Unhappy 3 months left

only 3 months left and I have still got to do behavioural science, micro, and path. Right now doing anatomy. Physio, biochem and pharm done (kln+videos+uworld offline). First aid gone through some sections.


My question: Can I finish my preparation in these 3 months?

Please let me know honestly.

Default NBME

The best way to know if you can finish in 3 months is to do an online NBME and see your 3 digit score. If it is within your target score then 3 months is enough provided that you stick to FA and U world. preferably uworld online.Hope this helps.

My question: Can I finish my preparation in these 3 months?

Please let me know honestly.
Absolutely! 3 months is more than enough time as long as you have a plan, a schedule, and can stick to it every single day.

As others have mentioned, use the NBME's to gauge your strengths and weaknesses and use that feedback to direct your studies.

But consider that if you work hard, you can get through a single topic in a week's time, which gives you plenty of time to cover what's left, review, improve, and assess. Don't panic 3 months out, the stress will only impede your ability to concentrate, you have a TON of time... write out a daily action plan and stick to it 100%, and you will be good.

Best of luck.
