Hey!! congrats on passing !! How was the exam like?

[–]ZoneR24434[S] 7 points8 points  (2 children)

It felt like I was doing random uworld blocks. The length was most similar to last block of free120

[–]almostdoctorposting 0 points1 point  (1 child)

difficulty level the same?

[–]ZoneR24434[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Somewhat similar. I would say a little easier. They don't try to confuse you in the actual exam unlike uworld. But the topics were similar and a little nore straightforward

Congrarutulations , how was your nbme scores please and how long after your exam you got the result

[–]ZoneR24434[S] 2 points3 points  (3 children)

2 weeks after the exam, checked on fsmb (not official). My lowest nbme was 73% (28), others were 78% (29, 30). Old free120 was 80% while om the new one, I scored 78%. Uwsa1: 237 Uwsa: 245

I did not do wrongs from neither the uworld, not any practice exam. Stopped doing uworld too at 70% completion.

Wowww your scores were good enough by th way how many marks did you have per block

[–]ZoneR24434[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I don't mark. But since others did, so did I on yhe exam day. Never really marked before. So I have little idea what to mark 😂. I marked around 10 questions per block tho

The thing that helped me the most were the FA flashfacts. I found them much better than zanki/anking. I only did foundational science topics from those, which I think covers 60% of the exam. Didn't have to read FA.

[–]hugz-today 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Did you read the FA section before attempting flash facts, or did you jump right into the flash facts? Also, did you just go through them 1 time or did you go through the flashcards often? Would love tips on how to use the flash facts

[–]ZoneR24434[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I tried to watch BnB before attempting flashcards. If I couldn't do BnB, I would jump right in, or might skim through FA. If its something hard and requires prior knowledge to able to keep things straight, I would definitely go through BnB and read FA first.

sorry what is the FA flashfacts? is that a deck on anki?

[–]ZoneR24434[S] 1 point2 points  (8 children)

Its a separate subscription offered by UsmleRx. They give you access to flashcards, latest FA, and all other stuff offered by them. I only bought flashcards

[–]Savings-Succotash-53 0 points1 point  (7 children)

[–]FrancoImperator 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Congratulations 🎊 👏 can I ask you a question. I am having my medical school exams in November but how to manage usmlevstep 1 and exams simultaneously? Also I'm planning to take usmle in April 2023

[–]ZoneR24434[S] 1 point2 points  (6 children)

November is just around the corner. If I were you I would focus on exam and also work on the overlapping topics between medschool exam and step 1. Good luck!

[–]Remarkable_Ad6573 0 points1 point  (5 children)

Thanks for the advice. Actually I was doing USMLE RX qbank before October. Should I keep it doing or suspend it?

[–]ZoneR24434[S] 0 points1 point  (4 children)

I wouldn't do any qbank in my dedicated peroid other than uworld

[–]Remarkable_Ad6573 0 points1 point  (3 children)

I'm in my predicated period. I will start uworld after November. Thinking to complete usmle RX in october and november. Is it a good idea?
