    Not too much! should be good. Generally I think OSCEs are way less stressful. I have a clinical skills revision night tonight but OSCEs not until the end of the year.. the day after our written exam (harsh). Use your flatmates to practice on.

    General question to all: do you find it easier to talk through what you're doing (and any findings) as you go along, or to summarise everything at the end? I can't decide, I find it distracting to have to talk through as I go along but then always forget something if I leave it to the end..

    OSCE tomorrow... :afraid:
    This early?
    Formative though right?

    I will swap I have psychiatry assessment tomorrow - my most hated subject within medicine.
    Probably should start revising! I feel like crap, am still puking and most of all have no motivation!!

    In earlier years where i was just memorising lists of clever things to say I found it helpful to speak out my carefully rehearsed script, because basically thats all you are doing! In later years it serves no purpose because i would just get distracted by my script.
    Psychiatry on the otherhand is a mystery unknown to man and a speciality that I hate with a passion. How and why would people want to do that for a living?

    Yeah I guess learning bullet points to cover at the end of each will work as long as I remember to note any findings and don't forget to put them in at the relevant part.

    Do you mean submental or are the submantles a set of nodes I'm unaware of?

    Same here. In my general exam OSCE I started palpating the above and was specifically asked to name them as I did it. Ditto for say abdo exam.. "I'm feeling for guarding" etc etc..

    I even had anatomy questions being fired at me while I was auscultating for bowel sounds. Bit annoying tbh.

    My day so far: Waking up and thinking.. this isn't my room..
    Realisation that I'd fallen asleep at the rowing Withnail and I challenge last night
    Realisation that everything hurt
    Go to med school and help out with interviews all morning, still slightly drunk to start, then massively hungover for the rest.
    Got back, sleep.


    **** off PBL, you're not getting done this week.

    Congratulations!

    I remember that night well - out for dinner - I felt far too nauseated to eat pudding (v uncharacteristic for me!) & once the text messages started dashed back to check results on college computer... then we went back for pudding & cocktails. I had to reread the email a good few times & get someone else to double check my number.
