Combination of the above two gives the Block mark. A Final block mark of
60% and above results in promotion. A block mark below 60% obligates the
student to write the block examination and the combination of the block mark
and block examination results in the final mark.
A subminimum passing mark of 50% is a requirement.
To gain maximum benefit from these cases please use study time allocated to research possible approaches to these cases.
1-2 Cases will make up part of the block test.
Numerous books pertaining to this block will be placed in the reserved
section of the library for the duration of the block. Of special interest are:
Textbook of Geriatric Medicine – P de V Meiring
The Elderly and Their Ailments - C L Wicht.
