Unhappy Need Guidance!!!

Hello ...
I am a final year student from India....I am pretty confused as of now ......since it was only last year that I decided to appear for MLE....

I plan to give my step 1 during internship ......that is next year.......and I am really afraid coz I din study them with MLE in mind. and nw being in final year have to focus on university exams......otherwise i m a bright student .........and my CV is good enough coz i always indulged in research stuff possible at my level.........
I really feel bad and confused as to what shall i do ....am i too late or 6 months in internship is ok ??
I know i sound terribly silly but please help.....

Hi... Der's a lot of time in hand so don't worry... Getting scared even before starting d journey will not help u... Getting started is d hardest thing but once u get going , all these apprehensions will disappear... For now, focus on ur univ exam and u can alwz read KLN or do a qbank to consolidate ur concepts in between... Hardcore univ exam based study needs to be done only in d end... I kno final yr sub r to be done for ck... Ur basic science concepts need to brushed up but if u try doing basic sciences with final yr sub u ll get stressed... Ck subj r d same as ur final yr subj so y not start solving ques.. This will help u.. M not asking u to take ck first or anything.. dats ur decision but my whole idea is to tell u to consolidate ur final yr knowledge which will be a head start for ck.. Step 1 subj can be revised during internship n u can take it next yr...

Hi there Aspdoc1 ,
Thats a very kind and helpful .........gesture by you ...thanks a lot
As you said I am actually currently doing this Kaplan Lectures and final year books.....though its a bit hard at times ...but i focus on concepts.....but i din touch the lecture notes as yet
still i guess ....its fine for final year.....but the thought of Step 1 scares me..........since at that time i din do lectures notes/videos ...but again your "scared to begin" makes it clear !!!
Thanks a lot
