Default Can't take it anymore

Hi

I took my exam 22 april (step 1), I opened it here cause I want to here from people who have already passed it, anyway, post exam I felt like ****. I would mark 15+ q a block and had questions I didn't have slightest idea wtf they were talking about.

my SA scores were:

NBME 16 - 236 about 3 weeks out
NBME 13 + UW SA 243 & 247 about 1.5 weeks out
NBME 7 234 or something about 1 week out

some people told me that my anxiety is normal and everyone feels like that and than they get great score, but honestly I reaaallly think I ****ed everything up. on the other side I remember some tuff questions that I answered correctly but than again overall I think I won't even hit the 220.

am I overreacting or what? anyone out there had felt the same way?

I do think that your experience is common. When I did my Step 1 I walked out thinking that I didn't do well (I had a good number of flags in each section, particularly about 3 blocks, I didn't have the slightest clue about some questions and I opened up my FA afterwards to realize I answered some wrongly). Your self assessment scores were consistently good so it looks like you were well prepared. I know it can be difficult with the anxiety but I'd just try to spend some time relaxing now. You deserve the relaxation! Hoping for the best for you. BTW my score was 234, which was exactly the same as my UWORLD SA 2. I know others have had different experiences, but that's how it went for me.

It is a normal feeling, you had good NBME 7 before the test you are going to get more than 230 for sure.
