    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? Please...

    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...

    Aoa! Hi guys, 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...

    Friends, 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...
