shut up :ninja:

    1. Eat loads before the exam.

    2. Don't dissect answers with other people after the exam. People will have got it wrong. And people will make you worry.

    3. Eat loads after the exam just because you can.

    4. If you have no more exams, get a sneaky drink in there as well.

    Well it's not that bad, you just knuckle down and get on with it really, and by this point I find I take things in quicker and am better at filtering what I need to know and how much time I should spend.

    I wrote shorthand notes for each lecture, spending maybe 15-20 mins on each one, and was revising a scenario a day. Then with the last couple of days just read through the slides a couple of times quite quickly, seemed to work for me.

    I've found the same actually. Obviously it's helped actually having done this part of the course before :p: but I've found after the first year, even with lectures I missed last year or content I missed, I know what the important information is and what's not important and can take it in much more easily whereas last year I found myself overwhelmed with remembering facts I probably didn't need to know.

    My way of working is probably much slower than yours though. I've found I learn most effectively by writing a LOT of notes which combine the lecture slides, lecture notes and extra reading. So far for this module I've managed to make a word document containing notes and diagrams and it's over 100 pages long and not even finished yet.

    This is basically what I do :yep: I get the PBL outcomes and edit everybody's work into the document meaning it actually properly answers the outcome (occasionally this involves re-doing a whole outcome :p:) and add in all bits of other stuff as well. It seems to have worked for me.....so far :p:

    Yup. I've found simply reading things separately, such as reading the relevant areas of physiology sepearately to reading the lecture notes means you get different bits of knowledge and there's no structure to it whereas if you combine things it feels more structured and organised and things connect a little more.
