Hi everyone wish you all the best in your exam. My OSCE will be on 16 of June if any one got some materials that would help me to pass I appreciate if you could email those to me.
I just read you was failed osce exam. I have same problem. I would like to ask you how was your second one? That was more difficult than first one? Can you give me any advice?

One of the stacion was to choose the instruments and material for class 2 cavity but the patient had overactive thyroi. 2 options Amallgam or composite ? I choose Amallgam but I think now I made the mistake dose anyone know wich one was right . Thank you
Hello i am doing osce Saturday 14th June, my second attempt and definatly
My last one, very expensive. I failed by 2 percent.
Stations I had was alginate, labelling burs, fainting woman, explain needle stick
Policy to trainee nurse, orthodontics, label X-rays, man from school wanting info about a
Child who was truant, mixing kalzinol, set up endo tray, post operative advice that one
Was written and you at to fill in blanks.

Of me last time.
Good luck everyone

Please don't feel disheartened abou failing. It's not uncommon on your first try and especially if you had a terrible course provider who didn't give you any practice. I would definitely recommend that you should try again as you will have time to practice and you will know what to expect next time, but I think you should change your course provider as many people don't realise you can and there is probably a better one local to you. If you need any help with anything , please feel free :smile:
Hi haver never used this forum before, I did my osce on the 1st Feb and I failed, the course provider did not
Give any training on osce and as a result I have to resit in June, feel so disappointed as it is not cheap another £375
And extra money to be with course provider. I am put off doing exam again and feel like giving up
Has anyone had same experience as me? I feel so disappointed failing.
Bet you're all glad its over for now! that osce was so weird! really not what i expected and i have no idea what to think of it. I messed up one mixing station of kalzinol for sure, the examiner said i should mix again but ran out of time what stations did u guys find tricky?
Hi! Also did osce exam on Friday, thought it was awful! Does anyone know how they mark you, are there a set amount of marks that you have to get per station? Maybe they are then added up and an overall mark given? I found it really hard with not enough time to complete some tasks. Really hoping I won't have to do it again!!
Hi! New to this but had my OSCE exam on Friday....... Awful! Wondering if anyone knows how it is marked, are there a number of marks you have to achieve at each station and then they are added up? I f so what mark do you have to get? Am panicking a bit as it was really tough and not enough time at some stations, particularly to select extraction instruments and write all post instructions in 5 mins!! Can anyone reassure me?
I HAD MY OSCE EXAM TODAY. I DID WELL ON 10 STATIONS OUT OF 12.
I WAS SHORT OF TIME ON 2 STATIONS. 1 WAS TO MIX THE ALGINATE WHICH I COULDN'T DO BECAUSE THERE WAS NO TIME LEFT.
CAN ANYONE TELL ME HOW THEY CONSIDER THE PERFORMANCE TO PASS US? DO WE NEED TO PASS ALL STATIONS?
CAN ANYONE GUIDE ME WHETHER THEY FAIL US IN THE EXAM IF WE FAIL 2 OR 3 OSCE STATIONS?
Hiiiii , I am more than nervous, lots of confusion informations and I think on the time that I have to talk to them i will completely forget a word ..... So difficult moment .... Can anyone give more informations about the Osce? mY test willl be tomorrow ..
I too have my exam 1st Feb! argh! so not prepared! i have done my course through a training centre which i must say were TERRIBLE, as we never get any help, the tutor is always away, didn't have any mock exams for the written or this osce- so i feel as though i haven't really attended any classes.
To prepare i suggest reading the basic guide to dental instruments, relevant levisons chapters, going through the spotters list, practicing mixing cements and alginate as much as you can, learning about fissure sealants, oral health advice and dentures. What i have been told is most important is the medical emergency component - ensure you know how to manage the patient in each medical emergency.
I hope i've helped somehow, and don't worry i'm feeling super nervous too!
I had to mix alginate and poly F!
I couldn’t mix poly F to save my life in the first place and when I sat at the station I realised it was a different brand. I read the instructions through twice because it was also a different ratio of liquid to powder so MAKE SURE YOU READ THE INSTRUCTIONS! Even if you think already know! I also talked through what I was doing, explain that its important to wipe your spatula and what consistency you want etc
I also had a role play of someone who felt faint.
Write down 6 different kinds of x-rays (PA,bitewing,DPT ect)
I had to role play giving diet advice
Role play of a mother demanding to see her 17 year old daughters notes (Make sure you know the law on this)
How to use alcohol hand rub
Choosing and setting up LA for a patient that does not want adrenaline,
Set up for an extraction....
Post op instructions for someone who has just had sedation (They should have a person with them remember)
The chart recording was quite fast but don't forget that it is only one station and just do the best you can.
I can't remember any others! There were a few I struggled on but then I just really went for the ones I did know!!
Good luck! xx

My turn to sit the OSCEs ... really nervous! Any advice or tips from those who've already passed? What sort of stations have come up? Ive heard the charting recording can be a bit fast! Also worries over what sort of mixing I will get...especially if it is a material I haven't worked with before. Also making sure I include all information necessary in advice station!

I feel exactly the same, couldn't say one way or the other. I didn't get any nasty surprises, every station was something I had covered in class, but I agree with you, in that, I don't know if I said or did enough. I felt it was a little dis-organised and there were so many GDC people and a massive amount of helpers, which was a little off putting.
Some of the scenarios left a lot to be desired, some of the sentences didn't make sence and there were alot of spelling mistakes. Nothing was very specific, and the examiners did actually speak and prompt at times, which threw me because we were told that there would be no interaction between us and them except to exchange my candidate sticker.
Well lets keep our fingers crossed, 2 and a half weeks until results, I am sure we will have done fine. You have to remember that this is the first time this exam has been done, they are bount to take into consideration teething difficulties and look at what could have been done better on their part.
I feel very unsure. I couldn't say I 100% failed or 100% pass. I know I made a lot of mistakes but from what I could gather so did everyone else! I felt very pressured when I was in there! Hope to god I pass, I don't want to have to wait 6 months to retake!
With the written I really thought I had failed but I had really struggled with it!
I keep thinking of all the things I should have said and done in the OSCE it's horrible!!
I have my OSCE exam on friday and once again just looking for any advice!
I have just been revising paper charting (we use computer charting at work) I'm struggling to keep up with the voice recording we were sent as revision. It's really worrying me!
If i chart one thing wrong I assume that means I fail that whole station?
Does anyone know how they are actually marked?!
I work for an extremely laid back practice so I'm worried that if we have to do things quickly i just won't get it right!
As for my mixing well I probably won't even bother unless its temp bond or alginate!
