Hello everyone. I am retaking my step and would really like to do well.
I'm 85% through with UW Question Bank and I'm at 56%. Last couple of tests have been in the high 60%s
I took UWSA 2 and got a 201 two days ago. I made some silly mistakes
Initially I was supposed to take the test on Dec 29, eligibility runs out Dec 31, but I just paid to extend online, so I can reschedule it for 2-3wks.
I'll be taking NBME 5 later today to see where I stand. I figure if I am around the 200 mark, extending to take it in 2-3wks, can enable me to at least try to get my NBME score to about 215 or so, to feel comfortable on the real thing. In 2wks I'll take NBME 7.
The last time I took the exam, I had too much on my plate and didn't want to extend, even though I was border line and ended up failing by 3pts!! In that case, I felt I needed another 2-3wks but resisted.

I plan on finishing up UW and redoing it a 2nd time as well as going over First aid again.

Thanks. Looks like extension was best thing for me.

I just did the USMLE fred questions (I know they are easy)
average score 74.7%
Block 1: 72%
Block 3: 67%
Block 4: 85%
Audio/Video: 80% (4/5)

I feel good about passing (if I took it now, I believe I'd pass) but its more than passing for me, this time its doing well
