    Cheers, thankfully that was the end of that set of modules so actually need to cover the modules before the next exam.. so got another 8 weeks or so until the next one

    If I do well I should be fine and won't need to resit anything, I was just hoping to do well in that to take some of the pressure off later on in the year.

    Everything should work out fine.. I just didn't think I'd failed that exam



    All sorts, you might get a photo of a prosection to test your anatomy knowledge etc, or could be a blood film and identify the type of anaemia, or a histological slide of the gut and say where it is/abnormalities etc.

    Dude, fell better about this spotter. :console:

    The only one you really need to worry about is the end of year one - do well in that and you're well on your way to securing a merit/pretty high average because its worth a whole lot more than the ICA ones. My ICA results fell a bit in the second term in both years 1 and 2. They usually do for some people because its mid way through the year, you're feeling a bit meh about everything and second term is usually the busiest in terms of extra curricular stuff.

    Good Luck with the written exam results!

    Mate, this is me. But I'm a terrible student when it comes to written exams. OSCEs were easy, but for the most part I am a complete suicidal wreck near exam time because I don't do work and start revision too late. I usually fail exams the first attempt and scrape by the resits. This doesn't bode well for you, unless you are very bright.

    The thing is, for face-time stuff with seniors, I'm good. I prepare for tutorials and topics before hand. I can present and speak confidently so tend to sound better than I really am. So for OSCEs, presentations and interviews I'm fine. I just don't do written exams well.

    But seriously, don't get too relaxed.

    I failed 3 out of my 4 papers in first year. Only passed PBL. On resits I got between 51-56 where the passmark is 50%.

    I failed 1 out of 3 papers in second year. And got 57 on that resit.

    57 was the highest mark I got in 1st and 2nd year.

    3rd year, I breezed the OSCE apart from I forgot the mini-mental questions. Got 67 on the EMQs with a 60% pass mark.

    For my exam in 10 days, I've left over 80% of the revision for the last 2.5 weeks up to the exam. Meaning I've only looked at 80% of this stuff for the first time just over the past week. I'll probably just manage a 2.2 for this paper which is 40% of my BSc. I've gotten high 2.1s on all the in-course stuff, and if I can do a good project I'll be happy with a 2.1 for the BSc.

    And I'm on TSR now.

    I don't know why I've gone into this much detail, I just don't appreciate when others question my laziness and lack of exam work ethic.

    Yeah, I remembered all but like 2 questions. But it was an obvious not-slick struggle. Then I couldn't remember the interpretation of the score at all. The rest were fine.

    The cardio exam patient wrote me a poem because I had like 2 minutes to spare at the end. Still have that on my desk

    Yeah, the OSCEs can be weird. I've had friends that have gotten merits for years 1/2 but failed the OSCEs, and they weren't even socially awkward penguins.

    Did they not proof-read it before submitting it? The entire review is scatty.
