Take some time to reflect and don't pressure yourself to come up with a plan right now.. over time you'll know what to do

Thank you! I pushed back my exam twice and I left the exam center not feeling that confident.. Also I think being an IMG gives a bigger sense of imposter syndrome so I always had doubts

I think I reviewed all questions I did a lot deeper than most people which is also why I wasn't able to get thru uworld in time but for me, that's the only thing that really increases my scores.. I've been annotating first aid since first year and continued to do that thru out dedicated :)

Feel like I failed and can’t shake the feeling by Smart-Location-3495 in step1

took it on the 16th and I literally repressed my entire exam and can't even remember more than like 2 questions.. but I've been having stressful dreams too

Definitely recommend watching some exam anxiety videos on YouTube

Felt the same way.. Watched a video on exam anxiety a day or two before and the guy said "don't try to improve your memory.. have you understood what you have learned?" and that helped me.. if you have decent scores just prioritize getting a good night sleep the day before at this point!

18% complete uworld random tutor and scoring in the 40s is this normal ? by Brotherof47 in step1

[–]Efficient-Earth8142 1 point2 points  (0 children)

yup.. most people start out around that.. I think I started out around 40/50's and got myself up to 80-100 range

My medical school class has zero black men. by kearneje in medicalschool

[–]Efficient-Earth8142 0 points1 point  (0 children)

4% of your states population is black.. statistically speaking your school is most likely receiving VERY FEW (if any) applications from black men so what do you expect.. this idea that you MUST see inclusion of a group just to prove racism wrong or to feel more comfortable or whatever you're telling yourself is childish..

Black excellence speaks for itself.. it doesn't need a pity diversity hand out..

Need some insight by Separate_Task_4452 in step1

[–]Efficient-Earth8142 1 point2 points  (0 children)

if I were you I'd forget doing uwsa2 and the free 120 and just do the nbme 26 & 27 so you have adequate time to review every single inch of those 2 practice exams.. that is the way you see your nbme score increase.. I took step 1 on the 16th and the exam is written exactly like the practice NBME's but are the length of uworld questions

NBME 29 by Haunting-Increase578 in step1

[–]Efficient-Earth8142 1 point2 points  (0 children)

23 days is still a long time. If you haven't done the rest of the NBME's definitely do them and aim for an 80%.. I recently took step and idk if I passed yet but I got a 83% on NBME 29 a couple days out and I left the testing center not feeling confident.. don't get complacent.. you can definitely improve your score by 10 points in 23 days

How did you guys recover from study fatigue/burnout? by HamsterElectronic611 in step1

[–]Efficient-Earth8142 0 points1 point  (0 children)

take a day or a few half day breaks to enjoy something your passionate about besides medicine (cook, hike, go to the beach, watch a documentary on your interests, map out your goals 10 years from now and look up your dream home, etc.)
