Default post-exam nerves

Hey all, was hoping for some insight from anyone who has taken the exam. I've been getting extremely worried these last 2 days. Like I had posted in my exam day post I didn't find the exam to be something out of this world---I thought it was fair, however I keep recalling questions I got wrong that were slip ups on my end. Is there any words of wisdom--have any of you felt this way because by the end of 3 weeks I'm going to go crazy!

I was comfortable going into the exam with 230+ on three practice exams--and would be beyond happy with that score so I'm not one that's aiming for a ridiculously high score. I just need a little peace of mind that what I'm feeling is normal! After step 1 I didn't feel like this--its weird.

anyways any advice or support at all would be much appreciated. thanks guys

I took the exam last week and I'm having similar feelings.... I found the exam fair, similar to UW, exhausting. Now I keep thinking about how many possible mistakes I could have done, in particular towards the end.... I was tired and I don't know what I've answered.
I think it's very normal. keep in mind that 8 blocks MUST be a fair average of your preparation! so the result will be close to you SA, or to your UW pecentages, it will be fair. There is no point in being worried now, because there is nothing that you can do. My advice is, and it is what I'm personally doing, try really hard not to think about it! keep yourself busy with other projects.

Good look! I'm sure you did well, btw

Smile Usmle ck

I did usmle ck 3 days ago. I felt horrible after the exam. My uwsa score was 221 five weeks before exam. Did not do any nbme. I did kaplan sim test (8 blocks) and i got the average of 72 percent ( do not have score correlation). I used uw, kaplan qbank and usmleconsult as primary source of study. I read secrets 4 times. Let us pray we all get good score
