Default october 7 exam experience

hello fellow doctors. finally gave my exam today.

i was really afraid of giving my exam after reading all the experiences of scholars..

but as my extended period was getting over, i had too.

exam- it was very much like uworld . 2 xray and derma pict from uw copy paste.

some questions to were copy paste from uworld.

had some really really easy questions, even some really really hard ones.

some weird and long paragraph tyoe questions. one combined questions of 3 related to a reseach of 2 one page.

made some really easy mistakes.

over all at the i was fresh even after sleeping for 3hrs. unlike ste 1 wen i knew i was screwed after my exam.

need suggestions , i heard if ur questions is easy then chances are u score low in comparison.

sounds a bit different from the recent takers, however, in a good way
How was your nbme/free 150/uwsa self assessment?
was it helpful/reflective?
thank you!

Hello, i had a similar exam experience, i sat for the exam and was expecting something horrible, but got u world similar questions. Then, i freaked with the curve being extra strict, but IT WASN'T! I got similar to my UWSA and NBME and was surprised in a good way. Just, sit back and enjoy being free

All the best!

Hey , placebo !

Can you please do some correlations for us:

How much was your UW average pass %
UW, NBME self-assessments
Have you tried those NBME clinical series - I have no idea from where they're came from - I have heard only twice about them.

Thanks much,
