Keep your head up and try your best to not let this test feel like it defines you, because it doesn't. It is just one hurdle that you will overcome. I do not know what your goals are in the profession, but take this time to reflect and prepare yourself to knock it out next time. You were obviously close, so a few things here and there could make all the difference.
Don't read too much into other threads either about how easy it was or this/that, it is easier to say those things once you're on the other side. Everyones experience coming up and going through pharmacy school is different, be proud that you made it this far and that YOU WILL pass the Naplex in the future.
It really sucks, I'm sorry to hear that. But I guess on to the next, right?You are not alone, I just found out today that I failed and I am devastated. Especially since I was so close to passing. The majority of my cases were in my weak points (HIV and oncology) and I had hoped doing well in the calculations, biostats and other random cases would be enough.
Hello, I'm sorry to hear that.
I was in your exact same situation, I failed in May and have not taking it yet. I did not feel like studying after I failed, but I realized that I will take it sooner or later and no one is wasting time but me.
I don't think there is a way to take it sooner than 45 days. But I would take it all, try to go over questions of the chapter that you are good at so u do not forget them.
And what was said above is correct, I started looking at it this way, you are studying the material again and that will help you to be better at your career ( now keep in mind, failing the exam does not mean you are not good, it only means you were not lucky enough that day to pass)
Best of luck,
You are not alone, I just found out today that I failed and I am devastated. Especially since I was so close to passing. The majority of my cases were in my weak points (HIV and oncology) and I had hoped doing well in the calculations, biostats and other random cases would be enough.
I feel so sorry to hear that and I also feel quite nervous having the exam scheduled soon.
There is a saying which I like most: This shall come to pass! It just might take more time than expected but for sure, you will be fine!
Btw, I am planning to study oncology focusing on only chemo and SE not trying to remember brand name and target therapies.. Could you share your experience with oncology questions?
