Default Serious help needed!

I am an IMG, my step 1 exam is in 65 days!! So far i have covered micro, anatomy, behavioral science, immunology and biochemistry in FA and U world questions. I still have the 3 P's (Pathology, Pharma and Physiology) to cover. I am literally freaking out, i am looking for any advice you guys can give me. I am planning to do Pathoma for pathology, FA and then u world questions. Are there any Uworld notes available? I seriously regret not taking notes and wasting all my time and now i do not even have the time to take notes now. Help would be really appreciated!! Thank you guys..

Is it possible to do this in 65 days with all the revisions and self assessments?

It might be possible revision, but if you are thinking that you will not have to do enough questions after revision, i would extend the date instead of pushing it through.

I completely agree. If you aren't confident in your ability to pass, and pass well, postpone your sitting date. Step 1 is too important to gamble with. As obvious as it sounds, you only get one shot at a first-time passing score. IMGs, especially, need a competitive score.

Thumbs Up Think what's best for you!

I was there couple years ago. I pushed harder than I should had. I was studying 11 hours a day and I was not eating or sleeping properly. I end up being sick and was on bed rest for a month and a half. Extend you date if possible and just focus on what you have done so far. The knowledge is there!! Take that extra time to focus on what you feel you are missing.

I hope you don't make the same mistake I did 2 years ago. Now I am starting the process all over again but trying to stay healthy.

Hope this helps.
Best wishes.

Do Pathoma, FA, and USMLE World about 6-8 hours a day for the next 60 days and you will pass this exam.
