Around 3 weeks buddy.

You have finished it the exam time to relax. There is no need to feel bad about it now . All it matters is that you gave it your best shot. Now is the time to and enjoy with family and friends that you pushed aside.

How did you prepare for it ? Where did you feel that you fell short in?

Hi, thanks for ur reply

No waite to see my score. I am totally hopless.The exam was really hard for me. It was like the first time I was read the UW q. The format was exactly the same as UW. In each block, I had anly 6 or 7 qs that I was totally sure about the answer!!!! That made me so nervous about my result!! There were some qs that I had no idea about what it was asking!!! But my major problem is time managing for each block. U should work on it, if u feel u might have a problem with that!!!!

thanks a lot Citadel08. I really appreciate that.
everybody said step 1 is everything for getting residency.I'd studied so hard for this exam and during the exam I knew that I would fail or get a low score. and now it happens.
have u known anyone who get a low score in step 1 and get a residency in surgery or OBGYN?

FYI iam an IMG !so make it even more impossible!

actually I tried my best for this exam. I don't know what was my weak points,that s the problem so I don't know how to study for step 2 anymore!!
as I said I'd studied for a year and a half for this exam,i had been under so much stress and pressure during this time .because in all my nbmes that I took in different time ,I failed! I got :
nbme 15( 9 months after my first round of study the kaplan with uw):165
nbme 11(11 months)183
nbme 13(13 months) 189
nbme 7 (14 months) 170
nbme 12(15 months)169!!!!!11
so u can see in that all of them I failed and I became depressed after each of my scores for couple of days. but I didn't give up. I studied as hard as I could . I Read first aid again after each scores and did uw 3 times and kaplan qs 1 time.and wrote down every things in my notes and reviewed them a week before my exam. I did uwsa 1 as well about a month before my exam and got 200!
but after all this attempt I did this low score ! I don't know where was my problem . maybe I didn't concentrate well during my study and also I had a problem with the time managing. I KNOW I have to get a good score for step 2 but I don't know how I am totally hopeless.
any way this was my journey,I hope the best for all of u guys .try ur best and concentrate well.good luck. if any one has any idea about my weakness or the way I studied plz plz let me know .I do need help.
