Exam-Results When will I get score?

Hi everyone, my USMLE step 1 exam was on the 24th of december, when do you guys think I'll get my score .

Here's my take on the exam
My USMLE world score was 78% ( I did it offline 9 months ago, but I didn't finish it)
Uworld sim exam 1: 234
Uworld sim exam 2 ( a day before the exam): 240

I studied everything from kaplan except for pathology which I did from BRS. IMO, the exam is waaaaaaaaay tooo much EASIER than UWORLD and the simulated exams and I'm looking forward for a good score:sorry:


Merry Christmas

Well you gotta focus on the high yield stuff and memorize FA by heart. To my surprize i got a lot of behavioral science questions, which I relied on common sense to answer. Biostat q were really easy. I would recommend you focus on D-R curves, neurology slides, drug mechanisms, second messengers, G-6-PD deficiency, brachial plexus, the portal circulation, oxygen dissociation curves, PFTs and many more
Regarding my breaks, here's what I did
3 blocks
25 minutes break during which I drank a cup of coffee and ate a chocolate bar
2 blocks
20 minutes break during which I had lunch
1 block
10 minutes break
Completed the exam

It took me almost a year to finish my preparation I used kaplan notes for everything except for pathology which I did from BRS. I subscribed to Uworld for 2 months and did 80% of Qmax in less than a month.

Good luck
