I also studied in Nigeria NSUKKA but i dont think its as easy as u think. u have a lot of time 2yrs house job and service to read. i grad in 2009 did house job last year thought i would write next month but still not prepared. take this time to search know all u need get all ur materials, u can get all on net. immediately u drop pens on ur final exams rest and start then. starting now u may have problems in ur final exams and not grad with ur class is not something u will ever like to remember. i don't know where u are studining but my final year in unec wasn't the type u will be preparing for USMLE.
Where are u studying?

Hope all this helps

Embarrassed

Most of Nigerians doing well write outside, most who write in Nigeria have poor or average scores, highest i have seen is 98, power outages expensive and slow internet connections may be contributory

Thank you drtee...

Well, I don't expect it to be easy...but I'm hoping that if I can do step 1 before I graduate, I could do the next step during house job.

I'm ready to give it all it takes....or is it too far fetched?

I am in Ogun state university.

Correct Answer New info.

I believe passing the USMLE is related to your location only to a mild extent. I will give examples only:

1. My friend (also a member of this forum) who was a colleague at a catholic hospital in a village in benue state studied for n passed CK with a score of 99/245 in june 2011. Six months prior to that he passed step 1 with 99/252 while serving at a hospital in adamawa state.

2. My fiancée's elder brother wrote and passed step 1 while in part 4 in LUTH. He matched not long after his graduation.

Everything eventually boils down to your resolve.
Best wishes.
