I took mine June 29 and it didn't come last week so it has to come this week. Thought the test was pretty hard and questions were way longer than anything I had seen consistently

How would you say the difficulty of the questions were compared to UWorld and NBME?

I know people say the layout of the exam is the same as UWorld, but what about the way the questions are?

questions were more NBME style, not like uworld questions, many questions were easy though, but the main problem was they were too legnthy to finish them on time.

That's unfortunate. I've done much better on the UWorld questions compared to NBME. UWorld predicts me getting above a 245, but highest nbme score is a 230.

Reading FA so late in the game has made me extremely miserable of a person. I can see half of those questions I got wrong in all the NBMEs the answer was somewhere in FA. I made a post earlier about how much I've read, and it sucks that my exam is Monday.

The first half of the book, I'd say I know fairly well. For organ systems, I've only read: Cardio, Endo, some of GI and musculoskeletal, Repro, and Neuro. Using Kaplan pharm, so not reading the pharm sections. Neuro I read such a long time ago, that I've forgotten most of the content.

I keep getting upset and disappointed that I never read FA through the school year, or getting the guidance from professors to read it. I can say confidently that if I had read FA fully, I know I could break a 240. It would easily give me that extra 15-20 point buffer.

Wish I could go back a year...

Any idea when the "Print Permits" link is supposed to go away? I'm pretty sure my result will be in Wednesday but seeing that would be kind of nice just for some reassurance.

FYI to anyone expecting scores this Wednesday, all of my "Print Permit" links etc. have disappeared so I guess the waiting game begins.

I have no idea what to think. My test was pretty bizarre, although that seems to be the case with everyone I talked too. Time was never a factor when studying but ended up being my biggest enemy on the exam so we'll see. Just hope as many as I missed as possible don't count for one reason or another. I don't even want to speculate on a number, it could go either way.

Dont expect the result on wednesday. Its going to be only the 2nd wednesday since ur exam (wednesday 10th not included). U will receive ur result most probably on 31st.

Agreed, the material and how it was presented was not a problem compared to the time. For everyone who has not taken the test yet, I highly recommend really working on time because I thought I had it nailed down (finishing UWorld 12-15 mins early and scoring well) but you can't simulate the real exam, so of course study (sorry I know that is obvious by now), but I never considered time until I was there and the questions were so long I had to scroll down to read them. I was shocked after my first section, had to take a pretty long break to pull it together because it seemed so much different, but I think it was more the whole attitude that, "this is is, and I just bombed 1/7 of it". So learn all the drugs/bugs/diseases, but don't take the timing for granted. Best advice I could ever give anyone taking the exam. It was the one thing I thought I had locked in, and it ended up (I think) hurting me the most.

Thanks for the advice... Appreciate the heads up. Just got one question ... Were the questions similar to nbme 15 in terms of lenght and difficulty....

@aman_J: I didn't take NBME 15 so I can't give you an honest answer, sorry

@milasmoment: Unfortunately I don't think you will be receiving your results this week. Since you took it a week after I did, I would bet that your results will be coming in next week, especially if your permit links haven't disappeared yet.

@JDH: thanks so much for the response. so the permit link has to completely DISAPPEAR right? because my link is still there, but when i click on it- it says its not available. i wish you the very very best of luck in getting your scores!

link disappears means, when u open ur IWA there s no link or any option to go and check your online permit, if the link stays there, but when u click it, it says tht u sat in the exam, it means ur result is not coming this week, can be next week, but u took ur exam.

i know what you mean. but i have tried and even successfully to some extent, to block my mind completely from remembering the exam. last few weeks i just got myself involved in everything else. but now...its time to face the reality. and oh godddd am i freaking out! THIS IS IT. :O

Actual result 237

All the best to you.

Default Hope this helps. :)

@vita86

Thanks. I don't know if its a '99' or not. This 3 digit thing is killing me. No idea if its good enough for something like rads for an IMG.

Anyway, my experience in brief.

One time each:
kaplan notes
kaplan physiology vids
Goljan path book and audio lecs

FA, once before Uworld, once while reviewing it, and once after U world.

Qbank UWorld. Timed, unused, random. cumulative % 72.

NBMEs 7 and 11 as posted above
UWSA1 253
Actual 237

I really hope it helps someone out there. There is hope. Just be yourself and do your best. May your hearts find peace. Destiny is written in the heavens. All the best.

@riyaria

After NBME 7, I basically did what was common sense: get a bit depressed, relax for a day. For the next ten days, I did all the areas marked as the weakest on NBME (as in resp, cardio, b science etc) from FA mainly. Just learnt the stuff up.

There are obviously things which aren't too solid- for resp I had to rewatch the physiology vids, same for behav science and ethics... but the main tool was FA.

That was a tough time. Wanted to give up. But there is always hope and room for improvement. Take a break and do what comes naturally to you to the best of your abilities. It WILL WORK OUT IN THE END.

Best.

Awesome advice Jawaad. Really happy for you.

I'm so burned out today, don't even feel like studying and my exam is Saturday.

@JJacobs152

Thanks.

If you're burned out, you need to rest for a bit. Start afresh tomorrow. But go full speed ahead after that. G'luck!

CONGRATS jawaadq and tenee43
awesome scores, hopefully i score like you guys

regarding the 2 score digit thing dont stress about it!!
even if its 99, 95 it doesnt matter, the directors are not looking for that anymore, now depends on what do you want to match into!
BOTH excellent chances on IM, peds and psychiatry, but dont mind me go for the program of your DREAMS congrats again you guys must feel SO relieved.
