Guys I have about 8 weeks for my exam and i am still doing fa for the 1st time along with 1 block/day U world planning of making it 2 blocks/day and finish off u world along with 1st read of fa in about 2 weeks.
I am kinda tensed cause i am almost done with 3/4th fa and my u world scores have not even increased even by a percent either i go low or i get the same percent and my u world is almost 45% done my cumulative % is really low i mean really really low
So i thinking instead of doing u world i would focus much on studying fa.
Plz share ur opinions or views regarding what should i be doing now cause i have very limited time left so
Thank you

hey, maybe you should take a week or two to go through every single word of FA before doing uworld. before i started uworld, i made sure that i knew FA well enough, and then whatever i got wrong, i annonated and tried to understand better.

hey when u are doing u world first time along with FA also first time... scores to increase in u world is difficult... always remember use u world as learning tool i know people get like 70% in u world cumulative on first go but those are extra ordinary students or already doctors with experience... i'm having the same issue... but i'm taking it positively and i've made up my mind that u world scores aren't going to increase now.. just learn from all the explaination and make sure u understand every question in it.. after u are done with FA once and U world once review it well specially your weak areas and go give nbme to know where u stand.. hope it helps... good luck... keep going.. its difficult... but its doable...
