Smile Trepinator's exam experience 237/84

Hi folks....recieved my score today 237/84
first of all..anythng is possibl..bottomline..bcoz iam not a brilliant student...i just worked hard..kept cool...

my prep

2 days before exam..nbme 12 offline 167/200
night before exam nbme 11 online 530/228...165 corrct(did some silly mistakes)

day of the exam

i went in with confidnce in my self...
1st 3 blcks were too easy...i was happy...then it startd i got stuff tht i din know...not many long quesns but they tried to trip me off a lottt...i survived:P

i got tired by the end ,, guesssed many quesns....blcks 5 6 were crazy...i guessed like a lot...
blck 7 i saved 20 mins before my 7th blck..so i went well preprd for the las blck....

aftr the exam i felt very relieved...i avoided thnking about exam and results though i had nightmares abt gettng 220s

exam:

anat----got lot of chest xrays ,,, mris of hip jip joint...radial n injury...many gross brain..read em proprly...cranial n lesions...

physiolgy...like almost 5 exercise quesns all types...remaing werre ok...read well the basics

pharma....many direct quesns...knw anti cancr drugs proprly

path...golijan thts all i read...by the time u read subjcts...path will be ok...i did golijan rapid review mcqs.(flash player files)

micro...half of my exam was micro...thnk god i was good in micro...so dont undermine it...

behav sc....my dread...i got 3 repeat quesns in ethics in from all nbmes combined...also 5-6 substnce abuse quesns...i din feel a need for fischer ethics...just do kaplan properly...i struggled with ethics...but luckilyly i got many repeat nbmes...

Congrats! That's an amazing score!


I rarely hear that the exam was predominantly from MICRO ...out of all the subjects. Was it a lot of viruses or antimicrobial resistance type questions? Those are my weaknesses ..
