Good luck buddy!!
What was your progression on the NBME s and UWSA??

Yeah you wouldn't get to see your step 1 report there anymore and I have no idea where can you see it but didn't you save the score report pdf file that you got at that time.

Nbme 6 - 256 (4 days out)
Uwsa - 250 (3 days out)
Free 150- 85%(2 days out)

But exam was way harder than any of these!!!

Awesome scores ! You should be 250+, you've two scores of 250+ in the assessments! I agree, actual exam wasn't even close to nbme or uswa, and it was so vague !

hey guys just curious.

did you guys have a lot of preventative medicine questions on your exam? I'm currently not doing too well on them. I've only done 17% on uworld.

any suggestions as to how to improve on the PM section? did you find Uworld enough for PM?

UWSA ( 5 days out) = 250
UW first time random timed mixed = 70%

the exam was harder than UWSA

Thanks bro! It would be just great if I could get that kind of score but I really doubt a 250+ score keeping in mind the vague nature of my exam. Those were my exact words I used after I took the exam 'The exam was tough and sooooo vague'. I think I would be happy getting anything above the average score. Fingers crossed.
How were your nbmes??

Exam was vague and hard. I gave mine on 20 feb 2014.questions were confusing and options were not one would expect to find.but of course there were straight forward questions.but overall I felt it very vague and confusing.i scored 245 plus in all my assesments.but exam was not like assesments.
Hopefully everyone gets what they worked for.Best wishes

Good luck everyone , wish you all the best for all of you as it seems that you all worked hard ,
I have 2 questions ,
after you got to the exam , what would you change in your study if you have to come back to study again ? what things will you do more or do it differently?
in step one everybody said that the exam was typically from uworld and that is what i found , what about step 2 , is it as in step 1 has the same concepts of uworld , or NBMES and to which one is it closer ?

It'd be great if those of you who get their results tomorrow could post their scores and also include a brief summary of what they used for preparation, their UW overall performance and self-assessments. Good luck everyone.

oh comeon...lets hope for a 250+ !! Atleast on the uwsa. My uwsa was 250 as well, a week before..but the exam was sooooooo..i don't have words haha! I don't know what usmle was upto when testing us !!

I think as for the permit, I don't think it has to do anything with the result It WILL go off when it expires usually..Mine's not showing up, but I believe my result will be next week which will be 3 weeks...definitely not coming tomorrow, since that'll be only 2 weeks...Haven't really heard of anyone getting it in 2 weeks

Lol...even I don't have a clue about what they were really testing...Could only tell better once I get my results tomorrow!!

And as for the scheduling permit in your case I believe the link might still be there but when you click on that it might be showing a message that reads something like you already sat for the exam or the link has expired...But when the result is about to come out the link disappears by itself!! Happens with everyone as far as I know...I might be wrong though!!!

Problem is people who score well in exam post their experiences because they get what their assesment score predicts.but frankly speaking for step 2 ck none of the assesment is accurate if you compare the exam.

So bad !
Hi Waleed !
You passed man, cheer up. You can always make it up with other stuff, research etc to boost up your credentials. Can't believe you've 233 with a UWSA score of 250! That scares me !! How were your NBMEs?

Thank you good boy and pp06060

My prep time was 4 months. got my step 1 results on oct 9. started prep from oct 10. gave exam on feb 10th. first3 months i was very lethargic.. only after i took nbme 3 on jan 3, i started studying for 8 to 9 hrs per day.

I did Kaplan LN once (all subjects). did IM and OBG alone twice.DID MTB 2 3 simultaneously. i didnt any watch videos except for EM and CARDIOLOGY.This took me 1 month. After this i started 1 st round of UW .. i was very slow.. did it for 2 months. took notes in mtb.

Took nbme 3 after revising mtb 2 and 3. got 237. activated a new subscription for 1 month. finished it in 22 days . took nbme 4 2 weeks before exam. got 254. started doing incorrects and marked .. and gave uwsa 1 week before exam. got 265. final week kept doing marked q and did mtb 2 3 once.

Thanks a lot and congrats again. Just two questions if you don't mind. May I know your step 1 score, or at least the zone (e.g., low 240s, high 250s...etc). The second question, do you think Kaplans were important? Or MTBs 2 and 3 are enough with UW? I am asking this because I spend many months studying reviewing books for step 1 then realized that studying books was not worth the time on it.

Thumbs Up

I have already mentioned my step 1 score in my previous post. its 248.
YOU can skip kaplan very well but make sure you read mtb multiple times to get hold of concepts. also doing UW TWICE or more is very important. try to do UW thoroughly. read every single word in it.

WAHTTTTTT . everyones Match application is different. quitting prematurely is absurd, after all you went through with studying and med school.
