ps and share your experiene and method of studying
my med school had us pass the comp exam given my NBME and get a 72 on it to pass... at first i took it after i first read first aid and got a 53. then i took it again after more studying and taking a kaplan couse i got a 66 then i took it again a got a 72 after i studied kaplan books, UW and just reading and doing Question bannks like Kaplan, Rx and UW... 72 was equivalent to a 205 on Step 1.. SO i then spent 5 months studying for step 1.. I watched all of kaplan videos again, i read UW 2013 offline . Kaplan 2013 OFfline, i watched all of Pathoma and read the pathoma book.. and Finally i read all my notes i wrote since i started studying (7 notebooks) .. then i wrote the exam...
I still feel bad about getting a 204.. I have never heard of such a low score on STEP 1 before... I dont know if i can even celebrate now.. I feel like im doomed.. What will everyone think of me... I can never say my score proudly.. Feel really bad.. Is it even okay? i cant find anywhere on the internet about ppl getting lower usmle scores..
