hahaha so every week we'll start a new thread. anyway I'm just not stressed so far may be learnt my lesson from last wed. relax guys, do something else to distract urself, its no use just waiting & killing urself. Leave everything to God & pray. Its not even abt scores it would be just pass/fail. I know its hard to do but try it dont stress ur nerves. Lets hope for the best but be prepared for worse. We as IMGS still have more than 60% chance to pass. There's always a hope! Wish each & everyone of you success!

Embarrassed

Did your husband take the exam recently?
I already mentioned my mistakes in another thread. I guess the biggest concern was forgetting to put my gloves on in one case, other concerns are abt some patient notes, did not skip anything but didnt have enough time to write every possible detail About HPI..It cud be written better.

I hope to get my results tomorrow & pass this so called easy test which hasn't been very easy for me . I have missed soooo much for my CK studies, I guess not a good idea to take CS between CK but its too late to complain now.:sorry::sorry:

Thanks so much!

All I can say to everyone on here is that I didn't close completely on maybe 5-6 cases, and I got off the charts on CIS...

It's such a false rumor that this is required to do well on CIS.

Be polite and read the USMLE Step 2 CS guidelines that they give out... it says exactly what is required for CIS.

As for ICE, I barely passed... it's because I kept running out of time, because I totally wasn't ready to type on a keyboard from 1982. I'm already an average typer on my macbook!

Edit: I'm SOOO sorry for those who didn't get their score again. It's totally unfair... I think the NBME people are guilty of abusing their power. There is no way on earth people can't have their scores back by now. They don't consider for one second the mental anguish this puts us through, yet they give us a fricking exam which can literally ruin our life, which tests our ability to deal with patients mental anguish... Ironic? I think so.

Be polite and read the USMLE Step 2 CS guidelines that they give out... it says exactly what is required for CIS.

As for ICE, I barely passed... it's because I kept running out of time, because I totally wasn't ready to type on a keyboard from 1982. I'm already an average typer on my macbook!
I'm very happy for you.. No BS.. This is really reassuring!! I had exactly the same problems (Not closing completely in 3-4 cases and by being a slow typer not finishing some parts of the PE which was that last part of my note.. Also, forgot perform some specific tests here and there, but nothing too crucial for the differential in my opinion, although important for the DDx I had in mind..)

Default Finally it came

IMG
Took on 1st May
Unable to close 2 encounters
Not good at typing
USMLE increased the passing threshold recently
Didn't get results on last week

Finally....it came at 8:43 cst
Guess what...I passed with star in SEP, CIS, borderline ICE

MORAL: do what ever you supposed to do, on pt's best interest and as much as time's. Do lots of talking, EMPATHY and reasonable medical decision making.

Default Passed

I PASSED!!!! And ECFMG certified.

I did a lootttt of mistakes... Was very worried abt passing ICE but I did with borderline-high performance. Have high performance in SEP and CIS.

3 of my cases I had no idea what the diagnosis was. My DD was very bad. And few cases I did major blunders like not ordering an ECG in a boy who had palpitations!! Instead i ordered VMA!!!!

But anyway... I passed... and getting my certificate in a week or so!!!

congratulations to all those who passed. I didnt get mine,wanted to sleep but couldn't do it either. My CK studies are totally interrupted for a long time now since i started preparing for CS almost 5-6 weeks before the exam & now waiting for results.I really dont know what do, i feel I'm lost somewhere in time dimension. I really dont know when I'll be able to pass these tests with this mental state

Hey I can understand ur situation.It's been so tough on me too. was waiting from the begining of april..got it today finally! Don't worry God is testing ur strenght. Don't stop studying ..study with your study partner if you have one..so that will keep ur mind occupied. I know it's easier said than done..but if you cope up well with the pressure ..You are the winner!!

1st of all. I'm still surprised that I passed with high performance. Considering the fact that I made so many mistakes.
I think the key to pass is to stay cool and be ur natural self with the Sps and accepting the fact that YOU WILL do some mistakes irrespective of the fact u r so perfect in real life. It definitely takes more time to break ice with the patients in real life. So be ready to take angry patients, patients who don't show expressions or seem unconvinced by ur counselling. I don't think any of my Sps seemed to be totally convinced or smiled in the end.
I got a weird lot of patients. Unfortunately very few of them were from FA. But doing FA twice made all the difference. No peds case for me. One should be ready to face experimental cases. Do the normal History n go in order and do all the physical exam.
Some of the mistakes i did was :-
- forgot to pull out leg extension in one case.
- missed writing the work up in one patient note and was very slow in typing. My advice for you is to practice typing on a keyboard of a PC..cuz we are so used to writing here on our laptops so our speed here is very fast..I think that slowed my typing speed.
- missed some important points in counselling.I think the key for this is to practice counselling like many many times and never forget counselling for alcohol and smoke.
-take down appropriate notes..and ask the permission of patient to write them down . cuz once ur done..thrs a chance that u might forget imp points of history in ur note..cuz u are dealing with so many pts..it's important to write down stuff in short forms atleast. but don't go so deep in writing also that u make less eye contact..cuz looking at the patient is very important too.
- couldn't diagnose a very obvious diagnosis instead wrote the least common thing. But i think writing atleast one probable diagnosis if not the most obvious one could save you too.
TIPS-
Never panic. Always smile. Say sorry for whatever possible reason u get. Talk a lot. Pratice typing patient note many many times.
Accent or centre or kind of patients are never a problem.
This is all i could remember..since i had taken the exam long back
Good luck guys..CS is not a great acheivement but it's better to get it out of the way ..else it's sometimes a problem

Hey guys,
I took my CS on 8th May at LA.
I thought it went ofpretty well-did the usual ritual for every patient.
Was polite and said thanks aftre almost each manouevre.
Did relevant physicals, including ophthalmoscopy ,DTR's when required.
Did closure in all of them.
Patient notes were also fairly good, after what I've read at other posts. Got 3 diagnosis in almost all-only in some, wasn't able to support with positive findings.
Was expecting a high pass.
Got a fail on ICE, and high pass on others!!
Any views guys-what must one do, or not do??
Should I ask for re-totalling?

Sorry to hear that. It happens . I heard from some really good seniors of mine who were really high scoring but were unfortunate in CS . They told..u never know the reason why u passed..and u never know the reason why you failed. U're telling that you did everything right. But look at the components of ICE and on what basis it is scored.If you feel really this is some mistake ..go for a re-check .It's a matter of 80$ or something..if it's gonna give u some mental peace then go for it.

I took my exam at philli on may 6th. Haven't received my result till now. And after reading at some of the threads that of your result is a little delayed thn expected date it's likely that it's not good. Is that true???
My exam went alright. Can say much. I was very precise with pt notes. Missed closure in one case. Forgot to bring the leg rest out in 2 cases and forgot the exact duration of s/s in two cases. The pt had to correct me. Pt noted I finished in time. But again I was very precise in them. I don't know what to expect. I am Scared now

Please dont just believe what other people are telling you. Check it out urself a lot of people passed last wednesday & today. Some failed even on first wed & some today. If what you are telling was true everyone after today will be a fail!! come on now why would ECFMG delay to fail us really?? Do they want to hurt us with a little delay just keep praying & dont pay attention to false rumors people will keep passing & failing the test regardless of the time the result is announced. Wish you all the best, hope we'll pass next week.

Hepevirus I totally agree with you. I got my result today and I even said it in one of my post that the rumors are false about ppl failing after the first Wednesday. Last week I also mentioned that have faith in God and yourself. Have confidence in what you did. Sure it's easy to remember your mistakes but also remember the things you did and that will be far more then your mistakes. If your mistakes are more then yes your have something to worry about. Honestly that's exactly what I did last week when I read these rumors. Thought practically and said to myself there will always be far more ppl to post that they passed compared to those that failed so the ratio is off right there, so yes initially it's natural to think that ecfmg only mailed out passing results. But this is where even god is testing your confidence in yourself. Also ppl think about this that the test is given everyday about 24 drs in the am group and 12drs in the afternoon group that 36 in one day at one center times that by 5 centers about 5 days a week in a 2month period that's about +/- 10,000 drs. Surely we can't expect everyone to get their results on the first day. It's unfortunate that there is no order and drs get their results randomly regardless of when they have taken it. Doctors I feel for you that you haven't got your results but please stay positive. We will see the finishing line.

Got my results and it's a PASS ...I'm glad the wait is over with !

Did about 2 weeks of prep mainly using FA and partner practice, didn't watch any videos/online courses etc.

Exam was quite stressing overall. Did not complete closure/PN in a couple, did incomplete Neuro PE's due to lack of time. Went throught the usual maneuvers like washing hands in all of them. Did not do any fundoscopies, MMSE etc. Was very unsure of the result when done...

Got close to high performance in ICE, SEP(I'm an IMG btw) almost overlapped with borderline in CIS.

I think it's crucial to keep your composure in those tough encounters.

Good luck to you guys still waiting for the results!
