Default I am posting my score because I used this thread to calm my nerves during preperation

I started, my preparation in May. I was doing some work for obtaining my diploma, so i had to make multiple visits to my university(located at a far place from my med school). So my preparation was very slow in May. Somehow I got my diploma in may end. Started prep in june with more enthusiasm, but I am a lazy person and that enthusiasm weaned off in a week.
Then I decided to go back to my home to study. I studied in july sincerely with the plan to write exam in 2nd week of August.
I did UWSA on August 3rd and scored 232!!!

Then my friend told me to review Uworld again. I was numb for several days of my preparation. Then I decided to postpone my exam to add 6 more days.
because of non availability of date in my city I had to travel about 1500 Kms to reach my test center.

So I reached hotel a day before exam. I was totally numb. I was feeling like vomiting whole day. Then at night I slept well because two nights before my exam I could not sleep because I had so much anxiety.

Entered exam hall with confidence which did not last much.

First block questions were okay, but I missed 3. Then I took break did 4 blocks fine. 6th block missed question, I went out for few minutes crying. I regathered my self and started 7th block missed few more question. Then I was planning to leave the exam without doing 8th block. But I thought just mark the questions, for god sake. I had paid 1000$ to ECFMG.
\I came out of exam like I am going to fail.

But I got 246, I dont know. I think If i would have done this exam without loosing my cool in 6th block onwards I could have scored atleaset in 250s. But I am happy.

SO dont leave battle. Keep fighting you don't know what's next.
Even if you loose you will get an experience
If you pass, you will be the winner and the most happiest person for at least for a day.
