I just took my test too, although I'm not feeling too graet about it. I feel sick to my stomach I'm just praying for the best at this point

My final block had 36 questions, everything else was 40

NBME - 12 Nov 5 - 430(213)
NBME - 18 Dec 30 - 640(257)
NBME - 17 Jan 17 - 560(240)

Did Uworld 2 times and FA.

Questions were similar to NBME but answers were tricky. I didn't feel very bad while taking the exam so I would say not too tough.

You got pretty good scores in 2nd NBME as compared to 1st. What exactly did you do?

Thank you, I wish you the best too. I agree, I have about 2 more weeks until my score is released, maybe 3 weeks left.. not sure. You're right about the anxiety. So much anxiety awaiting my results.

if u do NBME, you read options and figure out one exact answer..i found thst difficult in the exam..where i kind of thought 2 options are similar...may be bcoz of the exam environment
