Passed Got my highest mark of the year so far

Totally gobsmaked as it was the hardest exam so far - there were questions I really didn't have the first idea about, rather than the usual not knowing the answer but it being my own stupid fault for not leaving enough time to cover all the material in enough detail...

RELIEVED!!! Too early for a vodka, plus I have a PBL session in a few hours...

Congratulations fluff. Go and :party:

Thank you

Unfortunately I have a stack of work to do, so I'm sat here writing and enjoying a nice glass of red, instead of partying hard!

I'm all worried now that I didn't focus on the right stuff; it's a pharmacology piece rather than a clinical one, so hopefully I've aimed it at the right level, though I'm thinking I should have written more about its (thalidomide's) enantiomers. Ah well, nothing I can do now; I've got 5 more exams to prepare for in 5 weeks' time :eek:

I will be gutted if I don't get a 2:1 though...

whoo, well done fluffy!

5 exams helen? feel quite lucky we've only 3. & only one you can really revise for (so i like to tell myself.. )

Seems you'd have to try not to get a 2:1 overall here - last year everyone doing the FHS was 2:1 + . so perhaps more a question of whether to push like a mad thing for a first & then be gutted for having wasted your time...

I don't know, I have written a version of it an it just sounds really really stupid and bland. The CV part of it is fine it is just the personal statement part, the one I used to get into medical school is over 2 years old now and reading back on it, it really wasn't that great.

i actually don't know what you mean. to me its the easiest thing in the world.
write a list of everything you have possibly done. add some eloquence and penaz. and there you are.
the hardest bit is in getting the stuff done in the first place.

Well, they like to save them up all year and spring them on us at the end. This is actually less than last year in terms of hours, but they're all long essay exams, which I suck at

I need help with this question: briefly discuss the types of information and guidance that doctors have access to and compare these to health information available to the general public

Can someone give me some themes and ideas, other than like the media.

Guidelines etc are usually available to all. The main things I can think of off the top of my head are subscription services that require a GMC reg number to sign up to, and costly journal subscriptions...

Can only really expand on what Fluffy and Idiopathic have said.

Access to expert resources, GMC and BMA guidelines, NICE guidelines, specialist organisation guidelines - i.e - British Thoracic Society, British Hypertension Society etc...

In addition to that doctors have access to specialist courses during their postgraduate training.

In terms of guidance - junior doctors have access to senior medical staff who are able to pass on knowledge and provide guidance.

Furthermore, doctors have a greater background knowledge than the general public to understand and interpret new research.


Just a few random thoughts - hope it makes some sense.
