    First draft done :party: (only ~2000 words over... ) Probably got at least as much work still to do on it but going to wait for some feedback on that draft first.

    I am from Texas, and I'm going to Texas again this summer (if I pass exams) and for a week in October (no matter what, because my brother's getting married). Haven't been since 2008.

    I got my first choice last year (and we won on our poster presentation ), but it was a less popular one (polycystic kidney disease). This year I got my 5th choice for my taught module, and am currently having my arse kicked by my 2nd choice library project.
    Wow, well done! ah, i can't even imagine how much work it is to do 2 SSCs during the year on top of everything else. I feel like us first years have it so easy :p:

    In first year, an essay and a poster (in a group of 5/6, which we have to present). Not sure about second year.

    They've gotta break you in gently

    Well we have every Tuesday set aside for SSC, so it's not that bad if you're willing to use that day for it each week. It is a bit of a pain in the arse doing that alongside core stuff, but you get used to it.

    We have a mix of stuff really. In second year you do a library project which is a 5000 word essay, and the other is either a taught module or a language. Taught modules can simply be lectures and tutorials, with a written exam, poster or essay; or they can have a mixture of that and lab write ups if appropriate, maybe vivas or presentations. Content totally depends on the module - can simply be in the classroom, or maybe a bit of time with patients in the community or hospital, maybe in the labs. In clinical years they become much more, well, clinical.

    When I did them, they were a real mixture.

    Firstly, back then they were SSMs and that stood for Study Something Meaningless.

    Some were assessed on essays, some on presentations, some on attendance and overall impression and some on audit or research.

    The only fixed ones were SSM3B which was a workbook which covered comms skills, psychosocial issues, literature review and a little bit of basic science and SSM5 which was a 4,000 word dissertation.

    I suspect it's changed to become much more quantitative since then though.

    My SSC was more practical, it was assessed by an exam and then by me teaching in schools.

    They did do well, I'm very proud of the ladies for winning. I sadly didn't race. It was just gong to work out as being too expensive and the budget didn't stretch. It's just as well actually as I had a knock on my door at 2 this morning from my housemate who was vomiting blood and in a pretty bad way :confused: I have to say I always do a hip hooray for the other team when we race. Do you not?
    Was that the peninsula women's IV? In a category with 1 other iV
    Yeah we do every time, but they did it straight off, and it's nice to get one from a crew of giants who raced past us haha :p:

    Oh dear

    Bah. I want my neuro exam questions to be on Eyes or the Vestibular system. Nice and simple.

    Or spinal chord lesions.

    Nothing to do with higher brain function.
