1) Nicotine increases attention in non smokers

2) Asked  3 questions on chromosomal microdeletion syndromes with respect to chrs 11,13,15 and Prader Willi Syndrome

I wish I could remember more :-[

The only prep I did for ISQs was the questions in the superego bank. I did them using the internet as a resource (generally faster at finding answers than textbooks on all those obscure subjects). Many of them came up again! This bank is worth going through.

The sciences paper was guessing - didn't really make sense to me. The clinical paper had a few questions which they gave us at the Manchester course but basically not much of what you could read in books or journals would help! Hopefully someone clever remembers some questions - I can't - head was busted.

Basic sciences...HELLOOO!!

But re: clinical I must admit doing the exam second time that some of the questions were repeated from the autumn and previous spring papers...superegos bank helped there, and so did manchester course.But still ended up making silly mistakes anyway...so here goes again!

Oho-salaa-jee

Had me speaking a different language by the end of the basic sciences paper-worst than being in camp x-ray. Aimed to finish it early but when actually there the double negatives in the ISQ's had me in a bit of a complete thrill-great credit to the college-!st attempt at the exam-despite what previous folks have said-until one actually sits the paper one does not realise the complete waste of time ANY basic sciences revision was!!

I have spent all my life discussing specific reading disorder in the 5.5 to 9.5 age group in guatamala but not japan!

There was stuff that was so obscure that I still can't quite recall, but I noticed that it was (in undigestible list form ) in the basic sciences chapters of Puri and Hall if only I'd actually tried to learn it.
