Smile Cleared the CS with Stars!

I have cleared the cs exam on oct 10 took the exam on 7-13 was a very long wait. I have never had stars in anything in my life. this forum was a big help for me and my questions. I was very insecure about the exam my english is not great and all of this usmle stuff is very hard for me.

my study time was over a month and I used everything I had the money to buy I went over uw videos before it was for the new exam, did the old FA book and the new FA book, practiced a lot and the best part of my prep is csevideo because my cases were the same and the outline of the videos was just like the exam in the center.
My advice is don't be worried like me this will hold you from doing your best just practice it over and over and do the patient note a lot it is a new note for the new exam and to do it a lot will make the real exam easier.
There are alot of questions about cases and the notes my best advice is read FA and combine with csevideo for the details and follow dr reynolds exactly and you will be OK.

Please ask any questions

Good luck to those who are waiting

I felt similarly. After I took my exam all I could think about where the mistakes I made, and there were mistakes in every case. I thought I will either just fail or just pass. For 2 of my cases to this day I have no idea what they had but my differentials must have been correct because I passed with High marks in all 3 sections. The moment I saw my results were in though palpitations hit real hard.

Hope you did fine and try not to stress too much!! Just remember it is easy to remember what you did wrong and even easier to forget what you did right!
