Smile Tima Took the CK Yesterday

Hey guys,

So, I just took the exam yesterday. I have no idea how it went. I'm just so nervous and scared now, and hoping I didn't fail the thing. There were some of the questions that I knew, some that I didn't know and some (drug ads) that I guessed on. For most of the blocks, I didn't have time to go back and check my marked questions and this also makes me worry even more

I took all 4 NBME's and my average was 240. UWSA was also in the same range.

Question stems were not very long. They were pretty much the same length as the UWorld and NBME questions.

Of the people who have also taken the exam have the same feeling? And how did you end up doing?

Thank you.

I took exam today..
I didn't feel like it is really tough.
People claiming that questions are too long are just scaring the people around.
There were too many 3-4 line questions there.
Everything was from MTB and UW.
3-4 blocks were tough, had to mark 5-6 questions.
There were like 10 questions about which I didn't have any idea.
Exam was doable.
I had NBME-4 230, UWSA-245
Lets see how much I get in real deal...

Do you guys have any idea, when people taking exam on Friday get their result?? 3rd or 4th Wednesday????

The step 2 ck booklet on the usmle website gives an good idea what is very heavily tested i feel. Just read it a few hours ago and it was quite detailed in areas like blood, neuro etc.

The only thing i wish i knew more about is the drug ad sections. I dont understand what they mean that they will lower the questions per block to 42 when a drug ad question pops up. I also dont understand the warning and such. very confusing. Just began studying for the CK just 1 week ago.

Does USMLE world cover drug ad questions, because i know kaplan qbank doesnt really at all.
