    I am a mature 2nd year student and have panic attacks re clinic assessment at end of year.

    when I am on my own or with friends answer question feels ok, I do not know if this cause we make it too easy or just not asking right questions. I manage paper exams well, I think this cause you have time to work out answer and can choose the order you answer questions. Any way I am looking for some one to help me understand more what is required from us, how to shine. I am not looking for some one just to give me the answers and I learn them parrot fashion.

    So if you have time for a poor wee student, or have some good advise please help :wacko:

    aaah i think i know where you are coming from. It sounds to me as if you have very high expectations of yourself and are lacking a little confidence. Why not practice with some one else on your course. I know role play is a bit cheesy but honestly, saying stuff out loud in a relaxed environment will help you when the time comes. I am not sure this entirely answers your question, perhaps some of the lectures on here could answer with what they are looking forward. Anyway, good luck with your exams.

    Thank you. I so agree with everything you say. But finding someone to study with who will challenge you is hard, and I live a distance from uni. :bash:

    I agree, get someone else to be your study buddy - that's what helped me through our assessments..but maybe speak to your lecturers too- they will be able to help!

    Good Luck!!

    say it outloud to your cat or your mum, whatever , the point is to gain confidence in giving information

    oh and get a structure of what you're saying. For me it was pt complains of, on examination then medication taken and what it does. then physical aspects like pulses etc..

    That helped me, maybe it'll help you too!?

    :empathy:yes I think I do need more stucture, been taping myself today and things like pathology of callous, I understand but on repeat it sounds wishy washy, so going back to basics and writing out statements and taping them. practice practice. thank you for responding.
