never did this before but as part of gratitude towards this forum and many more previous applicants whose experiences were useful during my USMLE journey, I am trying this adventure of writing my step 3 experience:o
OKAY - my prep time was 3 months but actual study begun in last 2...

I am dead worried about my exam, It has been 2 days since I took the exam and I cannot sleep, eat.
The first day was horrible- Did not have time for last 3 to 4 questions in each block, just picked an answer and went with it. Finished all the blocks but at the end of it, just...
Hi everyone. I have used this site as a guide per se for all my steps, Mostly to fine tune my studying and I have to say it has been wonderful. Thanks everyone who contributes to this and i wish pple would contribute alittle more to step 3.
anyways I got an amazing score on step3 (for some odd...
I passed my exam. Use this forum and usmle forum when ever i get time , so I am positing my experience as well. Took exam last month got my scores yesterday, doing psych residency was afraid if I fail i will lose my spot but thank God i passed it .
My experience :
I just got my Step 3 result today. Passed it on my first take with a score of 212.
I dont know what to think about this. My previous steps were decent and much better than this. I honestly was not expecting a score lower than 220. Will my step 3 score destroy my chances of matching?
Done with step 3..ques were all very small n 2 to 3 lines unlike grangutan ques we have all experienced.. n all bout basic topics...ccs..practised it frugally...but in the exam..all straight forward cases and all pt got better..its easy..n not such a big deal after u practice once or twice on...

day 2 questions were even tougher n i dnt feel good about it..
ccs was a lot better ... i ended most of my cases within 6 to 8 mins..
overall its the first time im not having good...
Being an IMG, giving Step 3 prior to the Residency application was high up on my agenda. Step 3 is a “tough nut” especially considering the fact that you can’t sit down to study for it, without doing any clinical attachment/research/residency with it simultaneously. But as every exam, it can be...
I was wondering it will be a very long time for people giving their exam in this exam window for their result. I gave my exam today, and I very tense because two of my cases finished in 6 minutes whereas their allotted time was 20. I was just wondering how much does the score get...
Hi guys !
I got over with my step 3 a couple of days back and have been really worried about it since then. I think I messed up my ccs cases cuz MOST of em automatically end in like 5 mins flat. Now I'm not even sure if the pt was beginning to do well. It just ended. N with most of them I felt...
I gave step 3 few days back. Multiple choice questions were ok but i messed up 1 ccs case. The patient didn't improve till the end. In another case, the patient improved partially. Rest of the cases went well. Did anyone have a similar experience? I am worried about my score. Can...

I got my step 3 score today. Its 216/82. Not so great but I did not expect much from me for the first time. I felt the exam tougher than rest all steps. I gave after reading MTB once and solving UW once with CCS cases that I barely finished day before the exam. No Excuses to be made...
