Default How long it takes to wait for the scores?

Hi everyone! I took my Step 3 a week ago with one day in between the sessions. I prepared from UWQB, I did it once and subscribed once again and did only 50% of the questions and CCS twice, UW biostat once, MTB boards once and I have read through some Ethics book questions and answers. On the first day I had two blocks that were tougher then the rest, I dont even want to think of that. I also had at least two biostat per block, and interestingly very few ethics questions overall. I had no audio. The quality of the EKGs honestly sucked. I finished all the questions on time with no time to go back and change the answers, so even if you mark them, you still have to choose an answer. The second day I think it was more relaxing only because I had more time for the questions. The CCS part was frustrating, all the 10 min cases ended at 10 min but only one of the 20 min casese ended at 20, so I am very worried. I dont know what to expect, but I hope for the best. It's just very hard for me to cope with this stress probably because I did not have a good UW Self Assessment score which was 198

Passed Step 3 with 201. Biostat was the most terrible. I had at least 3 questions per block. I actually thought the questions were not that hard, but it turned out they were, based on my report. Also with cardio, i had lower performance. At least I am done with it.

Surprisingly I had high performance for the CCS part. As I mentioned, my 20 min cases ended at around 10 min-14 min of management. CCS cases from uworld are very good for practicing and the exam cases were not very difficult. I had commonly encountered diagnoses. One was almost similar to uworld case. I think it's important to know when to do the physical first or when to do the ABCD first. And try not to do invasive techniques. The diagnosis is pretty straight forward. You don't loose time thinking what it might be. But you need to have patience when the patient is in the ICU and you give treatment. You need to advance the clock but don't advance it too often, you'd better order interval history. I was worried more about CCS and less worried about multiple choice session. I focused on both but biostat just knocked me down.

Default USMLE step 3 results trick

I have heard ppl write that if you log into your fsmb the week that you are anticipating your results, you may or maynot see a link to apply for a new application. My extensions says expired , and I have a link to apply, does anyone else have this link? I clicked on mine and I can go all the way through to the payment page, so I am guessing I failed. If anyone else has anything like this please tell me ... I am praying for a miracle.
