I got over my first exam hurdle for this semester - a 10 minute blind practical assesmment worth 20% AND I did it without chucking up milk OR having a nose bleed OR having an asthma attack. I think that signals some celebration! And I got a rocking score - somewhere between 16/20 and 20/20 I think, I can't be sure until we get our marks back sometime in the next month.

My skill was Venipuncture - which is taking blood with a vacutainer and pure vein finding skill. And my assessor was my advisor for Sweden - so he already knew I was a HUGE nerd (though he doesn't particularly like me - miner draw back). 

I'm so relieved. Also now I can stress fully for the written exams! Wheee!!!

Yay for you! That's awesome. What's a blind practical if I may ask? Is it where you don't know what procedure you'll be having to perform? Cos that's what I imagine hehe.

I am already in major stress mode for exams. My first one is Wednesday. Four essays in a two hour exam. Crazy!

Yep! Correct in one! It was better then last year though - last year we have an option of 12 assessments we could get, this year it was just 5 skills and it was so much easier! And only one person failed in the first hour which is like a record!

Exam stress is so insane! and your exam sounds so hard! thats only half an hour an essay! year 12 wasn't even that hard!

Ha, blind guesses are such a skill of mine! Good to hear this year was easier for you!

I know right? It's ridiculously insane. It's my Principle of Journalism exam so it shouldn't be too difficult. At least not in the sense that there's not so much date/fact remembering to be done, more discussing of concepts such as objectivity and communication. But still, half an hour. Eep!
