You need to review and do FA and know it like the palm of your hand, do qbanks !! You can do Goljan or Pathoma, Pathoma is just 218 pages.


This are the advice that my medschool and friends who took it give to me.

You can do it !
Good Luck

a little confusion here..did you study anything before taking nbme 11 or have just started studying and took the nbme to see where you stand? if you have just started 3 months is too less..especially if you are an img..

oops..i missed the Kaplan qbank part in your post..give another nbme in a month to see how much you improved..and do uworld and first aid..and then decide when to give the exam accordingly..you are thinking of 100 point improvement..i wouldn't say it is impossible but u'll have to work very hard for it..forget about 3 months now..even if it takes 5 months u wouldn't want to compromise on a good score..but make sure you assess your progress every month by giving nbme..if you want to expect 250 on the exam u should atleast get a 240-245 on the nbme 10-15 days before the exam...good luck

U can still make it. It depends on u. If some of us take nbme now it would be disasters like ur score. That is why I always believe that I would take nbme when I think am well prepared meaning can recall most of Kaplan, doing well in uworld, have done FA at least 2 x. If u have done thesenand u scored 144 then something is wrong some where!

shima. you are discouraging every one. u told me no one can improve more than 30 score no matter how much you study. please stop this. if you can not do this, do not assume evry one is like you. if you think something is difficult, try giving some encouraging advice like, ,you have to work aloot, you should extend your schedule for a few more months etc.

buddy Iam a realist, I say it how I think it is. 4 people told the OP he can get 250 , I told the OP he has deficiency in his basic sciences.
dude, he got 144 for his 3 digit score. if god comes down he still will not get 250 in 3 month.
he needs to learn and strengthen his basic science foundation.

and if I told you you cant increase it by 30 , I take it back, you will increase it by 50 are you happy, did it make a difference.

I have helped many people on this forum, people who want to be realistic , people who ask for help, my comment for the OP is clear he will not pass the exam even,, if he/she does not fix his basic science foundation.

hey i haven't given the exam yet, but after doing kaplan books when i did kaplan diagnostic exam my result was really low, it has alot to do with cause u cant recall stuff and u dont memorize everything in the kaplan books

Dont be discouraged ever since i started FA and usmle world, everything changes you retain more stuff and you focus on knowing wat to memorize.

Lets calm down pls. U may disagree with somebody but for God's sake lets learn to tolerate each other in a polite way. First of all someone may not side with ur view that does not mean that u are wrong and at the same time that does not make the individual wrong. Poepl may talk base on the evidence they have. Several suggestions would come our way when we open up ourselves for pple's imput on our threads. So we shd hv a big belly to swallow the various sizes of foods as well. Friends all the best!

let me guess you are one of those people who did bad on the step, angry at self now projecting on me for telling how it is.

OP asked if he can improve his 144 to 250 in 3 month.
Answer) No , learn to hear the truth.


Fallacies ::: are you kiding me, look at marks of people who match, people who did well in this journey. My advice and answers are all based on evidence.
I also wish you well in your future endeavors.

plus, we shall see in less than 10 month.
I , unlike other people who matched and do not return , will return to help those in need and spread the reality of hard work for the hardship ahead.
The next time I quote you will be to tell you where I matched.

But as my nature, I am not mad at you.

I respect all who try hard to learn as much as they can to serve the patients they treat.
