Angry 190/75- Unbelievable!!!!

I have taken this exam thrice....yes 3 times.....first time 187/74, second time 184/73 and now 190/75

I am a full time researcher trying to get into residency in US...very old IMG , more than 10 years....already a post graduate from two countries...this is prettty embarrassing.

first time I did not care about the scores, just wanted to pass to get into Fellowship....did not pass...got into Fellowship without MLEs....took another go at it ..thought I prepared well....was expecting at least pass...got 184....now the third time....did USMLE world 3 times, FA three times...NBME 10 (3weeks) - 210, UWSA1(2 weeks)- 224, NBME 13(1 week before)- 234, UWSA 3(5days before)- 234.....thought I will atleast get between 210-230. I am not sure what went wrong...exam seemed pretty straight forward...no bombshells....few here and there difficult ones but,overall was pretty OK...Had a lot of anatomy qs...I answered all difficult anatomy questions well ( as I am a surgeon), thought this will fetch me more score...but.....i have left stars in genetics and immuno...

I have passed many difficult exams before, but man, this one is a BEAST.....I feel the key is the time of prep before exam...at least 3 months staright into exam will help....I had 1month leave....but got good scores in self assesments....donno what happened guys....but this is what it is....now CK...have to get exceptional score to even show my face to my boss...

good luck to all....feeling relieved at the same time
