Do you get reading time beforehand? One thing I really like about our OSCEs is that we get the scenario and reading time beforehand, and we can write notes to take into the real station with us.
Mmm, well those were our first ones, which were pretty much a bunch of different histories/situations.How is reading time really that helpful, though? I don't understand. I figure your OSCEs must be a bit different if they're only 5 minutes though, I find 8 minutes really short!
Its never a full history, only a segment. For instance here are 3A 5 minute history is pretty short though. What sort of stuff do you have to do?
It helps me immensely. I write down exactly what I am going to do, and a couple of things I am likely to forget when doing it.Do you get reading time beforehand?

I felt rushed too, but I kinda liked that it was over almost as soon as it began All of a sudden I was finished and huge weight was lifted off of my shouldersI guess the extra time allows you to gather your thoughts a bit - personally I felt rushed throughout the entire OSCE, it was a bit of a whirlwind.
I like the sound of the rest stations in between each - gives you a chance to calm down. I felt that my first station was terrible, and it kind of put me off track for the entire thing, because I didn't really get a chance to shrug it off so that it didn't colour the rest of the stations. Ah well. Hey Matt, are you aware of whether we get the results before stuvac/exams? Would be really helpful if we could.
You have no idea.Wow you must really live on here Matt. That was super quick!
Yeah, I'm pretty clueless as well. And it was such a blur. I really hope the release of those results isn't delayed. It'd suck to pass the final year exams only to find out you have to repeat 'cause you failed the OSCE months beforehand.I was thinking that maybe they wouldn't release them, because of uni policy about everyone getting their reults all at the same time (like last year). Interesting point. I want to know if I've failed so I can grieve now! And I hate not knowing how I went (it all passed in a grey blur and I can't really recall much now..)
I'm not sure what's going on with supps - apparently Prof Frankum is an adamant no in regards to them, but the only assessment schedule I can find says yes? And are there supps for the written exams?
