Took step 2 CK July 27 whats the chance anyone gets score before Sept 14?!? The waiting is horrible
When your past the eligibility period listed on the APPLY box it says "scheduling is not available" instead of "print permit". If you were still inside the eligibility period and the print permit disappeared it could mean scores will be released that Wednesday. This is most likely not the case.Is this what you see on the NBME site?
I never gave Age/sex/race much attention during my Ck prep as it has nothing to do with the pathophysiology of a disease and more to do with statistics , Age/Sex/race might of been helpful for step1 since most of pathology is presented in the most classical way. On step 2 they are not , step 2 is big on Atypical presentations. On ck it's not uncommon for a male to present with breast cancer, SLE etc...The age of presentation is killing me with certain questions. I remember choosing a wrong answer choice of a question that showed an x-ray indicating that the pt had ankylosing spondylitis, however from my reading this condition usually happens in 20 year olds. the child was 7 so I got it wrong.
Another similar question about a child having a VCF due to chronic use of corticosteroid use, and child was 14 or so.
What really got under my skin was taking the CCSE recently through my school, and having a question about a 4mth old child with the s/s of meningitis asking which bug is it. There was a picture attached to the question showing diplococci. I came down to Listeria and S.Pneumo, and chose the former. Is it a trend to see that picture questions at times go against the grain of what we've been taught for the pathophysiology of diseases?
I don't know if that necessarily means you will get your score back this week. I sat for the exam Sept 2, and my permit's gone--my eligibility period ends 9/30/16 too. I doubt I'm getting my score back this week.Permit disappeared. Test date: July 29th. Eligibility period: 04/01/2016 - 09/30/2016. Don't want my score back :'(
Same here. Gah. Just hope I do better than Step 1. Probably won't be able to sleep next few nightsMy permit disappeared too and I'm also still within the eligibility period (Sept 30). I took my exam in mid-August. Feeling this Wednesday will be the day, according to one of their prior announcements http://www.usmle.org/announcements/?ContentId=182. Exam was tough so I'm pretty nervous.
I just got my score report, took it on august 25th.So anyone who took their exam on 8/27/16, I can tell you scores aren't coming today (just got off the phone with a USMLE rep- she wouldn't let me know the exact date that counted as "late august" lol) - the struggle is real
