Doctor In The House (1946)

[15]
To a medical student the final examinations are something like death : an unpleasant inevitability to be faced sooner or later, one's state after which is determined by the care spent in preparing for the event.
The examinations of the United Hospitals Committee are held twice a year in a large dingy building near Harley Street. It shares a hidden Marylebone square with two pubs, a sooty caged garden, an antique shop, and the offices of a society for retrieving fallen women. During most of the year the square is a quiet and unsought thoroughfare, its traffic made up by patrons of the pubs, reclaimed women, and an unhappy-looking man in sandals who since 1931 has passed through at nine each morning carrying a red banner saying `REPENT FOR YE DIE TOMORROW.' Every six months this orderly quiet is broken up like a road under a pneumatic drill. Three or four hundred students arrive from every hospital in London and from every medical school in the United Kingdom. Any country that accepts a British qualification is represented. There are brown, bespectacled Indians, invariably swotting until the last minute from Sir Leatherby Tidy's fat and invaluable Synopsis of Medicine; jet-black gentlemen from West Africa standing in nervous groups and testing their new fountain-pens; fat, coffeecoloured Egyptians discussing earnestly in their own language fine points of erudite medicine; hearty Australians, New Zealanders, and South Africans showing no more anxiety than if they were waiting for a pub to open; the
