I heard this feeling is quite common...

Can you elaborate on the trickery of the questions? i don't have my NBMEs as high as urs so i should be pissing my pants right about now after your comment.

I made my best guess but i marked like 12 qs per block!
really tricky questions i had 2 days of with headaches after the test, and those 3 weeks were very long for me!! I am wondering only to pass right now! i thin that they gave a very difficult form!

Dr. KnifeHappy Have you taken the step 1?

Well, when I left I felt like I passed. Block 2 was difficult for me- marked 12 as unsure. Usually I don't like marking more than 10. I think the exam was fair- with many questions with high levels of difficulty (I hope those questions do not count towards the score).
I took 6 weeks after 5th semester to study (I go to Ross) as I felt that any more time dedicated to Step 1 would eventually go to waste as I get bored easily.
I just remember the exam having 5 questions on BCL-2. Right now, I just pray that I passed.
We shall see how I did- hopefully tomorrow.

Haha thanks dude...and im sure your result will turn out just what you want...I thought all 7 blocks were of the same difficulty for me....lots of patho as is usually the case...lots of genetics and behavioral sciences which both put me off a bit at times....I usually mark any question I have a slight doubt on so I was marking 15 to 20 per block...I thought the way the questions were structured was pretty close to my last nbme, 15, I scored 257...you gave any practice tests?

I wrote mine on Sep 3rd. The exam was really really tough (harder than any of the exams I took in my life). I had to mark 15 questions per block. I feel that I failed the exam though I scored 228 on my last NBME ( NBME 11). Is there anyone who took the exam on Sep 3rd??

I took mine in Virginia. How did u get the exam? For me the questions were not long but the choices were confusing. For some of the questions, I could not find the answers that I was expecting on the choice list.

Yes I took many practice exams....but I was HIGHLY distracted while taking them- my last NBME was #12: I had a 230- which sucked for me.

I did a practice test at the prometric center 3 days before and scored an 86%.

I don't know- I will list my scores and indicate my experience.

If you took your exam on Sunday, September 8th, shouldn't you get it today? Today is the 3rd Wednesday. I took my exam on Sep 8 too.
