Sounds horrid and anyone who passes should be proud.
The really horrid part was my own anxiety and stress. When I got that under control, I loved it.
But then, I absolutely love patient care and I'm proud to be able to take care of someone. It doesn't bother me to be watched--and I talked to the patient the whole time, so I relieved myself of the worry of whether the examiner knew I knew what I was doing. (Each one of them knew.) And the patients love the attention.
All in all, minus the stress, it was a blast.
But then, I've often been accused of being a bit different (paraphrased to spare the censors their ink, lol).
Oh, I forgot to say that the school keeps everything very, very confidential. The examiners don't know anything about you except you completed the academic requirements to make it that far. They don't even know if you passed or failed any of the PCS's (patient care situations). Just about as objective as you can make it.
