Default Done woth ck today.....feeling horrible afterwards

Hello guys,Just did my ck today n I m wondering what to feel...I know its not uncommon but it really freaked me out....I was confident when I enterwd the Prometric thinking UWSA till now predicted accurately for everybody but when i cameout I was wondering will it be accurate for me....its just 3 hrs since i left my center n now I am getting haunted by my silly rather gross mistakes. ...I felt like making wise gueses( I consider though) to every 2nd or 3rd qs...It was really tough...just praying to get anywhere near UWSA

Like in step 1 after seeing qs I was confident answering them as either I read them either in uworld or fa but here I was stunned seeing them....I was confident answering 70% of them....abstracts n biostats together comprised 35 or more qs....most of them were however doable in biostats but abstracts made me cry....

You are feeling, my friend, what everybody feels after the exam.
The only things that I can tell you are
1) the exam is so long that I'm sure it will be a good and fair evaluation of your preparation. It will be close to your SAs, you'll see.
2) Try HARD not to think about it. It's not helpful at all, it won't change anything. Use your time in a smart way, either relax or keep yourself busy with something useful.

Your scores are good. I'm waiting for my score on wed and I?m trying really hard not to think about it

take care

I guess everybody feel insecure after taking this exam ..it is so long and i tend to remember only the questions that were difficult to me or the ones i will probable have wrong .
My UWSA was 254 ten days before and the NBME 4 was 246 ..two days before exam .
Lets hope we all do fine .
Can anybody tell me if this is normal ...at the ECFMG page ?
Thanks

Just in case someone has the same problem as me ..DONT PANIC ...i called the ECFMG and the problem was that since i took my test the second time i applied ...the info there is not yet updated .
So if you ran out of time to take the test and aplied again ...as I did ..dont worry ....and wait till your report comes in 3 or 4 weeks .
Best of luck to us ALL

My USWA exam score 1 day before the exam was 254, my exam experience was a disaster and I ended up scoring 245. I felt happy at the time but now I feel that I could have done better.
