I'm so sorry man, and I can't imagine but totally understand how painful it can be. Could you please tell us - what was your mistakes in preparation - which questions banks did you use, your NBME scores, exam experience - what you wouldn't do again if you prepare all over again? Your expirience still can be helpful for all of us. Thanks much. Take care. Remember, it is not your worse day, imagine how many people will not see the sunshine tomorrow. Be strong. Take some rest and keep moving !!!

yes, i was confident at that time( but not over confident ) ....but no time to do nmbe...spent my time on u wolrd most till end..preparing from a long time... and already postponed once...i did not xpect it would end up like this...very shocking...the xam was actually tough that day...and i xpected i would get may be low scores but not fail...

i suggest u to do nbme before xam...man even in forums who got 230 or 240 in nbme failed in real xam...dont know how to predcit this xam..somebody who failed nbme has passed but wih low scores...miracles r happening

i suggest not to underestimate the xam...prepared hard...real xam is not like u world questions..far away from that...

It is called "Luck" or "God's Blessing" - miracles exist - but now everything we can do is just to keep studying, keep believing and pray...

By the way - how was your time management, how many hours you slept before exam night, did you take any sleep aids, was there something emotionally could affect your performance?
