Failed my OSCE helpppp

I got my osce results a few days ago and saw I failed. I get a resit but if I fail that I get kicked off the course. The worst part is I thought I did well. I'm in pharmacy school BTW. How common is this. My stomach is killing me.
Try to relax a little, you get a resit, and remember they will want you to pass otherwise they are losing £9250 x the number of years you have left!
Start with looking at the parts you failed, go and see your tutor to discuss this. Pay close attention to which ones you failed.... is there something that you don't understand ? ( you thought you did well ) and you need to look at your notes, etc in this area.
Talk to fellow students about the part you failed on to check your understanding of the material and what did they do differently to pass each OSCE.

Do you have this book or similar in the university library?

Try not to worry, I had to do my 2nd year microbiology practical test about 5 times until I passed! ( they were a bit more relaxed on how many times you could do a practical test a few years back! )
i’m a second year pharmacy student. Honestly i’ve come across a lot of pre reg students and even pharmacists who have failed osce’s or even dispensing exams a lot. I’m surprised u only get one second chance for the osce’s as I know in bath you get 3 chances. Definitely follow what the above person said, but feel free to message if u need any support with it. also u sure u get kicked off the course right away? not even a chance to resit the year?
also what osce is this as i can try give some tips
I just recently did my osce as a first year pharmacy student and I am very certain I have failed. Could you give me some advice on how to pass and get better score?
