Postal?

(Original post by oxygenbubbles)
My first half of 1 mark questions was ok, the 2nd half (each question worth 4 marks) was awful. I have no idea if I've failed or just scraped a pass. leaning more towards the fail though. I suppose on both of our accounts, they could have gone worse on some level..I'm sure..
Sounds like my anatomy exam the other day ;console;. At least it's over now!
Have you more exams left?

Cosm by and large, they are window-licking ****ing spak monkehs who can fill in plenty of forms about how they reflected on killing someone but can't have a human conversation with a potential employer whilst sat across the table from them. Never mind that they were sub-human morons and unable to manage a basic grasp of the English, they blamed the 'old-boy' culture because, perhaps not supprisingly, consultants gave jobs to the doctors that they were impressed by not those cretins who they weren't.

That is all.

Thats what I thought. But they're all on about scrapping it. I hope they don't, I'm quite happy with it for foundation apps

I don't think the idea of there being an "old boy culture" was completely out there when it came to applications i am sure that it went on.

It might well have done.

But, put yourself in the consultants shoes, would you willingly employ someone to work for you, knowing that their work would reflect on you and affect your workload if they were crap simply because they played a good game of rugger?

I'll admit I didn't know that.
Well, I know little about the whole process anyway, but with what I have read and heard I thought differently.

I think it might have been more of if there were two candidates who would were pretty similar when it came to competence etc they might go for the rugby boy, however i am not convinced it went on as much as some people say it did.

Scrubin'

First year medical school class takes some time away from the books to make a music video. Work hard, play hard.

**This is purely for entertainment purposes. No human specimens were filmed in this video, and this in now way reflects actual conduct in the anatomy lab.** (more) (less)

Enjoy!

considering how many consultants are asian, one might argue that the same sort of behaviour would pick out just as many polite asian lads as rugger buggers - more infact.
poor little blacks boys however...


if think its right there be a degree of nepotism. its a necessary evil when you have meritocracy. why shouldn't a consultant chose person A for the job because person A worked for their buddy adn they heard great things about him?

the system now has gone so far they have saught to completely prevent any meritocracy, any experience or qualities counting towards you.
