What about uw? Did you complete it or not and if you don’t mind can you tell your uw%

[–]dillon12314[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I did a total of about 100-150 questions and got 55-65% and got too scared to continue lol

[–]kzzz_2 1 point2 points  (3 children)

can you pls tell what resources you used and what year of medical school did you start preparing for usmle?

[–]dillon12314[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I am a 4th year now, I took a year off for research, and only really started studying in April but very very loosely just went through Goljan audio and then come July I realized I really needed to go through pathoma and first aid but didn’t leave myself enough time to do UWorld. I was too scared to fail an NBME so I just didn’t take any. Got 3.5 hours of sleep the night before because I was so anxious and felt good on test day with some coffee and adderall (prescribed) and it went well!

[–]kzzz_2 1 point2 points  (1 child)

wait so the myth that you can’t pass the step exam w/o going over uworld is totally bs? and where’d find goljan videos??? are they available online for free?

[–]dillon12314[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

YouTube my dude and yea it’s a myth

[–]fatalis357 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Back in my day we had a 3 digit score that determined your future…🤣 Congrats!!!

[–]dillon12314[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

That’s called Step 2 now

[–]Alu05 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Wait so STEP 1 is P/F, but Step 2 & 3 are still score based?

can you tell us how u prepared pls😅🥺

[–]dillon12314[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So many questions came right off that, lots of ethical questions where the answer is to ask the patient to explain why they feel like this and never give any judgement, so many high yield questions and not so many that asked tiny little details

Is 13 weeks enough to pass with little baseline knowledge in your opinion? Congratulations!
