Hello everyone, I am done with step3 exam yesterday!!
I felt Day1 was okay, but after Day2 I felt I did Day1 much better than Day2. I think I made many mistakes in CCS and As I remember my MCqs from Day 2 It seems like I had all of them wrong!!
Coming to CCS, My cases were
1) Chronic Subdural hematoma - Pt. presented with dementia, I ordered Investigations Sent patient home and Once CT is out I consulted Neurosurgery, the case ended. Did pre-op evaluation in final orders, but didn't order Craniotomy(blunder)?
2) Pneumonia - Forgot ordering sputum investigations(blunder?)
3) CHF - Managed well
4) Urethritis - Managed well
5) Attempted Suicide- Major Depression - Managed well
6) Perforated Appendicitis - Placed consult, they said " Patient will be scheduled for the surgery, please continue with medical management" So are we really supposed to type laparotomy here?(blunder?) I did the whole pre-op evaluation.
7) DM-type 2: Managed well
8) Panic Attack: Managed well
9) Ankylosing Spondylitis: Managed Well
10) NonHodgkin's T-Cell Lymphoma: Oncology consult and case ended before I could type CHOP.(blunder?)
I don't remember the rest of the cases and I will let you guys know how much impact this will have on the result.

Second aspect: MCQs on the 2nd day, I feel like I marked them all wrong for god's sake. Does everybody feel the same? I scored 231 in UWSA 3 weeks before the exam, 440 in NBME 2 weeks before the exam and 76% in FRED software 1 week before the exam. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks :

Thank you for posting your experience. Don't worry you will be just fine, according to you self-assessment scores you should be done well! Once more, would you mind to stop on materials you used? All the best in coming ERAS Season!

Congratulations on being done with all the usmle exams, wish i was in your position.

I guess you will do fine, coz ur self assesment scores were good.

Just a doubt, were step 1 subjects like anatomy tested?

I also took exam last week. Felt day 2 was more difficult. Moreover I did silly mistakes, screwed 1 case, other cases went well. Though I got 233 in UWSA, I felt like I failed :toosad:
