Hi there,

The exam is always getting more challenging as the years go by, but as long as you stick to a smart preparation strategy that includes solid basic science grades, a good question bank, and plenty of effort in reviewing the material, you will do well.

Don't let all the hype drag you down, remember everyone is taking the same exam, so as long as you work hard you will do well.

Best of luck.

It's so doable. We keep on seeing guys getting 250+ on this forum. Nothing makes them special other than really working hard in their prep. I think good time management and dedication in studying, a good focus on clinical knowledge, and doing a lot of questions are the recipe to acing this exam.
Good luck everyone.
