Yeah , thats the most appropriate thing to do , my result ruined my Vacations. I know, its not an important exam for pgy1 but still feeling bad My performance in neurology is very bad, I dont understand why the board exams give so much weightage to Neurology with just 2 months of neuro roatation in residency tenure. Well, how many questions we need to answer correct to score good. Anyways , I will try work on this exam next year. Cheers
PS: Faebinder , I am sure you must have done great.
We finally got ours back. I am happy with my score, but my future as a Psychiatric Miscellanist is grim - near the bottom of my class! I also randomly did very well in child, which I detest, and not so hot in Geri, which is what I want to specialize in.
One year I recall being #27 out of 28 residents on my Child score....and I had kids!
Maybe your kids aren't textbook material for psychiatry?
Quite a few people seem to be reporting here that their favorite area is where they scored worst:
- Faebinder is great at forensics and detests it
- kcrd hates kids and got a great score
- kcrd loves geriatric psych and didn't do stellar there
Considering the trends in our data,
you might be in the running for being world's greatest Dad?
I just got my results today. Can't believe it. I scored the lowest in my class in psychiatry, and the highest in neuro/neuroscience. I guess I should have considered neurology residency.
Any idea about how the scoring works for PRITE? Is there any "passing score"?
