    Prospective Med Students 2006

    newcastle is an awesome course....i'm entering my 3rd yr now and i have to say, it's challenged me so much more than i could have imagined, but in a good way. the staff are always handy and approachable, both academic and administrative. it's true that it was the first to implement the PBL...

    What is Med like? hours? study tons?

    One of our repeaters passed all his exams, but didn't have a satisfactory tutorial attendance record, so he was forced to repeat.

    What is Med like? hours? study tons?

    Nah, what happened was that coz too many ppl failed, they increased the pass mark...but a lot of ppl might drop out coz they can't afford the fees. So we only end up with about 10 repeaters in our year.

    What is Med like? hours? study tons?

    no - it was 40 % and that was FAILURE rate, not dropout rate, you heard wrong. If that was the dropout rate, then Newcastle wouldn't produce any doctors. It's a very intense course but people don't study as much as they should. In my opinion the teaching methods are the best. It's very...

    med timetable is the sh*ts

    Umm, SBL = PBL. UNSW (along with other unis) copied Newcastle Uni which have had the UMAT, interview and PBL many years before now. UNSW just renamed it so they could create the illusion of originality :D

    Yes. They have all these cadavers in anatomy labs and when they cut them up, they need those chimnies to release all the fumes that the treatment chemicals give off.

    Religious affiliation

    Yes, God created the Big Bang...He created the single celled organisms that evolved as he Himself expanded across the empty space to form the universe. With that, live evolved. I am still undecided on the whole Adam and Eve story since I've not actually read it, but I don't see how evolution...

    using sam - aligned marks??

    Well for the students themselves, I don't think it's very important to be aware of such a technicality. All they need to know is that there's a lot of fidgeting with the marks going on after you do the exam and that occurs both with the HSC exam and your school marks. Therefore, it's not...

    Length of responses in the English HSC exam.

    you won't finish the exam with that sort of response...I suggest you practise writing that out as fast as you can, so you can see for yourself. The maximum I can do in 40 min is 2.25 typed pages (font Times New Roman, 12) - that's usually just a little over 1000 words.
