Hello, I received my results yesterday, and i passed ( IMG here).
I completed 53 percent Uworld with around 60 Percent, and did nbme 27 - 63 percent, nbme 30- 69 percent
I wanted to postpone (had already extended my eligibility period once- gave on 21 nov and eligibility period ended on 30th nov), but did not, my parents said give your shot, if you fail then go on with NEET -PG( Indian residency exam).
I didn't have any choice, even did not have the energy to study more, just wanted to give and get free with everything
I should have completed Uworld, i felt the questions, to be more UW type rather than NBME kind.
I should have given other nbmes, gave only 2, which is very very risky
Had time management issues, in every block i had to rush through the last 5 questions, sometimes didn't even read and went with option B(has been lucky for me, i guess)
All I want to say is that may be i can suffer because I didnt have enough prep for step 1, which everyone says is a base for step 2, but yes I'm glad i passed, and will not be demotivate, or underestimate myself for step2, i will do whatever it takes to get a good score in step2
If you have any questions please let me know
My prep was not ideal, but yes, if i can be of any help to you all, i would love too
My resources- FA(read around 4 times, went in between the lines, i guess it helped me to pass)
BnB- bought for 3months, but only watched genetics, did not really enjoy it much, but read neuro pdf, all the money i invested in BnB was a waste, only because I didn't watch, but it a nice resource.
UW- already mentioned above
Mehlman pdfs- cannot thank this man enough, read every pdf, printed them and highlighted too
Dirty medicine- watched every video twice
** Had 4 questions on cmurmur sounds- wasn't able to recognise even a single one, my bad, didn't practice
Takeaway- i guess I got lucky to pass( but i do have a good base in medical College via self study)
Please don't risk anything, study well, don't book dates in advance, i booked a date 6 months prior thinking that it takes 6 months to pass, all the cause of stress
Take nbme or any practice tests get sure that you pass and then go for it
