lets see did you get a good sleep the night before the exam?? what resources did you use? and how long did you study for? i think if you do well on CK you should be able to make it.

I think having a really fair exam generally does not warrant a good score. What
i observed is (from the experiences i read in forum) examinee who has a fair exam generally end up with lower score than he/she expects. I think curve is reasonably high in these exams. So silly mistakes cost you alot. It is like nbme. While ı was doing nbme 16 i thought ı was going to score alt least 250. But i ended up with 240 just because curve is too high. There was a guy in forum who said that the exam was very hard and marked 10 to 15 questions every block ended up with 250 sth.

sad to hear that.
NBME scores dont guarantee anything I guess.
my scores are similar to yours but the exam was harder, hoping for the best.

honestly you should find out someone who has recently matched with that score.
ask them what they had to do extra to fill in the gap.
If you think it is feasible you should give it a shot no doubt.
