So hang in there and keep going.
Congrats. I did my exam week ago and I feel that I did really bad. I remember I did at least 5 easy mistakes. And on abstracts I just guessed I couldn't even understand what they want! What I think? U felt similar??

@mmpetrov - I felt exactly the same. Don't worry that's the common experience. There are more than 370 questions so don't worry about the few silly mistakes you might have made.

@eren - Thanks mate. Just left with CS and I don't even need to ace it. Just want to end up above that passing line! Good luck to you too.

@aspiringdoc - Thanks! Well try to practice the drug ads. I don't really know from where or what could I have done but try to figure that out. Do the free 150 early as the drug ads in those represent the real thing better. Good luck!

Advice anyone? Please?
Thanks

PS - Exam end of April.
