    Hi everyone . i need your valuable opinion. i got my score for the computer part i took recently- 85%. I am very dissapointed as I thought had prepared well and used to consistently get about 75% questions right when practising old tests or kaplan q bank. the exam was difficult but i was confident i would get atleast 90%. I don't know what went wrong.
    I don't know what to do now ,whether i should retake the exam hoping to improve my scores or try to get a good score in part 2 to get my confidence back.
    :confused:

    From my past experience,
    Apply to all the schools whose deadlines are still not over .
    I would suggest you to retake part 1 as early as possible.As i guess ,you took part 1 recently so it would be easy for you to recall everything.
    cheer up.

    Hi there,

    Firstly, don't worry! Apply to all the schools you can still apply to and in the meantime begin preparing for Part I again. What was the breakdown of your score:

    Anatomy=___%
    Biochem=___%
    Dent Anatomy=____%
    Micro=____%

    Do you have any work experience?

    Best,
    Dr.Fun
