Default Took Step 1 yesterday

Finally the big day has come and I finished the longest exam of my life
My exam had 40 questions in each block. There were only a few super long questions and rest were most similar to uworld questions. I found 3 blocks to be difficult(much harder than uworld) and 4 blocks super doable. Overall time flies when ur taking the exam so it doesnt feel like you are in there for 8 hours. Most of the questions are familiar if you have done any qbank but the choices are very tricky they all look correct but only one of them is the right answer Waiting 3 weeks for my grade is gonna be the hardest part of the exam process.

Best of luck on your score, and congrats on finishing!

Were there a lot of very clinical questions? Such as questions asking next best step in management, or diagnoses that were very difficult etc. Thanks
