Default May 21th, 2014 : Step 2 CK Exam Results Thread

Only 11 more days to go! I'm very nervous.

Took my exam the last of April and I thought it was...hmm doable but I've been remembering a lot of mistakes.

Good luck guys.

I'm waiting on weds for the results too-- I remember a lot of dumb mistakes I made and am looking forward for this waiting game to be over! How did you feel about the abstracts? Biostats is my worst subject and I'm worried it could really affect my score since I ended up guessing on all the abstracts. I thought focusing on the rest of the block made more sense, because I never understood those questions anyways, and now I've been freaking out about that decision lol

Default Tense wait here..

Hi guys.
Expecting the results tomorrow too.
I found the exam incredibly long and exhausting. When I left the center I had the feeling of having been hit by a truck. Remember a bunch of mistakes. Not confident AT ALL. So the sooner these results come back the better.
Question: are all people taking the exam on a given day supposed to get the same exact exam?

Good luck

Thanks amritar87.
I particularly feel I bumped into a very tricky version of step 2 ck. Hoping for a favorable scoring curve!

I took my exam yesterday and am going to agree the exam is doable but Ofcourse can't really make big claims without a score , question stems were almost the same or longer than uworld and I didn't get time to revise questions that I had marked on most blocks , did anyone of you experience the same thing ?

Yes uworld and MTB cover a lot of that asked in the exam but there were atleast 5-8 questions that I had absolutely no clue of , there were a lot of questions on Ob/gyn, behavioral , cardiology , renal and respiratory diseases . 2 abstracts , 1 drug add and some 5-6 biostats questions , other than a little bit of everything else

I'm actually waiting for my step 2 ck today, but for my step 1, I took it in Sept 30 last year, and got my notification Oct 23 at 9:21am EST according to my email. That's the only basis I have for estimating score release times unfortunately =(

Default Pass !

229.
Not an outstanding score but fair...and I didn't need more.
And now that it's over I can confess that I didn't take ANY of the preparation tests out there..I only studied hard First Aid..and just reviewed the example questions on the ECFMG website. I guess having practiced medicine for a long time helped me pass the test, it is so clear that this test is so clinically-oriented.
Well guys congrats to everyone. You guys killed it!!

well... I'm an IMG .I've been away from the forum for MONTHS. just had so much going on with lecturing during the day and some nights in the A&E. did my CK April 29th. was not even gonna kill myself waiting on that score. so forgot about it and went on with other stuff. Was shocked to check my email today and see that my score report was available. Then opened OASIS and it said i'd met all the requirements for ECFMG certification. What a RELIEF! Already knew I'd passed by then. so opened up the report and it said 251! WHOA!
So glad this is over
