Question Does everyone feel like crap after CK?

Okay,

So I did my exam yesterday. It was nerve-wrecking, and was damn tough! Like literally, tears you apart. I feel like crap now, and this misery will last for 3 painful weeks. Mannnnnn
! I'll post my full experience once after my result is out, and can better gauge my performance.

Anyway, is it normal to feel like this that you completely ruined it and failed it after coming out?

I was doing kinda okay in assessments. Step1 250, UWSA 263, FRED 89%, UW cumulative around 77%, offline NBME4 92%. Didnt take an NBME online, the mistake I made!!!!

Can only pray now!!!

I sure did Smashingdude felt exactly like it. I went in feeling very well prepared. I went out feeling defeated. But feeling is not an accurate prediction of how you score.

Your overall performance seems to be very good. I think you should be fine. Mine turned out quite okay albeit not as good as I wanted but definitely not as bad as i thought it would.
