Wink My 2 cents worth (CK experience)

hi guys did my exam today just wanna say how it went

Overall it felt okay. I thought it was much harder than i expected it to be. i felt that a lot of the questions were not as clear cut as I had hoped, I could easily get it down to two options however sometimes difficult to do differentiate

The exam is bloody long. So be prepared mentally but this is difficult to do and don't think there is anything u can do to help, sure doing blocks of 44 does help however at the end of the day it is so long that it doesn't really help overall but prob helps focus on individual blocks. by the time I was on block 5 i was tired

IM mostly however obs was the most, not much psych and peds fair bit. felt obs to be way harder than I expected, it wasn't as clear cut

Good few extended matching questions

Drug abstracts doable, found some of the stats difficult however some were easy like calculation of sens/spec
the drug pamphlets were easy enough

I didnt feel like the questions match UW felt they were a level above this and didn't think the free 150 helped at all mainly just for confidence boost

Advice:

1) study the way u have always studied, don't be listening to other people. Its tiring when u see ppl posting should i do this and do that, at the end of the day u know what to do and fair enough u a seeking reassurance but u should be reassured because u haven't got where u are today without been wrong

2) ppl always say what do i need to know the answer is everything!!!! i don't think there is any shortcuts to the exam. u may not get time to do everything but at end of day u need to know everything anyway because its ur job as a doctor


anyway this are my scores so far
USW qbank : 81%
NMBE 4 236 (found this a bi silly didnt really help)
USW SA 253

peace out guys study hard, any qns ask

I am off to celebrate!

Congrats!

How long did it take for your score to come in?

I am hoping I pass but a 260 is just awesome.
