Default Scored 212 usmle step1 :(

I gave usmle step1 on august 16, 2011. After giving the exam i was pretty confident. Was also scoring 230-240 in nbme 11, 12, 7. Scored 232 in both usmleworld SA1 and 2. In world i scored 69% average(all questions in timed unused mode).
I do not know how i messed up the exam. I had prepared for 4 months straight for usmle wd kaplan (video lectures +notes),goljan(RR+audio), grants atlas and conrad fischers medical ethics. I finished the kaplan qbook while studying.
I do not know the next step to take. The score seems very low.. Is there any option of re-evaluation. Can i attempt it again later. I am very depressed because of the score.

hi your score is not bad! so don't be upset but there is something that u went wrong in, and only you would know about it..
i have also read it couple of times from some other students and they were like we r getting 250 in nbme and still got 78 percent or something like it in real exam,
did u memorize the answers and not understand the concepts, maybe your advice can help alot of students here!
thank you and don't worry about ur score now and congratulations on passing ans scoring above 99. you have cleared step 1 and u can still be called an MD if u got with step 2!

I agree with salz. Something must have happened because you were doing so great on UWSA and NBME's. I'm really sorry to hear about this. Nothing would hurt more than an undeserved score.

On the brighter side, you did pass, with a good score so smile and think positive. Better days will come. Good luck on your following endeavors!!

Please do let us know about your progress and how those NBME's were taken (i.e., offline vs. online). If they were done for the first time (with no question memorization). It would definitely help to know what was really expected.

Does anyone know if we can ask USMLE for some sort of revision if one feels that they scored much less than what they should've?

I did nbme in online mode. Uwsa also completely online. I realize it must have been because of my nerves. Still for my satisfaction i want to go for a reevaluation if available. I am plannin to give my step2 in 2013 march.. I do not want any loose ends dats y. trying to pik myself up from this and do better in the next step.
