Default Step 2 CK - waiting the results and scared . Read this !!!!

Hi everyone, I want to share my experience with you, because this forum really gave me a peace of mind while I was waiting the results of my test and hopefully others will do it after read this..

Iím an IMG and I took my test on December 3th, 2015. I felt devastated when I finished my test. I left more than 12 questions without mark at all, and about 8 more than I couldnít read properly before answer it. Yes I know ....a real disaster, the worst performance ever in a test. The questions are really long, complex and really different for what I saw in the Uworld Qbank (I did it twice) , UWSA and NBME (7, 4 and 6)

Results--Uworld 1st time (72 %) Untimed, Tutor mode, - Like I said, I used it for learn
2nd time (89%) Timed and Random

NBME 7- 221 (Itís true what the forums says, Its underpredict your score for 20)
(21 days before exam). No missed questions

UWSA - 247 and 9 missed questions ( 4 without mark and 4 marked without read properly)
(15 days before exam)

NBME 4 - 248 and NBME 6 252 (Both same day, like the real exam)
(1 week before exam). No missed questions

Results---Step 2 CK - 248

Conclusions: ( My humble opinion)

1- Most predictive test ( for me) UWSA, I missed 8 questions in the UWSA and about 20 in the test . Even when I got the same score in the test than in the NBME 4, I was able to answer all the questions in the NBME 4 on time, pretty different of what happened in my real test.

2- After the exam, when you are thinking that everything is lost, you should trust in your preparation and the UWSA, NBME 4 results...they are really predictive.

Thanks to those who helped me (posting in the forum) and for those that are preparing or about to take the exam....GOOD LUCK!!!!!, I hope this help you a little bit...

Hi, thanks for sharing your experience. Did you give all the NBMEs online and would you mind sharing how many mistakes you made in each? Thanks.
