Sorry Buddy , it's very very hard to get IM Residency
IM Residency needs Step 2 CK score at least 270 to 280 until 300

i think ppl with 220s and 230s should burn themselves in fire

Sure.I did only and only uworld.Did it 4 times.I made notes first time for each subject.(Notes from the explanation).I did just finished IM residency at home ,so that helps.But even otherwise I strongly feel that making uworld thourogh to the core will make you get this score.My medicine was strong since the first time I did uworld.But my psych,surgery and OBG was bad.So i read BRS for psych and stats,it helped me.

Just simply don`t do Uworld.Make it thorough every word,that will help.I prepared in 3 months(I am working,so did like max 3 hrs,5 days a week kind initially,then last month I took leaves and studied harder.)
The actual score is higher than my mock score.

I revised uworld and then took UWSA as a trial.i got 256 so was relieved.NBME 6 was 252.NBME 7 was very difficult for me(score was 244).

Anyway took the exam.

The most important thing is exam day,you need to run your brain till last question.So just relax the previous day of exam...dont read at all...this is very very important.
Have good breakfast and go for exam.

Breaks:I took 10 min after 2 blocks and 5 min each between last 2 blocks.Prob with breaks is you need to do security check each time u come out,that consumes time...

Relax during your exam.My first block was very tuff...i had no clue what i was doing.The next block onwards I got the momentum.

Hope this helps!!

All the best!!

UWorld isn't why you crushed the CK. Your residency is.
