Smile Just did NBME 11, feel ready for the exam

Just took NBME 11 got 540/231 . . . . it was the toughest exam I ever took
I was really scared before taking NBME 11 form so its a relief

took NBME 7 on 19/1 got 560/235

On NBME 11 I got bad performance on genetics and immunology. Pls advice me how to improve in them. I feel I know most of the stuff from FA and UW and I am not going back to Kaplan Lecture Notes now.

My exam is on 15th Feb and still 30% of UW second pass left

Thanks guys u all have been so good.

I am now feeling ready for exam

Wow! that looks great!

Since u give UW a second round, you might do some genetics and immuno subject-wise maybe...

Good luck!

Congrats you are going great...I will suggest do immuno from FA once again and try to find out what areas in Immunology are you having problem and just watch the videos for that topics at 2x.And same for genetics.Best of luck

i found nbme taking is toooo stressful .i earlier planned for nbme 12 but i m skipping it now .
nbme consumes whole day and i dint learn anything from it other than predicting the score.
so can i skip nbme 12 ??

you are doing great buddy,congrats..just review FA and UW for the rest of the subjects and as immuno is a bunch of diseases and HSY reactions we need to master if we are good at first 7 chapters of Immuno.So do all the Immuno Q's from UW and know it
for the genetics try reading kapln if u feel like and do UW Q's and it will be fine.
don't let these both subjects affect ur studies

@uworld

u need to learn FA very very well .and for uworld u shld understand most of the concepts real well.Yes FA and UW covers all but v need to master them . . . . which takes times and patience

what i use to do -look up each option of UW from FA . . . so u will repeat most of the things multiple times .its the key i guess.
hope it helps

Wow first of all good job on the impressive numbers on your nbme. I wanted to ask you, when you said you looked up the option of uw fromm fa, do you mean that when you were doing uworld, you would use the first aid to help you select an answer or do you mean that you would look thru first aid only after completing a uworld block?

sounds legit. So pretty much when reviewing answers, don't just look up the first aid on the topic of the question but rather go thru first aid for each different option, like choices a b c d and e, (that way you're flipping around thru first aid and looking at many topics) right?

i guess ill be best person when there a competition in taking breaks

its the fatigue of redoing fa again and again but what other option u got

anyway its just 10 more days of step 1 fa left that's the good news.

i got 78% on offline form that's ~ 220 which is consistent performance so i guess that it....am ready to take head on!!

ill take uwsa 1 in 2 days as confidence booster, hope everything goes as planned!

Cool score in the nbmes!

Why don't you try answering genetics and immuno questions from end-of-chapter quizzes in review books or some other new question source? It might help you remember and clarify vague points in those subjects.

That's just my suggestion. That's what I'm planning to do on my weak subjects.

Good luck! We're looking forward to your great score in step 1!

Which subscription did you buy for uw? Is there any specific reason of why you got it the 2nd time or did you just run out of time?
