Default thanx sana!

My study plan was very simple.
I have seen and listened to many potential test takers studying many books and doing a lot of q-banks both online and offline. I made it very simple for me. I went through the Kaplan lecture notes in 1.5 months, then again in 2.5 months and finally in 1.5 months again so I made 3 reads of the same study material in 5.5 months. I did only U-world questions twice during my 2nd and third reads. I didn't give any NBME online or offline (as I believe that they make you either over or underconfident; nothing can match the real test) and I did FA just superficially (as going through the study material 3 times won't leave any spaces to be filled by FA; as I think so). I solely relied on Kaplan lecture notes as the primary study (if one thinks that he/she is deficient in pathology he/she can add Goljan to Kaplan lecture notes but I was quite confident on my pathology so I did just the Kaplan lecture notes).
Total duration of my study was 6 months. 5.5 months as I mentioned above and in last 15 days I mostly relaxed and gave another look to U-world (I should also share that i did U-world questions from U-world books not online U-world questions)

ON THE TEST DAY!
I arrived at 8:30am. I did two blocks in one go so I was left with only the last block at the end. i had a break of 10 mins after the first couple of blocks , then after 4 blocks i had a break of 25 mins, then after 6 blocks i had a break of 10 mins so i used only 45mins of my break time and i was free with still 15 mins to go.
test was quite weird in the sense that after every 3/4 questions there was a graph and literally i had almost 12-14 histopathology visuals in each block. i had only two audios in the entire test.
" After i have got my test score now i am a bit confused. i was obsessed of 99 but i made 96. i know i could have scored 99 but somethings didnt go my way during the test. nevertheless i now want to be sure is it a good score as i am planning for an IM residency . all your posts would be really appreciated"
Regards!

Default thanx noothan!

i mentioned in my post that i gave 3 reads to kaplan lecture notes and after 3 reads i dont think so that there is any need for a revision. as we have to answer questions in test ( instead of writing detailed notes ) so concept extracted from the reads is enough. so i did U-world again in the last 2 weeks before the test.
