Default my story with step 1

• Ok..this is my story with the Usmle …

• In August 2009 I did step 2 CK and step 1 about 1 month apart this was proceeded by combined 2 months prep including FA, Usmlerx and Kaplan MCQ (1000 each)…NO NBME OR US world exam i.e. no benchmarking. Passed step 2 CK (185) and failed step 1(184)!!!!!

• Decided to keep it on hold and early January 2013 decided to try again.


• From 15th January 2013 until march 15th.I read FA x2 and finished Usmle world in two months

• First us world sim exam 189 followed by NBME (15) 189..both within the same two days

•
• AFTER TWO WEEKS and 2nd usmle world exam 214 and NBME (13) 191

• March 15th AT that stage I decided to add something new so I did DIT course for 4 weeks and went through the marked & incorrect usmle world about 1000 MCQs.

• One week before the exam I did NBME (7) scored 210 …


• I decided to go for the exam since I just needed an easy pass.

• On April 24th my step 1 exam, I just got my score back 220!!!

• I think DIT helped me a lot and I felt that in my exam. Good luck every one.

Congrats friend. Since u need an easy pass I know u have done very great. U have met ur aspiration and even gotten higher becos 220 is not an easy score.
