alright guys, my bad, i just felt numb after my exam that's why i was depressed and i did not post in a positive way, my exam was mixed of all material from first aid and punch of WTF questions and some weird anatomy questions never seen it before i think that's what made me feel bad immediately after i left the center, and the funny thing is WTF questions were in my first block , the second and third blocks were good most of stuff from first aid the forth is another mixed block i would say hard cause it contains WTF too, the fifth and six were medium in my own opinion and the sevenths was hard and full of WTF , in general i think it is less harder than the NBMEs, i made punch of silly mistakes, so mistakes+WTF+numerous marked question made me feel the i way i felt and i think most of people have this feeling after the exam.
i did not do good in NBMEs but here my scores

NBME 11 440 = 207 on 26th Feb
NBME 12 420 = 203 on 27th Feb
NBME 7 410 = 209 on 17th April
NBME 13 410 = 209 on 27th April
NBME 16 410 = 210 on 10th May
NMBE 15 480 = 224 on 15th May
i took UWSA1 before all NBMEs scored 226
and i took UWSA2 before NBME 15 i think scored 236

so this is my story with assessment tests

Overall you would still compare it to an NBME in terms of difficulty and question length?

i would say the difficulty level is lesser by few % but i have to tell you questions in real deal are lengthy and i mean it leeeengthly, so you have to manage your time very carefully, in one question i just saw the first answer in the bottom of the page so its longer than anything you have seen before.

Hey dear, congrats on putting step 1 behind u. I can imagine how u must feel but jst try to relax.
U never mentioned anything abt BCH and genetics. A lot of people complain abt those and I have a friend that wrote not too long ago that vows it was more high yield than even path, gen and systemic combined. What's ur take on these?

How many pictures did you get at an average per block... just curious cause some people say every 3rd/4th question includes a picture. Maybe that is a reporting bias...
