Unhappy Failed Step 2 CK

hey you guys!
i received my step 2 ck result on 20 feb and failed the exam by one mark.
exam day- had time management problems and totally freaked out after the first block because i missed the last 5 questions.
even though i knew i was underprepared i gave the exam because i did not want to waste the fees.
now i am just depressed and joined this forum for support.
i felt the exam was nowhere close to uworld.
so basically i need to score really highly now in order to prove myself.
its just SO depressing.
if anyone could guide me to some links of people who failed step2 and then scored really high in the 90s on their 2nd attempt i would really appreciate it.
thank you in advance.

infact at this point ANY KIND OF INPUT would mean alot to me.
im just so depressed.

Don't worry. Things happen and you should just make sure you know where you went wrong. Don't give up. If you need more time to grieve then take the time.
CK is harder than before. I felt the same way after the exam. So don't give up. Try again and make sure you are ready this time.

Having faith in yourself is very important. Do not blame yourself and read the success stories on this forum. They are very helpful in deciding the most effective ways of preparing for this exam. Its an extremely tough exam. But Believe in yourself. If you do, you can score as high as anyone ever has.

What was your step 1 score? Dont worry.....I may be wrong but perhaps you might find the kaplan videos for CK somewhat useful, but it takes 8 weeks to complete.

Take a week or two off, then start with Kaplan lectures notes and start with UW. If you can, do DIT 2 and do all the pages. You should increase about 15 points.

You will make it and will get in!

And all this time people have been saying that Step 2 CK is easier than Step 1. What a typical statement from a medical student who talks BS.
