so i found this thread on ppl who took the exam the same date as us, but last year. it seems people who took it on dec 12 of last year and within that same week got it 4 weeks later on January 8th. so i am guessing you guys are going to have to wait, and should expect scores next week on january 7th, but im not 100% sure. here is the link if your interested January 8th, 2014; Step 1 Exam Results Thread

I asked him if they have score report on Dec 31, (before I schedule my exam on Dec 10!), He said YES! We wont have any delay because of holiday.

Now we see there is no report today!

Between, I am waiting for my Step 2 CK! No report today

Hey 10blade, I think the exam was just like uworld with some easier and harder ones. Overall I felt like I took 7 blocks of uworld questions. I had at least two questions from nbme 16, but I didn't go over the answers from nbme 16, so i didn't know if I got them right:/
How was your exam?


Thank you! Good luck with your results too

yeah it did feel a lot like uworld. First block was a nightmare tho. i think i was just super nervous and i was in between 2 ppl typing the GRE, which really threw me off. But things got better after that. i did go over the answers for nbme 16 but I don't remember getting anything from it. I've recollected questions that i got on the exam and luckily i've got a majority of them right, and some wrong but those are just for the ones i can remember which is like 30-40 or so. Everything is such a blur now, i have no idea what to expect. I just hope i passed at this point cuz i really dont want to sit for this exam EVER again. It is undoubtedly a BTICH.

when you say from nbme 16, do you mean word for word? or similar concept?

so true. It was quite stressful. Definitely don't want to get through this again. I remember some silly mistakes I made. But I am sure there are a LOT more, I just don't think about it. Ya, I had nbme 16 questions word for word. I took it a week before the exam, so i remember. And it is upsetting that i could have got those right for sure, if i reviewed the answers.

I took mine on 18th of Dec. I thought the exam was harder than the nbmes with long stems and I had issues with time unlike my nbmes and uworld. Don't know when to expect the scores.

My link had disappeared by dec 31st but that's probably due to the eligibility period ending on dec 31st.

My eligibility period has finished on Dec 31 too, so my link disappeared exactly on Dec 31... Had my exam on Dec 22, so wont be able to "predict" which Wednesday my results will come out, since my permit is gone already

I took NBME 16 and NBME 15 about ten days before the step. I scored 243 on both of them. Ended up scoring in the 250s on the real thing. It was closer to my UWorld assessments than the NBMEs.

Wow congrats, that's an amazing score. I thought the exam was hard and I'm thinking I may end up below my NBMEs. How did u think of the exam in terms of time and hardness as compared to uworld and nbmes

I honestly felt like the real exam was very similar to the UWorld questions. There were some outrageous things tested on the real exam but I tried not to spend too much time and energy on them.. just guess and move on. It's strange, I found the NBMEs easier but did worse on them; found the real thing harder but did better.

I don't think you should worry too much, it's extremely difficult to gauge how you performed on the exam.. Some days I would feel like I might have barely passed and some days I felt quite optimistic about it.

Congratulations.. I am still waiting for the real score. But I got the similar NBME scores as you did. I got NBME 15 with 243, NBME 16 with 246. I wish that I would get similar as you got with the real one.

I started with DIT, watched it while reading First Aid (I didn't use the DIT book, I wanted minimal resources). This helped set a solid base. I also did USMLERx during the year. Then near the end of my semester I started on UWorld.. random, timed. Once the dedicated study period started, I only did UWorld, Pathoma and First Aid. That's honestly all you need and you can get a 260+ with it. I'll specifically mention that I did UWorld a second time on random, tutor mode. This was immensely helpful for me. Do NBMEs/USWAs weekly to gauge your progress. Let me know if you have any more questions. I can write out a more specific guide if wanted..

way to go ankyrin! Just a quick question

did you score close to your predicted scores? I am really worried about my score. I felt terrible after my exam although I was doing very good nbmes and UWSA. ( I did NBME 12 one week before my test and got 258, did 15 (247) and 16 (241) around 2 months before my test. UWSA 1 260 and UWSA2 265. The test it self was outrageous. My mind was all numb and i was having hard time focusing.

I was feeling so terrible after I came out of the exam as well as just until I received my score. I took 3 nbmes (13, 15, 16) which were one month apart the last one being 3 wks before my exam. I scored 220, 230 and 241 respectively. I took uwsa 1 two wks out and was 248. To be honest, I was expecting a much lower score because I had a much harder exam and barely had time to do the last 3 or 4 questions from everyone of the blocks. I was surprised with my 251 today. God is good! So be optimistic and I am sure you will end up doing way better than your nbmes! And from what I see, you have no reason to be worried. You will kill it.

251 is awesome! I'd be super happy if I end up in 250s. Thank you so much for this much needed moral boost.
