EMQ= extended matching Qs
SAQ- short answer questions.

Nah if you don't know, go for D or M :p: I've never actually done that... but there's plenty of time.

Urgh now I need to learn anatomy, microanatomy and clinical skills. Worst things ever.

Good luck with your crusade thingy x

MCQ and EMQ papers bring out the OCD in me - I always end up making patterns and get annoyed if there aren't an equal number of As, Bs, Cs, etc at the end :p:

In one of our exams I counted up and I had 3x as many Ds as As (can't remember exactly what the letters were but the proportions were really skewed)
Good trip?

Seems I was ridiculously unlucky with my guessing today, its always out of two things and I managed to pick the wrong one most times.

Bet Derren Brown doesnt have that problem.

I often wonder if Derren Brown ever uses his m4d skillz to get women, money and anything else he needs.

If he can truly do the things the TV Cameras say he can do, that is!

The word document that's on the Year 4 exam page explains all...

All Ai are at 10am, but different locations (hence you only get your location).
All Aii's are at MDL, but at one of two times (hence only get a time).

I got Tuesday (10 min stations) and Wednesday (5 minute stations)...

URgghhh! BAck to sexual health revision...

Mine generally kicks in really early in the morning so I get an awful nights sleep just before the exam! Perfect!:rolleyes:

I know how that goes! Normally it's stress that keeps me up.

I hope your exams go well, though :hugs:. I would say that you'll be fine, but I know how scant a comfort that is.

Good luck! :five:

I have cocked up.

Badly.

I have nearly written my 4,500 word essay.

Except I'd forgotten that I had nearly two pages of references.

Instead of being 100 words short.

I am 1,100 words short.

thanks demon

fluffy/renal, do you know if the GEPs OSCE is likely to be the same as ours? hmmm

Since when did references count in the word count? edit: oh, I see.
