Smile Thankful

Results finally out...Now i feel so much relieved.Had 226/85 which i believe is a good score considering the circumstances the morning before my exam.
I barely slept 3 hours,woke up at 5am and started panicking as i could not go back to sleep,lying helplessly on my bed for 7 hours praying for sleep to no avail.I even remember calling prometric if i could cancel that morning.
My advice to future exam takers-Ensure you get enough sleep the night before your exam so you are fresh for the exam.I owe this to my wife for a statement she made an hour to the exam-'your life depends on this and you've been studying for almost a year now'.

My Exam experience-My head was heavy throughout,however,i found some questions easy,a lot of applied genetics-not straight forward,anatomy,phamarcology,microbiology and pathology.
My Study plan-kaplan videos,kaplan lecture notes,First Aid(5x) and USMLEworld(2x),and NBMEs(offline)-3,6,7,11,12.You can make it,give it your best and ace the test!

I personally found the UWSA more predictive-220 and 224 even though i made silly mistakes as i did them when i was sleepy.
I did the NBMEs offline,though i timed myself

NBME 11 scores were-34,38,40,42/154
NBME 7 scores were-40,40,33,40/153
NBME 3 scores were-39,39,38,44/160
