Regarding p/f

12 comments

Respected sir/madam , I’m actually half done with my FA not yet started UW but with my current pace it will take around 6 months more honestly to finish FA+UW but I’m constantly getting anxious whenever I saw P/F going to happen from this January is there a way for me finish step 1 before P/F thing to achieve the score of 250? Or should I continue with my pace and have to wait for official news? I’m super confused I’ll be happy if you can help me to get out of this situation?

thank you.

I would not worry about Step 1 becoming pass/fail anytime soon! Just because this is being explored does not mean it will be implemented immediately. I would not change your test date based on this fear and still focus on distinguishing yourself with an excellent score.

    I am a currently a third year who is finishing my second last rotation on June 14th, then I have a 2 week break followed by my obgyn core rotation until July 26. I have two weeks after my obgyn rotation when I have it off and I am taking my step 2 on aug 9th and level 2 on aug12th. I have been doing uworld during 3rd year here and there. I had a few questions regarding how to proceed further: 1) Would it be beneficial to create a test for all the wrong questions on uworld vs going through the flashcards on uworld which has their tables.  2) Should I do the second pass on uworld by resetting only after addressing the wrong questions first? 3) During my two week break, would it be a good strategy to a dedicate two full days for reading the step2ck book or watching OMED videos or DIT videos ? Is it best to use these resources when I get a question wrong instead of just reading them for the sake of completing it.

    Hi- I was wondering if you could advise on how to find reputable explanations to the new NBME tests. I have taken 18 and 20 and I am just making a google doc with information about questions I have missed. I have found some information on 18 but very little for form 20. Also just curious on your thoughts about a 243 score on UWORLD practice test #1. I am only about 30% through UWORLD questions and was just wondering if that was a trusted score. Thanks!

    Did a practice test on 2/15/2019 NBME 18, got a predicted 169.. I had a 515 (95%) on the MCAT. In this test it felt like I just didn't have the facts to choose the right answers, but I swear my test-taking skills are good. Can I turn this around and score well (250+) on Step 1? My exam is scheduled for June 11th... Thoughts?
