Thanx for ur support...may i ask wat date ur taking ur exam? Actually i dont feel like i should rely too much on my uwsa 2 score. It's a huge risk .. i had some of my family over they just left and so i didnt really get to study as much...i wanna cover FA at least 3 times in this time...i have my UWorld subscription for 8 more days ill revise it as much as i can n then ill just rely on FA and my notes after that...i'm actually glad i postponed i had too many breaks too close to the exam..but now i cant postpone anymore that's the last date i can get for my eligibility period...

Default Time to train harder than ever...

Hey thanks for ur reply drciri. I also wanna get above a 90 but to do that we have to aim higher...I think it really affects ur mind when u study u tend to absorb more if ur aim is high. If we study continuously in these last days (i have about 19 days left) we can do it. But no more breaks okay. It's now or never. We have to know FA so well that we know where to find anything and we can remember in our mind what page says what. And we have to do at least 150 questions a day. now is the time to POUND FA into our minds. We have the knowledge we just gotta reinforce it now. Good luck to you all. And please remember me in ur prayers. Insha Allah we can do it.

well honestly i havent taken a date yet, its just too much money to pay and transfer the date in my region. but am looking at maybe 3rd week july (hopefully). similar situation for me, not being able to give it as much as I was a week ago, i think ill prob take a day off and then get back to things, might help.but i have to say, i improved about 15 points on the nbme in less than 2 weeks (with my wayward mind). and ive heard of people doing a lot more. i still have 40% uw left which am gonna try and get thru along with another read of fa by 10 days and try another nbme, if i imrpove another 15 pts then ill schedule the exam a week after, coz im almost done with this now!

Hey guys,
My exam was schedule for June 28th! But clearly I was not ready to take it at that time and I extended my exam to August 24th! I am doing UW and Im only done 20% But I have gone over FA twice. My goal is to finish UW, one read of FA and one NBME by the end of July. Right now Im giving all the time to UW and trying to get up to 2 blocks a day + review. After that - one quick read of FA and take an NBME. I still have 40 something days left as compared to you guys but I know what it feels like to take long breaks and having days where no matter what I do, I just can't get in the study mode! Good luck everyone! Keep on keeping on and don't give up. Last couple of weeks left and It will be worth it once we are done!!! The way I see it - if we've put in so many months of hard work/studying then the last few weeks of CRUNCH should def be worth it! GOOD LUCK !
