USMLEWorld UWSA for Step 2 CK

Hey guys, i took UW-SA EXAM today and now half way through finished 3 blocks and left with one more. am getting depressed after taking uwsa, my confidence level is gone down with exam this week.

I find the questions difficult and so lengthy and no time and when i reached the last question i had just a minute left for it

I feel i did u world better than uwsa.

Those of you who have already taken ck, please let me know if its going to be this difficult like uwsa. i have not yet taken NBME. should i go through atleast offline forms?

Please let me know your views on this.

Thanks.

well yes UWSA is difficult than NBME and may b the real test as well atleast what i know only 3 out of 8 blocks r tuff like this but UWSA needs less correct answers to score more.what i mean by this is , in UWSA u need to answer 28/44 correct but in NBME 35/46. 177 in UWSA doesnt predict pass , try taking another test if u do well then it's okay! otherwise u need more revision! thts how i interpret it.

I don't think you are ready to take your exam in 5 days. Your UWSA doesn't predict a pass, and honestly 5 days isn't much time to push that up significantly. I feel that you really need to take some time to revise the material, then take an NBME to see where you are. I would postpone if I were you! Good luck!

Default This came at the right time

Dear Road2success

I think it is telepathy
i finished uworld assesment step2ck 2 hours ago and i scored 188 ( i studied 7 months 10 hours a day and i took notes and i have uworld 62 % overall unmixed untimed)

So let's make a strategy to boost it up , what i hated about this test is that the questions are so indirect , like they dont give you the problem in a clear way , i did nmbe4 fiirst 20 questions ( i got 18 right) so maybe its uworld test that is not really well written !

Good luck my friend , and i think im gonna repeat uworld twice , i really wanna do well and i will score very high

Tc
