Unhappy Low score.... Frustated

Just got my score, its 197. My exam was not that bad. I was expecting around 210.

Yeah, my prep was not complete, but I had to sit for exam. But I didnt expect that low score.

What should I do? Is there any hope for me? Step 1 was the first step for me and should I continue my study?

I know all the people are getting great scores,could I get get matched with that low score??

Congrats to all who did great score. If if u guys have a minute, please advice me what should I do.

Its really a painful moment of my life. Dont know how to recover!!

First of all , congrats on getting done with this horrible exam .. It's itself a big achievement .. I have seen a lot of IMgs with this score who got matched ... Key is more clinical and research experience .. Score is not the only thing they see ... Trust me ... Plus you can always boost your chances by showing improvement in CK ... So get done with CK .. Get good marks .. Do observership / research !! I havd seen most of confidantes who ended up being a resident in department where they use to work as research assistant or observer .. So don't worry .. Everything has a solution and for you solution is good links , good LORs , some us experience

Hey man, don't worry about it - MANY people don't even pass the Step 1. You only see/hear about the very few/minority that seem to get high scores. A huge amount of people fail it. So be happy with your pass and focus on destroying Step 2
