I am USMD made 203 on step 1. My step 2 CK is scheduled for Jan 4. UWorld first pass 56% UWSA1: 201 UWSA2: 211 the score predictor in Reddit predicts 220s based on these results. I personally just want to pass the first time. So should I take it or allow myself another month of study?

I most definitely can offer you some hope that you can pass this beast whatever option you chose. I was just looking to pass also.

USMD
Step 1: 200s
NBME 6: 166 (1 month out)
NBME 7: 167 (3 weeks out)
UW% 56 (1st pass, started April this year)
UWSA1: 218 ( 1 week out)
Predicted score: 228 +/- 17 (Predictmystepscore.com)
Real deal: 240s (exam Dec. 16th)

I started dedicated the week of Thanksgiving only going over incorrects and listening to DivineIntervention podcasts. I studied while taking care of my newborn, which I would highly not recommend and didn’t request extra time due to this like my school suggested me to.

If your goal is to pass, you shouldn't take it until you're successfully and consistently passing on your practice exams. Just my 2 cents.

Update: took step 2 yesterday. I felt like it was very hard. Felt like I was guessing the whole time. A lot of ethics questions so who knows. I also felt like it had a lot of step 1 like questions that I had to dig deep for and hope I got it correct. Ran out of time on several blocks and ended up guessing. But It’s over all I can do is pray I guessed correctly 60% of the time in order to pass.

Hello.


My grades are similar to yours. I was wondering how you did on the real thing, but I just realized it may be too soon, I don't think you have results yet.

Best, JL
