Congratulations as well. They don't correlate it with 2 digits anymore. The important thing is above the average, which is 228 in my case. How much was yours ?

Mine was 238. But because I am an old IMG. I am still not sure is it good enough in my case.

Warm congs for those who nailed the exam and got their results today. So sorry for us who didn't get it today. Let's keep in this thread, hopefully we can make it next week. I guess last day for today's results was exam in June 19th. I'm so sorry for paravanmerchant because he opened this great thread but didn't get his score. I'm sure you will be happy at the end of the day.

Hi mate. So sorry because we didn't get it yesterday, let's wait for next week. The link should disappear few days before the results (the link itself so nothing at all to go). Where did you take the exam?

Smile Beated my NBMEs

hi. i got my results yesterday. i cannot be more happy. God helped me for sure that day cause i panicked on the first 2 blocks nearly feeling about to faint cause my heart was pounding so hard and fast, and thought i failed or modestly passed.
i ended up with 240!!! i dont care if its not enough for most. for me its more than i expected and i am so grateful. my last nbme before test was 226 (nbme 15) what i mean here is that dont postpone ur test cause you dont reach what you expect on nbmes. if you feel youve covered it all. and you truly gave your 200% intense studying. you will be FINE
be sure to have a good night sleep the night before cause the nervousness and stress on the real test day drains out the energy from you like crazy. i felt like i went to the gym and worked out real hard after the test hahaha. i was sore all over.
congrats to all the people with their results.
Passing step1 is a killer feeling baby!!!!!!!!!

be sure to have a good night sleep the night before cause the nervousness and stress on the real test day drains out the energy from you like crazy. i felt like i went to the gym and worked out real hard after the test hahaha. i was sore all over.
congrats to all the people with their results.
Passing step1 is a killer feeling baby!!!!!!!!!
Congrats drpisho.!!

What was you nbme 16 score by the way?

Just got my score today after being withheld due to incomplete credentials. I got 267 but oh my god it was worth the wait. I thought for sure I wasn't going to surpass the 260 barrier but luckily I did and I had to share it with you guys.
I wish the best for everyone who are yet to receive their scores especially my buddy pranavmerchant because him and I were the last men standing last Wednesday.
I wanna thank everyone on this forum as I have been a frequent visitor here for quite some time and I definitely benefited from this forum and wish to payback to this wonderful community

Thank u very much for the nice words.
My advice for u in the last two months is try to do FA a couple of times and redo the questions u had marked in UW (mu number was 400 qs which took 4 days) and definitely try to do as much NBMEs as u possibly can. Don't try to review new material and a peak at the books u already did never hurts but only on ur week areas and definitely not the entire book. That's pretty much what I did in my last 2 months.

Kaplan review notes (one book contains biostat, behavioral science, psychiatry, ethics) + lange biostatistics. I thought it was more than enough and I did great in these areas on the real exam.

Regarding anatomy, it's absolutely correct that there were alot of hard and WTF anatomy qs on the real exam but i honestly have no idea how to prepare for them. I did kaplan anatomy + some chapters from HY gross + UW + FA. I was able to answer most qs wth ease but the remaining hard ones were out of my league and were definitely not covered in these books. But all in all I did well in anatomy and was in the higher performance on my score report. So i suggest that u dont worry about this and just try to study the ones I did and I believe u will be fine.

Reagarding pathology, I didn't do pathoma but i hear it's great. I did Goljan and loved this book. Goljan definitly gave me the edge and a few extra points on the real exam. I would reccomend it to everyone. I didn't do Goljan audio because I had already done the book but my friends tell me it was fantastic. So basically all these sources are good for patholgy and u should choose any of them according to ur timetable. I don't know about pathoma + Goljan audio but it seems pretty good from what I'm hearing.

No I only did UW. I thought kaplan qbank wasn't gonna help me much and my friends who did it told me it won't and I'm very glad I didn't waste my time on it.
Retrospectively thinking, the only thing I would do is read more anatomy and see more anatomy pics online. Now I know I had a great score and I was in the higher performance in anatomy and I also did enough anatomy materials, but during the exam anatomy qs confused me the most so I would've liked to have been more familiar with these weird qs. I honestly don't what books I could have read to achieve that but All in all I'm very happy with the result.
Hope I answered ur question

Hope I answered ur question
What about ethics. I heard they ask weird questions. Which material did u use and did it cover it all. And also some questions where they ask the most likely risk factor causing it like in nbme 15 and 16. Eg . which is the most likely to cause oesophageal cancer- CIG, alcohol, etc. How do we answer those questions

Got my result today, gave the exam in 24th of June. Got 223.
Prep time: about 4 months.
Finished a PhD degree in March, YOG 2005, married with 2 kids ☺☺
Materials: mostly FA and UW (one time finished in the exam week)
NBME 15: 220, one week in.
I mentioned this information to tell younger folks they can do much better than me indeed both for the prep and the score.
I'm looking for pathology residency, so I took the exam in expenses of the score. Have 3 months internship in Mass General Hospital, and a research post in the university of Chicago.
Wish you all the best and hope your dreams come true in Sha Allah.

Uworld - 68 %
In last week nbme- 13,12,15- 234 (i know, crazy got the same marks in all three of them!)
Free usmle quest- 82%
Real deal- 244

I didnt have time to revise uworld marked questions at the end, maybe that would have increased my score a little.
Revised first aid at the end .... That helped.
The ethics cases were mind blowing, seriously reading 100 cases by conrad fischer did NOT help in this one!!!
Lots of hand anatomy in my exam.
Rest was quite simple and concepts were similar to of uworld.

At the end - uworld plus FA is the main part o concentrate on.
