Low NBME score

Have you done the Uworld question bank ?
You need that plus FA .
Biochem - use the FA Thats enough.You need to know how the cycles works and the pathways.The major steps in all .
Which country you in .
If you don't describe your circumstances - hard to help you.

Eg of what is meant by '' my circumstances''

I'm a 31 yr old dr qualified in russia and currently doing hosp posts in Moscow . I have done FA - twice but no Qbank and so on.

pleasee give thumb nail again
It stopped working.

You not far off . Are you working while stuyding?

You need to do this full time and then try to get your NBME.

Dont pay money for exam till NBME is sorted out.

Once NBME is sorted out then pay and ask for 3 month exam period .

Hello Phillipines

No need to do U world assess . The NBME is enough. No added advantage doing uworld assessments . Only un-needed delays.

FA plus Uworld Q bank . That is the main portion . Know FA well .
Well means 2-3 reads . Now do NBME till you get a min of 220 . You ready to write . After each NBME go back to FA read again till you get 220 in NBME . What you can't follow in FA use your reference books .

Once you decide to write you need to be with books full time till you write.You cannot work and do this. Thats not possible.

Let me know what you think then we go forward. If you don't have an opinion difficult to help you.

Never give up has got some issues that is hard to work out . he does not want to say what his circumstances are .

Well I'm working full time. I did a masters and after finishing I had to get on an f1 opt visa meaning I have to work full time. I only have evenings and weekends to study. I have done uworld twice and first aid 3 times but very spaced out, in between my masters classes and working full time. I can't stop working cos of my visa status. I feel my foundation was shaky and wanted to do Dr Najeeb's videos as I go throgh first aid so I can be more grounded. People keep saying read only first aid and u world but first aid is just a review book and you can only review what you know. So that's my story.

Let me start by saying that you've been given some terrible advice, and you need to immediately stop right now and listen to every single word I'm about say.

Use this study plan:

This will of course take HARD work. You can do it, though.
