Default Passed Step 2 CS

Hello everyone,
By allah's grace I passed step 2 CS in first attempt with high performance in all 3 components. I am an IMG took my exam in chicago and took 1 month to prepare. I will advice you guys to not take it lightly and their are lots of people out there saying that it doable in few days, believe if you are an img its not that easy and requires atleast 4 week of study time. Find a partner, do lots of practise, plan your trip well. ICE component is the most important one and most people fail in it (both my study partners failed in ICE), dont worry about SEP & CIS.
Good luck and dm me if you need any help.

They told me that it was hard for them to find the differential diagnosis, also their patient note was not to the mark. Even I had a similar feeling after the exam as the SP presented with only one symptom in many cases and rest of the history/PE was benign. Please make a note that unlike FA where they gave multiple findings/symptoms, in real exam you may encounter very few, making it hard to get the differential diagnosis and their supporting evidence.
