How it works? OSCE Exams consist of several clinical stations with actors playing the role of a patient with some sort of a medical complaint.

You will be nervous in this situation but please TAKE DEEEEEEP BREATH AND CONCENTRATE. Then a bell will ring. You knock the door and enter the room. You have to read a full page describing what the station ahead is and what is required to do. Please try to read the instruction carefully and understand the question very good.
In each room, you will find a new patient and an examiner. You have to hand out the examiner one or two of your identification stickers. PLEASE WHEN YOU FINISH THE STATION YOU SHOULD TRY TO FORGET THE PREVIOUS STATION AND GO TO THE NEXT STATION KEEP SELF BLAMING TO THE END OF THE EXAM. Did you get what I wanted you to understand?
