Unhappy My exam within 10 days, plz help me!!!

Hey!

I just did NMBE form 6 with expanded feedback and I got 510 corresponding to 224 on 3 digit score of step 1.

I don't know how much does it correspond to on 2 digit scale? could somebody tell me?

My worst performance was in behavioral sciences followed by reproductive/ endocrine, hematology/ lymphoreticular, respiratory, nervous/special senses, biochemistry /geneticc ..and ...

I am under extreme stress because I was looking at a score of 90+ and now don't know how to utilize these last 10 days...

I am waiting for your replies until tomorrow and will be pleased to see your guidance.

Hey, don't worry alright? I know it is not easy counting down to an important exam! But, the more anxious you are, the higher chances you will make more mistakes. Always pray before you start doing/ reviewing a block; it helps.

ALL THE BEST!

Arrow Your last 10 days

Your 224 predicted three digit score correlates with a two digit score of 94. See this thread
http://www.usmle-forums.com/recommen...it-scores.html

So you are in a very good shape. Don't let your anxiety underpin your weeks and months of preparation.

Utilize the next 10 days by reviewing First Aid if you have done it before. Do few more blocks. And you can also do another NBME Form just to make sure.

You have to rectify you sleeping pattern right now. Wake up at 6 AM and sleep as early as you can.

Eat very well. Take vitamins and do not be in contact with sick persons.

The last day of your prep you should not read at all, throw all books and relax. Go for a walk if the weather allows. Shave, swim or shower.

This is your peak and you have done very well so far it's just few more days and you'll earn the profits of your hard work.

Wish you all success and make sure to come back here and tell us how you did.

Good luck

Default Thanks

Thanks you very much for your guidance.
In fact I have studied FA twice until now during my preparation. I am going to go through it once more, however, I think if I am able to finish it about three or four days before exam, it will be good to revise my week subject which is behavioral science..and endocrine and reproductive systems (if time allowed).
My last revision took about two and a half months and my performance was bad in those subjects which I revised early ( I mean about 2 months ago ) which are Behavioaral science, physio and biochem/genetics. I think when I do FA this time I will perform much better on the exam, because FA mainly covers those topics that are easily forgetable despite being high yield.
And yeah! God willing I will definitely share my all experience after I take the exam,however, until that I won't be able to join forum. . .

Take care!
