    Because i'm probably not going to uni because i didn't finish my exams. If it had made me not want to do medicine i would have felt better about losing my places.

    I wonder what she'll do with her medical degree. There are people that want it so badly it doesn't seem fair that she is ambivalent about it. Still i'm not there so i can't judge her.

    I was a little dissappointed with the programme. It was nice to have a series like that, but I thought it could have been a bit more detailed, and broadened out a little bit more. It was good though, funny too in some parts !

    I can kinda sympathise with her because when you're in clinics and stuff, you kinda feel like your in the way. The doctor she was with never asked the patient until the end if it was ok for her to watch and do an examination; she might have thought she had to wait until consent was given before going in.

    It's a six-part documentary series following seven students through their third year of training.

    To be fair, it's a programme about life as a medical student - not a university recruitment infomercial!

    "If you get an A, you're working far too hard.. If you get a B, you're partying, but obviously not hard enough.. If you get a C, spot on" THAT'S the attitude..

    Yeah not the most insightful programme in the world ever, but worth watching all the same! Reckon the students got paid to be on it?! Kinda stressful to be doing your first ever blood test on an 80 year old, but infront of TV cameras?!!

    any medics know what percentage of the year get honours? i'm assuming this is fairly constant throughout med schools...

    I'm sure the patients he'll have to treat at the end would expect him to have tried to do the best he could throughout.
