Tomorrow's my Step 2 CK...
My NBME scores were awful so I'm not going to mention them here. I don't know what to do anymore.
I'm alone here in Singapore just wanting all this to be over because I have such a bad feeling about tomorrow. I know they say NBME is a good predictor of the total and basically what it's telling me is that I will fail.
I don't feel so blessed anymore.:toosad:

Awwww thank you Abdi! (I'm a girl by the way :p)
I sat for the test today...I don't know how I did. The first few blocks were actually fine. In the middle of the 5th block, I had my first migraine after a 2 year migraine-free period!!! I was a little woozy through the rest of it but I have a good feeling about the first few blocks...
Oh well...to God be the glory and everything that happens is His will. I studied as best I could. Hopefully my best will be good enough.
Thank you so much for that one little reply...that meant a lot! :)

Congrats on doing the exam

Congrats blessedJ85!
That was an important milestone.

Pray to God and hopefully you'll pass ;)

Just wanted to ask you, were there 44 or 46 questions per each block!
Were there many multimedia questions?
Were there many biostatistics, epidemiology, and ethics questions?

Thank you

@Hohepa:

Thank you...please pray for me.

There were 8 blocks of 44 questions each, with each block lasting an hour. One multimedia question per block, and about 10 ethics and biostatistics Q altogether.
There's enough time to complete the blocks now and no rush at the end so that's a good thing.
Also on the survey at the end of the test, they ask about the test divided into 2 days. I don't know if that's a good idea but I was so exhausted at the end that I just wanted it to finish.

Wooow,
That's a good idea.
They should split it into two days just like Step 3 exam.
Hey, what did you answer them in the survey! did you tell them yes split it :rolleyes:

Wishing you all the good luck

Let us know your results

By the way if you took the exam yesterday, your results will be out in July 22 :p

Yep I said 'YES'!

Hmmm...I'm still worried though. I mean there's nothing I can do NOW right? I know they say that NBME is a good predictor of the final outcome. I can't get that out of my head. *sigh*

And LOL! Thanks for the heads-up on the results release date. If you don't see me ever again, KNOW that I died tragically from ischemic heart disease. Seriously...I didn't know what to expect. I wouldn't say the exam was tough though...coz some of it was pretty straightforward.

Oh well...all I can do is PRAY now that the answers I GUESSED were right! LOL.
