Singapore Tomorrow is my CK Exam

Tomorrow's my Step 2 CK...
My NBME scores were awful so I'm not going to mention them here. I don't know what to do anymore.
I'm alone here in Singapore just wanting all this to be over because I have such a bad feeling about tomorrow. I know they say NBME is a good predictor of the total and basically what it's telling me is that I will fail.
I don't feel so blessed anymore.

Awwww thank you Abdi! (I'm a girl by the way :P)
I sat for the test today...I don't know how I did. The first few blocks were actually fine. In the middle of the 5th block, I had my first migraine after a 2 year migraine-free period!!! I was a little woozy through the rest of it but I have a good feeling about the first few blocks...
Oh well...to God be the glory and everything that happens is His will. I studied as best I could. Hopefully my best will be good enough.
Thank you so much for that one little reply...that meant a lot!

Thumbs Up Congrats on doing the exam

Congrats blessedJ85!
That was an important milestone.

Pray to God and hopefully you'll pass

Just wanted to ask you, were there 44 or 46 questions per each block!
Were there many multimedia questions?
Were there many biostatistics, epidemiology, and ethics questions?

Thank you

@Hohepa:

Thank you...please pray for me.

There were 8 blocks of 44 questions each, with each block lasting an hour. One multimedia question per block, and about 10 ethics and biostatistics Q altogether.
There's enough time to complete the blocks now and no rush at the end so that's a good thing.
Also on the survey at the end of the test, they ask about the test divided into 2 days. I don't know if that's a good idea but I was so exhausted at the end that I just wanted it to finish.

Wooow,
That's a good idea.
They should split it into two days just like Step 3 exam.
Hey, what did you answer them in the survey! did you tell them yes split it

Wishing you all the good luck

Let us know your results

By the way if you took the exam yesterday, your results will be out in July 22

Yep I said 'YES'!

Hmmm...I'm still worried though. I mean there's nothing I can do NOW right? I know they say that NBME is a good predictor of the final outcome. I can't get that out of my head. *sigh*

And LOL! Thanks for the heads-up on the results release date. If you don't see me ever again, KNOW that I died tragically from ischemic heart disease. Seriously...I didn't know what to expect. I wouldn't say the exam was tough though...coz some of it was pretty straightforward.

Oh well...all I can do is PRAY now that the answers I GUESSED were right! LOL.
