Also took mine end of August.
NBME 5 226
NBME 6 224


I thought that was the most difficult exam I had ever taken. It seemed more difficult than UWORLD. Expected 220s going into test. When I left the prometric center, I felt as if I failed. Best of luck to all of us.

Default exam was on 28th

Getting nervous just thinking about scores coming out. I won't even be able to check u til possibly Friday as I will be flying over the Atlantic when results come out :-[

I also felt as though the question stems were really long. I had just BARELY enough time and there were a few wtf questions like 3 per block. Just figured they were experimental questions and kept moving on. Didn't have time to review but that is probably a good thing. I felt like for the most part everything was a blur. I hope I hit a good rythym and didn't make too many dumb mistakes.

Scores:

NBME 7: (2 months out) 214
UWSA1: 252
NBME 11: 233
UWSA2: 254
NBME 13: 228 (Some of the nbme scores +/- 2 cuz I don't remember exactly)

Good luck everyone. I'll pray for you guys, I felt like that was not as easy as some people play it out to be. Hope to god the step 1 score'ers are fair and although the exam was tough I get a score I deserve and isn't overly critical/penalizing :/

I agree August was the worst month. Even thinking about the exam gives me chills.

Wow, and i thought i was the one who felt the exam was hard, probably the hardest test i have taken in my life, apparently not, i think i screwed up a couple of simple questions just because i lost my cool for a bit but had to keep going, and yes, the length of the questions, i mean i heard so many ppl on the forums say there were 3-4 lines in questions, i didnt even get one! I also just picked my fav letter for the last couple, have no idea how it went though, makes you feel like all the prep was a joke. Hope we the best of it. Best of luck all.

We worked our asses off. We will pass. That's a guarantee. It's just a matter of getting the score we want.

Have faith in yourselves.

I share your feelings, but all we can do right now is wait even though time perception seems jaded, focus on the scores we wish to achieve, and hope we cross that line with flying colors.

I feel as though my expectations are too high and no matter what score I get I'm going to be saddened. can someone put into perspective for me, as an img, what kind of score's required to get into something like internal medicine or emergency medicine

I passed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And I did pass. I took on Aug 28th and by it was worst beast ever. I pass and I got 191. In the name of GOD, thank you so much and thank you for supporting me, giving me the courage to study this exam and thank you for passing me on my FIRST TRY!!! Thank you God. Thank you.


So, my friends, I pass and I got 191 which is roughly 80%. I am very happy about it. I spend nearly 2 years of this prep. A lot of stress and emotions went through it. You might come and say 191 is not good score. But I tell you straight up, I pass on my first try. I think that's the most important thing when it come STEP 1 itself. That is you pass. Now I will work on to Step 2CK and 2CS and Step 3.

Also, let me point out one thing, in my whole life, I am not an excellent exam taker. However, I am able to communicate, explain, and teach freely. Besides, it's not the score that is going to save patient's life; it's the type of person with communicating, and explanatory that's going to save patient's life.

I'm sorry here I won't be able to help you much but others who have some experience or have gained clinical experience may help you better. On the other hand I will go for cs next june july that's when I plan to do externship/usce probably a paid one.
