Warning! Serious help needed!!

I am an IMG, my step 1 exam is in 65 days!! So far i have covered micro, anatomy, behavioral science, immunology and biochemistry in FA and U world questions. I still have the 3 P's (Pathology, Pharma and Physiology) to cover. I am literally freaking out, i am looking for any advice you guys can give me. I am planning to do Pathoma for pathology, FA and then u world questions. Are there any Uworld notes available? I seriously regret not taking notes and wasting all my time and now i do not even have the time to take notes now. Help would be really appreciated!! Thank you guys..

Is it possible to do this in 65 days with all the revisions and self assessments?

Default No Plan

Handsome you need a plan and some logic .
You dont have both . You have panic and poor prep .

You need to do FA 2-3 times , you need to do Uworld 2-3 times .
If not - you not ready . Once a week you need to do rapid review at end of FA .
If you don't know rapid review - you not going to pass.

Use your logic . work out how much time is needed and decide when you should be giving the exam .

NBME gives you a good idea of being ready for exam. You need 220 as minimum at least once from NBME exams .

2 blocks will be hard . The rest will be fine- if you know FA . The hard ones can come as the first 2 blocks . Hard ones means you'll have near 20 wrong in each block . Sometimes more . Its different for each candidate. You may also not get them.

Sit back. Drop the drama from your tone and talk.Focus on plans . Stick to your plans.

Good luck.
