    I really enjoyed it and think it went well - out of 6 stations, i'm pretty confident i did well on 5 of them - the one i'm not so sure about is the comm skills one, never my best stations!

    I was very disturbed when I found out the average mark for my I&D formative was 86%, 70s being in the 20th centile. Christ.

    Then I found that last years paper (which was essentially identical) was available online. Supposedly.

    Actually learn the stuff, or just cram the answers next time :mad: **** sake.

    It's better to learn than to cram. Cramming is only useful in the short term... and you're better off thinking long term in this instance.

    I never revise for formatives. That way I get an accurate idea of where I am and how much I know without the benefits of revision.

    Ha. Its not that - I did learn the stuff, and got 70 - which IMO, while it could be improved, isn't bad by any objective stretch of the imagination. I just fail to see the point in essentially memorising a past paper for a formative, well memorising a paper full stop kinda misses the point really....Screw this uber competitiveness. It just isn't ******* necessary, everyone is bright, you have nothing to prove.

    Try telling that to the MTAS people who decided that you'd get points based on your quartile.

    Thats different. At least they're based on summatives. People are thinking about BScs already , apparently our 1st year marks count....

    If you had just listened to a talk about an elective at the centre for infections (HPA) covering things like the role of a public health doctor, rabies risks, oubreak investigations etc what sort of questions would you ask
    What am I doing here? And why they spent so much money saving a cat who may have had anthrax.

    Yup.


    On an entirely different note; why is it that all candidate's UCAS forms are the same? If I see "combining science with working caring" or variations on that theme one more time, I'll pop.

    Most medical applicants choose medicine for that reason :p:. Just because it's a cliché doesn't make it any less true or valid a reason to study this subject .

    Meh. Bugger,
    On another note, we had quite an interesting discussion about motivation for medicine - people are finding things starting to get quite hard going....

    Okay what you want to do is develop some oedema in your ankles and then massage it all down to the sole of your foot.

    Like wearing trainers with one of those shock absorbing air bubbles in the heel.
