Registration My Journal

That is bad , everyone on the forum wants to comment on ppl with high scores , my repeated efforts to communicate to get help have failed .
I just now read somewhere that " it is better to be slow, then to stop"
I did stop after low step 1 scores (232) , and a lot of things on my end!

I decided to keep a journal here,to uplift myself . One day when i finish this journey, someone else would too.

I started Kaplan Cardio with lectures but left midway.
Will resume from today .
Once finished shall begin MTB2 annotation from Uworld topic wise assessment.

Yeah a 232 is not low at all!

You have to be careful with the internet, especially on forums dealing with USMLE exams. There is a HUGE reporting bias at play!!! There are some forums where you would think that 255 is an average step 1 score, but this just isn't true.

The reporting bias comes in that people with higher scores are more likely to post them. This makes others less likely to post lower scores and creates a vicious cycle where people start to get a distorted view of what is true.

According to REAL data, the average on step 1 is ~228. If you scored a 232, you scored higher than the majority of people who took the exam.

Dear , I have no issues to get praise here . And you have no right to call it **** , I am an IMG , and seeing my potential I felt it is lower, that's all(yes on "my" vision it is lower) . No use of such sorry when you obviously meant to offense me.

Thanks for understanding!
Since you have given , CK , Would you tell where to annotate Uworld,
I mean I have FA and MTB both. I am confused which resource we keep as single before examination(like FA for Step 1 ) . From what I have heard , it is MTB's that is annotated not FA.

It's normal reaction when you see a forum member that post such messages, i also saw many post like your, with 240 or 260 scores, and asking :
SHOULD I CONTINUE WITH USMLE OR NO SENSE ))))
Mean is 228, so it's clear that your score is realy good, and you can apply for many programs, but do not to make theatre here...

Yes 232 is really low, I am a US citizen and IMGs with 245 were denied residency during interview during the last session.

Your best bet is to become a PA or do a PHd.
