    I have recently failed my resit OSCEs and I know this is not a true reflection of my ability.

    I would like any advice on what I can do. I have grounds to appeal however I did not submit mitigating circumstances by the deadline and now I think my only option will be to appeal.

    The outcome I would like is to be able to carry on and resit the OSCE at the next available sitting whilst continuing onto final year.

    I’m really sorry to hear that. It must be a tough situation for you. Firstly, I think it’ll be important for you to take some time to yourself, I appreciate it must be such a sucky situation. Then, try to reflect on the situation and decide on what you want to do next. May I ask, what options have the med school given you now?

    In terms of the appeal, I would strongly recommend having a read of this thread: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=1768781

    Sadly, it may be a bit tough to progress through to the next year and have another shot at the OSCE for this year - usually, I’ve heard of people being asked to take some time out before returning to repeat the year but it may be med school specific. That may not necessarily be a bad thing though, as it may give you some time to reflect on things.

    Either way, good luck and I wish you all the best in the appeal.

    Thank you for your reply usy. Basically my meeting with the medical school is this week and I will know more then. I just wanted to know what to expect. I understand progressing onto final year and also having the OSCE to do that year is a tall ask. Thank you for the best wishes.
