Mines due on the 11th! Wasn't thinking bout it but getting really nervous now! Messed up the genetics section and can't say much bout ethics. Rest of the exam went pretty good.

Yup. And to go through those long questions not once but twice or thrice!!! Was such a pain !!! There was just enough time to review the questions. Let's hope for the best. Don't think there are many people expecting results today. Just the 3 or 4 of us!

Yes really tensed! Really want a decent score! Did make blunders, hope they don't effect my score. Btw vinaya if you took ur exam on the 27th then you should expect ur result on the 18th, I suppose.

I took my exam on aug 20, but my scheduling permit link is still there. Does that mean I will not receive my scores today?

YOG: nov 2011
Started preparation- On and off since january 2013

Materials used (IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER)-
*Kaplan lecture videos mostly > (read pharmac, anatomy completely, other notes were used mainly to read something thats difficult to understand or totally new)
*Goljan Rapid review Pathology -one time read , took me a month
*NBME 15:- 2 months out _ 450/210
*First Aid along with UWOrld first time (took me more than a month)
*NBME 13:-5 weeks out _ 590/242
*Started off with DIT,wasted a few days in that and dropped cause i didnt find it useful, they just read out first aid.
*Done with UWOLRD first time( 3 weeks before exam) with cumulative score 73%.
*NBME 7:- 3 weeks out _ 600/245
*Uworld Marked questions (almost 800 questions,including wrong ones)
*Did offline NBME - 1,2,3,6,11,12 and free 150 questions, mainly as a learning tool
*revised FIRST AID end to end once more after first read,,, and kept referring to it while reading explanations to wrong answers
and that was pretty much it !!

Real deal - 252/Pass

yup...
i had no clue about the details and stuff, Got to know about the important nbme's and which to do first, and which to do last etc... only in the end...
By then it was too late! I basically just wanted a starting point before i started with FIRST AID and UWORLD

Materials used (IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER)-
*Kaplan lecture videos mostly > (read pharmac, anatomy completely, other notes were used mainly to read something thats difficult to understand or totally new)
*Goljan Rapid review Pathology -one time read , took me a month
*NBME 15:- 2 months out _ 450/210
*First Aid along with UWOrld first time (took me more than a month)
*NBME 13:-5 weeks out _ 590/242
*Started off with DIT,wasted a few days in that and dropped cause i didnt find it useful, they just read out first aid.
*Done with UWOLRD first time( 3 weeks before exam) with cumulative score 73%.
*NBME 7:- 3 weeks out _ 600/245
*Uworld Marked questions (almost 800 questions,including wrong ones)
*Did offline NBME - 1,2,3,6,11,12 and free 150 questions, mainly as a learning tool
*revised FIRST AID end to end once more after first read,,, and kept referring to it while reading explanations to wrong answers
and that was pretty much it !!

Real deal - 252/Pass
thanks i appreciate it

I dunno why is this problem with me too ,what I've learnt is that writing main points again n again while doing uworld n revising first aid are the ways of memorizing.if any one knows some more ways I'll appreciate that really .thanks
