    Spotters are a bit of a hit and miss really. It's all about what pictures come up :p:

    But yeah don't worry about the spotter from the ICA, it's not really worth much anyways, but you do need to think about the end of year one where you do need to pass it...

    You should be able to go through the spotter exam you just did on blackboard I believe, so just see where things may have gone wrong. It's nothing to get down about, just keep going

    Aw ****, so apparently I have to submit my slides for my 10 minute presentation about Malaria treatment on Wednesday tomorrow and I haven't even started.

    Good job it's only 10 minutes and is only to a quarter of the year. Having done a 10 minute presentation on memory last week I think I've realised that's basically no time at all.

    Guaranteed to appear important to laypeople and clinicians. There's a difference. More likely to be contradicted than other journals which do workhouse research; less flashy, less bangs and whistles, but less likely to be overdramatized and hyped to the extent that it's just plain wrong. http://www.plosmedicine.org/article/...l.pmed.0050201

    I did 3 throughout the span of last November. Bad times.

    Dissertation progress: 54 words. Yay. Another 9946 to go.

    (It's a ****ing good opener though!)

    Ha! I have lost count of the number of essays I have had to complete for this BSc. Granted about 30/40% of them have been reflections on my teaching experiences and teaching observations this year. I have 4 more essays to start and hand in by the end of this month, on top of 3 or so teaching sessions to write up. Essay galore. This probably should be a BA rather than BSc tbh.

    That said, the good thing is I have my last (essay based) exam for the year in 12 days time! Then its dissertation time. Plan is to finish my data collection asap so I can head off on holiday to write it up. Imagine typing away on the sunny seaside in the middle of March/April when everyone else would have started their revision for their end of year exams! :p: Bliss.

    Why can't news articles link papers as references? Sick to death of Googling, finding vague news articles then spending 20 minutes finding their reference so I can read it myself.

    I'm in A&E tomorrow to find a few patient cases. I have no idea what the **** im doing when it comes to usual etiquette. A&E is going to be a lot different from what I'm used to and we've essentially been let loose without any supervision. Any tips and/or heads up? I really don't want to get in the way of the team managing them.

    My consultant is on leave so I'm guessing I just rock up and find out who his reg is and ask if I can examine some of his patients if appropriate. I assume I'll need a chaperone if I'm doing a physical exam? Is this a normally done thing?

    I sometimes wish I'd done the traditional iBSc with exams, because looking at criteria to get a 1st class Hons and we need to make a significant contribution to the field and show innovation as ours is a full year of research.

    What does that even mean?!

    I'm beginning to develop a hate/love relationship with research and right now I'm towards the hate side of the spectrum.

    All the best with exams for those that have them, I feel for you guys!


    Also this might help for those trying to analyse papers

    3 a week is horrible and is almost impossible to do effectively whilst maintaining a good work-life balance so it just makes you resent the system despite enjoying the subjects.

    Lucky you - this year college shaved a month off dissertation time, so everything has to be in by end of March
