    I'm looking for study partners for this exam. Perhaps we can go over questions together. Shoot me a message if interested! :)

    PHEW. The exam this year was a mess. I didn't study enough last year but last years wasn't perfect but way better. I studied like crazy this year and except for a lil neuro the psychiatry, I wouldn't have studied any differently . The test was a few days earlier this year and results came out at 830 am on this date last year. I SO don't want to have this random exam again. I graduated in 2015 didn't take it the first year so my BE time is tick tocking away. Thank you.

    Just found out that the general psychiatry MOC exam, starting in 2018, will have approximately 5% neurology questions

    I think the point is the MOC exam never used to have any neuro questions

    Study questions throughout the year and no more exam. Still pay money is what they want.

    It seems unprofessional and amateurish that they originally promised results by the 12th and then pushed it back by ten days. How can it take this long to score a multiple choice computer exam?

    I like to think they they're giving back a lot more points so more people pass. :D

    Shhhh let me believe.

    Ditto :). They released the child psych scored before the stated date so maybe any day. 11 more days after today. Last year results were sent at 830 am

    I doubt it. They got right down to the wire and extended it ten days. They should have a good ETA by then and wouldn’t say the 22nd if it wasn’t pretty damn close to that.

    They charge $500 extra for a one day late registration but blow their own deadline for score reporting by 2 weeks and its NBD.

    One day this week for initial results. Child psych was released a few days early. If not today, at least by Friday. Good luck to all. It has been a long excruciating wait.

    I'm pretty sure there's no way to game the system. It will either tell you that you passed or failed, and any other way you tried to read into it is just going to mess with you more.

    There’s no sense in checking. Right when they were due to release scores, they extended it 10 days. There’s no way it comes out before then.
