Hi everyone I took step 2 ck yesterday and I felt terrible about the whole exam. I did so much educated guessing and struggled with many questions. I also constantly changed my answers after thinking about the questions and didn’t agree with my initial choice. I am super worried that I dropped 30-40 points below my practice test score. There were questions that I could not have prepared for, as I did all the uworld questions and I made my own anki deck and still didn’t cover many topics on the test. I was going to submit the application without step 2 score in two weeks and if I scored well, then I’ll add the score. I’m trying to apply to internal medicine at academic program to become a hospitalist. Does anyone else feel terrible after the test? Did practice test score really predict actual score?

I also felt the same way and scored pretty close to my UWSA2 score. Anything can happen on test day, but trust your scores and preparation.
