Man I feel for you, I'm kind of in the opposite situation.

I took the exam Nov 2, 3 days before I got exactly the same score - 228 on UWSA as well.

Here are my other stats, just for reference:
52% Kaplan Q bank - 1 time - done a month before exam.
67% about half of USMLE World - 1 time: done a week before exam
66% Kaplan Simulated exam - 1 month before exam.

I didn't take any NBMEs.

I'm scared that I didn't make it. How are your Q bank percentages panning out?

NO dont please DONT!!! i had a similar score on my UWSA and NBMEs and still went ahead with it.. i failed! 199 so my advise dont do it.

It'll take you another couple hundred of dollars and 1 month more to prepare better and shoot your score by another 20-30 points than wasting a 1000$, having a failure on your CK and reducing your chances of matching and not to forget the inevitable depression that will follow you for another half a year or so followed by restudying and doing it all over again to get a pass in 2nd time where you will indefinitely need to pass and score higher...


I'm suffering from it.. i know! take your time

Oh no :*(


I've already taken it now. Is there any way to cancel your score after having taken it already?

What were your stats, exactly - if you don't mind me asking?

What percentage were the Free 150? I don't know how to get a 3 digit score from Free 150
