Research dilemma: which medical student should/could miss out?

We're planning some educational research to look at patient feedback for mock medical student final exams. Assuming we are randomising patients into 2 groups and they have a set time for discussion (e.g. 10 minutes) we have an ethical dilemma.

Should we allow the student who get specific patient feedback (3minutes) more time in total (i.e. a discussion time of 13 minutes?)

Or should we allow both groups 10 minutes and include the patient feedback as part of that 10 minute session.

And is it fair to the medical students? We'll be presenting it tomorrow...
