Question Exam next week

Hi guys,
I have a question for you.
I will take my step 3 exam next week (21st and 22nd).
I have studied with FA Step 3 book and UW Qbank and CCS...
CCS cases: read all 52 cases from UW and did a lot of notes...Also read all 100 cases from FA book...
Time to prep: 45 days.
My scores:
UW: 67% correct answers
UWSA: 63% correct answers, score 590, predicted 237

What do you think? I am well prepared to take the test? Should I postpone the exam?

Good luck to all of us!

I think your UWSA score and general percentages are quite good for you getting 95+ on the exam.... if it was me i would go ahead and give exam confidently.

Default My experience

Hi guys,
Sorry for my late reply...
I want to share my experience and also I would like to know your opinion about my chances if passing (many CCS mistakes)...

First day: very very long question. I was running out of time in all blocks. However, I guess that I did a similar score when compared to my UW practice. The questions are not so difficult (difficulty level was pretty similar than UW)

Second day: the four block questions were very very straightforward and very very easy!!! I guess that I did well.
CCS: first of all, the cases were all easy and straightforward. You can see all these cases in FA book or UW! However, I did a lo of mistakes (I just lost my concentration) and I afraid I will fail!!
I completely bombed two cases!! I did good in four cases (of course I should had lost some little things) and I did low average in three of them!
So guys, what do you think? I am really scared. Do you think that my performance in the CCS cases can make me fail? If we did really poorly in this section we would fail despite a good MCQ performance?
So, that is it.
See you soon
Best wishes to all of us

About my three low average cases: all patients improved or were cured, however many orders were delayed and some unnecessary!
That is it
