I have enjoyed it, but haven't really got talking to anyone except my two friends from tech. Once we get into our tutorials it should be better and we will get to know each other easier. Is anyone in C2? I have forgotten my password and can't get into QOL to find out when my tutorials and practical classes are on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. I'm such a bimbo!

I am soo jealous of you all. You have to keep coming back to this thread to update all us late starters on everything from coursework to placement!
So were you all just in a big lecture hall to start with? How many were there?
What's the timetable like? Is it really nine to five everyday?
Have you have classes yet with just your indivdual branches?
If I just showed up randomly in lecture and just pretended I was supposed to be there would anyone notice?
Ok forget that last question i'll just have to wait for my time to cmoe :smile:
Good luck everyone in your first few weeks I'm sure by this time next month you'll all be old pros and will have made loads of new friends!
Hey shonaanne, we started off in one big lecture hall - they said there were 280/290 of us. They spent 30 mins breaking us up into our tutorial groups and then we had an introdcution/welcome talk. Covered the layout of the course and what we'll be studying. We then had a break and had talk on infection control. That was Monday. Then over Tues/Wed/Thurs, we went with our tuttorial group to Occy Health for Hep B and to meet our personal tutor. We also had study skills lecture and IT lecture everyone together on Tues (boring but necessary). Tomorrow we're in non stop 9-2 with talk about placement ad numeracy test. Hope that helps - I know how you feel - I like knowing how things work. Next week we start for real and it's not full time maybe 20/25 hours.
Meant to say we find out where are placements are on Monday! :biggrin: :biggrin:

Oh yay i am kinda excited about finding out where we're heading:woo:

I didn't get the booklist thing either which is kind of annoying but sure

Got my hep b today......i could be macho and say it didn't hurt at all...but i'm gonna admit it stung a fair bit:frown:
I found the injection bit ok but sore muscle afterwards and even today. I think Queen's bookshop have a list but one of our lecturers today told us not to get them as Children's will be different.
