Hi
I took my exam yesterday.. Should I expect the results on 21th or 28th.
And btw I really really have bad feelings towards the exam. Guys take my advice and study pelvic anatomy in DETALIS !!!!
If I'm not wrong I got about 8-9 questions out 13-15 questions in anatomy!! only in this silly topic and they were agnoring other parts of the body.

Well, I suck at ECG's. So I didn't even try to prepare for that. I guessed, and we'll see. Heart sound were ok for me. But I was prepared that: hearst sounds, CTs, MRIs, histology, ECGs and all other multimedia were out of reach for me, so I didn't freak out about that too much.
But otherwise, I wasn't even close to being sure on cardio questions.
Anyway, for me micro kind of stuck out. I have no idea how many questions there were, but I felt like I got a lot of them wrong.
All in all, I feel like a failure. I don't think I failed the exam, but I don't think the score will be what I'd like it to be.

Yeah same here it's not about failing the exam but I didn't really perform well as in my last nbme before the exam..
Micro was ok for me but cell biology and pelvic anatomy qs were the real issue

Anyway I hope you get good result...

Hypothetically will reading Uworld + FA and knowing everything in them be enough to answer enough questions to get 250+?
I mean when you when back after the exam and checked did you find all the answers in Uworld and FA?

Lol. When I was preparing for the test I was desperately looking for answer to this question. I learned like 70% of FA. (I didn't use other sources for the last like 3 months. I did all UW questions, but I didn't read most of the explanations, esp the questions I got right. I finished with cca 77/78% on UW, so there weren't that many explanations I actually read through. But doing questions was definitely essential part of my prep.
I don't know if it's enough for 250, I can let you know in 3 weeks. But I would say that for the most part, FA+UW combo is enough.

I like woke up today thinking well. I should go there again and do it for real. When I think about the exam I feel like it was 'just another practice test' and I didn't try hard enough. I don't know. I feel really depressed right now. But it doesn't matter. There is nothing I can do, so I'm just gonna wait.

Anyway, wish you the best of luck as well.

My exam is on Dec 3rd. I have 35% of uworld left which I hope to finish in 2 weeks max. I am also reading FA side by side.
I am trying to figure out what to read the last month. I will definitely do Uworld and FA. Pathoma maybe.
But Kaplan am not sure because there is so much I don't remember from those books. I am considering going through the questions after each chapter. Do you think that is a good idea?

I didn't check for answers. Either I knew the questions or I did not. I remember a few mistakes I did, but trying to think about all the mistakes I made would make me go crazy I guess. So I let it go.

What are your UW scores? I mean like - what are your averages for last 7-8 blocks?

So far its 74%
Ok, that's a good score. Don't go through kaplan. It's too huge for last month.
FA enough is fine. I wanted to do pathoma, but I felt like most of the info is in FA anyway. If you want my advice, FA alone or FA + UW edu objectives. Just that. Learn as much of it as you can and you'll be fine.
Revising one material many times is better than reading 20 materials once.

It's almost been a week since the exam and I am getting more and more freaked out. Thank God I have to do something during the day, otherwise I would probably go completely crazy. Anyway, how are you holding up? I'm trying really hard not to think about the test. Right now it's a total blur. I'm so scared. :(:(

And yes, pelvic anat was well...dreadful. TBH, I don't remember any cell bio qs. (Maybe I skipped something? :scared:)
