Unhappy Urgent help/advise needed!!!!

Please help!!!!

I have my exam on 18th dec in a few weeks i had already failed my ck before in july got 199. I was actually passing it on UWSA with 224 yet i felt in the real exam i lacked time and strategy to be honest, i had done uworld only once with 62%.

I'm working part time 10hrs aday till 1st of dec. I'm only doing UWORLD so far annotating everything i can and doing blocks on timed tutor subject wise mode in order to grasp concepts better and then i intend to do timed random the 2nd time. my average is so far 73% and i have roughly 38% of uworld left. havent done any NBMEs so far and trying to finish off medicine subjects first. I haven't done step1 yet either but i try reading FAstep1 on concepts i'm weak at....

I really need help of how to do or what to do next. I'm thinking of doing an nbme by 16th nov and reassess followed by MTBs read and then again uworld round 2.


Do you think i have enough time? would you suggest any other rather better book? do you think i should delay my exam? should i use anyother Qbanks?? please please i'll really appreciate your help and guidance

Hey IMG, I think this is a good idea - keep doing NBMEs regularly (like every 2 weeks) to track progress. Only if you are 2 weeks out and the NBMEs aren't looking promising is when you need to think about rescheduling the exam.


Otherwise, I think a 2nd pass of Uworld is helpful.

Also - don't do Uworld in timed tutor, I highly recommend you do it in regular timed mode to get a feel for the time constraint.
