Unhappy Disappointed with 232 Score

Hi this an img who uses your forum quite avidly and has been helped by your forum. I would like to say thank you for everything.
I am very disappointed by my result a score of 232 (I had set an target of 250)
I did the exam in August took 6 months for preparation. I did 3 NBMEs 7-198, NBME 13-231 NBME 15-240..
Used first aid annotated with U world and usmlrx and a some stuff I just kept adding on.. About 3000q and 3 revision of my first aid.. I did not reach my target and I don't see any light at the end of tunnel now. My expectations have been shattered.. Is there any way I can cope up with this low score.... I would grateful anybody can reply and any advice on my usmle step 1 preparation I will happily share.. Because knowledge is sharing.. I feel really troubled though..
Feel quite disturbed by this very low score.

You know what; I'm quite disturbed? When people with scores above average call them "low". It's low only for Radiology, Plastic surgery and Dermatology. If its one of your target specialties, please disregard this message.

My advice is to take a deep breath and change your perspective. I would recommend the following approach:

Generally speaking, problems in one's life fall into two categories: something bad occured or something good did not occur. There is a big difference between these two problem types: The former is far worse than the latter. Getting fired is different than not getting promoted.

So, which one is yours?

First of all, did something bad occured? Bad in this context is failing the Step 1 or getting a very low passing score, which practically means a diminished chance to get a good residency spot in the US. (But even that isn't totally bad, for even if you fail, you can try again, and if you score low, you can make up for it with other stuff and thus claim a descent spot of your choosing).
Did any of the aforementioned misfortunes occur to you? Nope.

What's the case? An under-score. Now, I can totally understand some frustration. I'll have my exam in a week, and I'll be truly disappointed if I drop 9 points from my latest NBMEs, despite that, objectively, it won't be a bad score. However, it is important to assess the situation realistically: you didn't claim a 'dream' 250, but did score above the mean. That's not a small feat. That's not a negligible deed, or something to be crying about. It may not be as impressive or shiny as a 250, but it is still an adequate and hard-earned score. So, in your case, it's just that something good has not occured.

Should such an event make you feel miserable? NO! It's not like your life will suffer as a result, or you won't be able to advance as a doctor! Regardless of rumours, a lot of residency spots will consider you if you apply, and look at your additional qualifications.

To that matter, it would be useful if you could channel any and all negative thoughts into productivity. It takes a great deal of resolve to accomplish this, but our true strengths shine best in times of crisis. With a 231, getting the residency spot of your choosing may have become a little more challenging. Embrace the challenge and work harder and smarter. It's not easy, but that will give you a reason to be proud once you make it.

Besides, patients don't need good step takers - they need good doctors, and there's so much more to that than any test can depict. Plus, the Step score is static : noone prevents you from studying harder and augmenting your medical knowledge and capacity. Really, I would give to you the same advice, regardless of whether you got a 220 or a 280: 'Congrats. Now improve.' Doesn't matter where you stand in terms of skill - there are always ways to improve your medical capacity and offer more to patients. After all, modern medicine changes fast, and as such, there is a constant need to implement new knowledge and skills in your medical practice.


The bottomline is, there're always gonna be failures, setbacks, backfires and other stuff like that.
- Learn to distinguish between the small and the big ones, between those that matter, and those that don't matter so much.
- Regardless of how bad the situation, always try to turn the tide. Remember that when the going gets tough, the tough get going.
- Sometimes, even the best of us fail. Don't hesitate to seek help, professional and otherwise (family, friends, significant other...), if you see that you have persistent feelings of sadness, guilt or self-worthlessness.

I'll close with the last lines from a favourite poem of mine, Ithaca, by C.P. Kavafis, inspired by the return journey of Odysseus to his home island, Ithaca:
''And if you find her poor, Ithaca has not deceived you.
Wise as you have become, with so much experience,
you must already have understood what Ithacas mean.''

Im and IMG, old grad myself at first. Secondly, what about people who read your thread with scores 220 and below? How they supposed to feel? Like losers? Do they have to quit now and forget about residency? Its a public forum and you place discouraging thread for other folks.
Thats all I can say

I think that's because he/she scored well in the last nbme, maybe thats the reason of feeling disappointed... but i think truthseeker should take it as a challenge and try to get an excellent score in CK, if he/she keeps on feelin disappointed like this, then it will be bad for CK .. that's just an opinion

truthseeker your score is one so MANY are dying to have, feel blessed that you have that score and even though it was not your target score who cares! you did your best and thats all that matters, my thought in life is EVERYTHING happens for a reason, so maybe you got this score for the journey to become more challenging and get a hard grip on it, otherwise with a high score maybe you would kinda "laid back" a little bit unconciously dont you think?
everything is NOT lost but you GAINED a very good score, on behalf of me CONGRATS! i would die to get a score like yours, im aiming for 250 because i want to give my best, but if i end up with score like yours ill be HAPPY cause i KNOW i gave my best shot, so feel proud about yourself!! dont be so hard on you
youll get the residency you want, just keep repeating it to yourself and youll get it.

Feel quite disturbed by this very low score.

You shouldn't be ashamed of your 232 score. It's an excellent score. Remember, you 2cs, 2ck, and 3 left. Work on those on your way up.

The light at the end of the tunnel is not your score, USMLE is a marathon don't let one thing set you back.... at this time you can be your worst enemy, how you handle this is going to be the difference... bounce back and do as well as you can in CK & 3

BTW my score is 235, although I wanted a better score.... I am just moving forward.... This forum has helped me so much with that

I am sorry but I don't mean to hurt anybody sentiments but just describing my own. I can't walk in anybody else's shoes and I guess nobody can walk in mine.

ashamed of 232..!!!!! you should be more than happy that you were able to get a score comparable with your NBME's..ask those whose NBME score overpredicted by like 20 points..
moreover, its above the mean and 232 and 242 doesnt make much diffrence..there are so many things in your application that the programs consider..one score doesnt mean everything..had you failed or got below 210 then it would be a red flag..
focus on other areas of your application..there are people who get in 240s in both steps and land up no where..so a good score is vital but its not the only thing that's important.
and by the way such posts might be offensive to people who worked hard maybe studied twice as much as you did and still failed or got a low score..some things are not under our control..be thankful that you got a 232 with six months preparation..

Ouch !! that was harsh !! see, everyone has some expectations acc to the prep they do and nbme's result they get , and if somone is disappointed with his/her result then we shouldn't be harsh on that person, rather, same thing can be explained by encouraging him/her.

Get some USCE and try to take up some research work.

And anything above 230 is a good score.

I would like to thank you for your reply and ur advice. I appreciate it very much and with regards to your other comments I am sorry to say that I did not mean any offense but I don't think we need to make such comments which make me feel that this community is biased and not free for all to use along with no ability for me to restrict it's viewing to only few people. I think ur comments are uncalled for and unfair to me...

I think everybody has circumstances which are different and everybody has a different background and different things which matter to a person in life. I think it's highly unfortunate that everybody is targeting me. I hope you guys can learn to be tolerant to different views and different people's feelings in different phases of life..

I too am disappointed with your score. Only a dismal 232!! Now what are you going to do? Lord have mercy on those with a lower score.

Sarcasm intended

IMO i told you to be happy about your score and that its a good score at the end of the day which wont land you in trouble..and in USMLE you always have another step where you can do better than the first one..
regarding this forum, its the only forum which is not biased..see the bigger picture here. You are done with step 1 with a respectable score which might be lower than what you expected but its close enough to what your NBME 's predicted..and i dont think my comment was harsh in any way ..Its what the reality is..I guess its you who's being too harsh on himself ..so chill and celebrate..!!

I am highly disappointed by the sheer lack of sensitivity shown by some people on this post. I have no disrespect to anybody on this platform and I thought freedom of expression is valued here. I was wrong. Another thing the circumstances I gave me exam and my background is totally unknown to anybody here and I wished somebody would respect that. I have never said my score is this much and its bullshit. It didn't meet my expectations and also I was concerned about many things in my family and the time frame I need to apply so many things and the current trend of increasing competition . I wished people would be sensitive to feelings and understand things and not be childish and sarcastic.except for few people who genuinely help.. Whom I want to thank so much for their kindness.. And I hope nobody to reply further to this comment now.. Thank u.. I rest my case and wish to end this post. I hope all things happen for a reason. Thank you everybody for all ur help and sarcasm too.
