Not quite everywhere; tisn't too bad at all here. Well, the exam period is hellish and everyone goes insane, but we all finish fairly close together.
Well, everywhere other than OxBridge then - most medical schools have terms much longer than that of their parental university...

Ox part have just had a rather blissful week off post BA finals but tomorrow are back to work with intensive anatomy, while everyone else finishes & can start frolicking till the end of term. :bawling:
Previously ours have been the latest exams though, the week after normal term end in years 1 & 2 - but pretty short terms admittedly!

But 4th year is 39 weeks, 5th is 45 & 6th is 47! :eek:

Anatomy = :bawling:

I think i'm just naturally rubbish at it. Does anyone have tips for just remembering stuff - but location/name/detail stuff rather than more conceptual things?

Resists over the weekends of my 21st & our college commemoration ball will be woeful.

To all those soon to be medics (fingers crossed) who tried to sign up to MedSoc...

When Miles set it up, it was expressly for medicial students and qualified doctors, so unfortunately I've denied you access for the time being.

Reapply in September (/post exam results) and I'll add you.

This might seem cruel, but these are the T&Cs that the soc was set up against, and it might be that some of you do not meet your grades, and may be 'haunted' by your membership...

Plus you should be revising, not foruming :wink: Now go! Else I will hunt you down and make you recite the Krebs Cycle in German.

May we wish you all the best of luck in your exams, and see you in 'the Soc' next academic year!

a very polite way of saying "we just want ONE thread where there isn't a single one of the following questions:-
"I don't like blood, can i be a doctor"
"R my grades gud enough for medicine"
"which is the easiest med school to get into"
"which is the best med school"
"is this enough work experience"
"

blah blah blah :p:

Had a guy in clinic today who is recovering from being stabbed 9 times. no long term damage. lucky bugger!

I hate exams - why do they turn you into a jibbering wreck with no self-confidence?

I just scraped a pass in my locomotor spotter. I worked my arse off for it as well. I really needed to do well in order to balance out the primaries next week. If they go badly its resit city for definate. And considering i missed so much of the stuff they cover in primaries its anybody's guess!

Positive mental attitude. I've come this far and i am good at bull****ting. Maybe that will get me through. And resits aren't that bad.

Yeah right.

Sarky - don't think like that! You can pass, and will pass - passing your loco spotter after all you've been through over the last few months is testament to that!

Good luck!

I currently only know anything about the heart & great vessels. SO you might both trump me at the mo. Although last week I was passable on head/neck & limbs apparently! :p:
