Arrow Step 1 score 227/82

hi.. saw none has posted their scores lately.. don't know why..
got my scores yesterday..
It's 227/82 i guess its 98 according to the old scoring pattern..
I was terribly disappointed ..
all my assessments were 245+ even NBME 12 that I did 5 days before exam was 245..
well I don't know what went wrong..
I found the exam to be difficult and had the feeling immediately after the exam just like everyone has that "God !! what the $%@% just happened !!! "

anyways I was still confident of 235-240.. I guess **** happens !

but now I am done with grieving.. its time to move one..

yes I am still sticking with usmle unlike so many others these days who think getting 240+ is of utmost importance otherwise go back to home country residencies..
but I hope being a fresh grad and having some USCE will help me..

onto CS then CK for me...

I don't wanna tell you guys what I read or did for me exam because somewhere i did go wrong and couldn't achieve my consistent scores...

just be confident and take the exam guys... DON'T BE SCARED !!!

I was afraid initially but on exam day i was confident..

remember whatever you're reading is the right thing.. just stick to whatever you're comfortable with.. if you don't like Goljan or find it lengthy.. don't read it.. READ AND DO WHATEVER YOU LIKE/are comfortable with .. and go for the exam with confidence..

Don't ask me what i read / did for the exam .. because you guys already know what to do !! just apply it...

I am not happy with my score .. not because its not a good score.. i know its a decent score but because. I know I had the potential of more...

but I'll accept it nevertheless..

good luck guys.. and and advise.. don't waste much time on reading experiences like this one :P lol.. but study.. and study hard..

I know you get distracted.. and everyone does.. because you're online all the time.. but just try.. and you will find that concentration in you.. and don't just sit and home and study.. go for regular walks/gym/outings... and in the meantime just stick to the plan

Good luck

hey.. just keep doing whatever you have planned.. and am sure you have one.. just believe in it
and just give it this time.. that's most important.. don't postpone it more.. as if you're done with your banks then you should give within 15-20 days.

congratulations!

your post is no-nonsense!!! i like your attitude! for moving on. recently, i've been browsing through this site and yeah youre right, nobody has been posting their scores recently. i'm shocked with 227 as 82? coz all the while i thought that should be 97 or 98 seriously.....

i like your positive attitude. you are right, usce and being a fresh grad will make the difference. oh not to forget, you still have cs and ck to finish definitely with flying colors....with the positive attitude you have

thanks for the advices, means a lot.

good luck and God bless

I'd say give nbme and decide . And please only do online nbme with assessment . Do form 7 and you'll know where you stand .

Kaplan qbank is great. But I doubt how much more info you'll be able to gather as you must gave done 2500+ questions already. The key is to read,understand and apply the explanations of all questions.
