  • An unfair exam that has nothing to do with real life GP

  • In real life patient tells me their ICE even without me asking. Just sat CSA and I found actors dont give it away. There's element of bias, if they dont like you then cues given in 9:40 mins.. Very unfair! Happened to me in many cases!
