    i started archer but didn't finish it, went only through a few uworld cases , i mainly practiced with CCS cases , did all those 100 cases 2-3 times and it really worked, ccs really saved my exam

    Hi,
    Congratulations to all who passed the test. The difference of my and you score results is that my CCS is borderline. My score is 190. There is only one UWSA. Did you do it twice?

    yes this is it! it gives you feedback on how you do at the end and all the points you have to cover, it doesn't really help with sequencing much but archer and crush ccs 3 can help with that.
    there are two uwsa 1 and 2 , and now two nbme 4 and 5 form.

    i feel it comlicated the cases alot, because on the real exam, i had alot of lag, no time to put so many orders in. I put orders fast, you might want to put the lag time 2second if you purchase the 100 ccs cases.

    Same boat in here! Last day was 9/5, print schedule link dissapeared last night, but my status still says Active and Approved. I think we might get score this week, and tomorrow AM will see whether we have a link or not. Anxiety is over the top, Gosh I just want to be done with this...

    Of course I couldn't sleep yesterday, I refreshed the page like 100 times. Thank God, expired status, no link to reapply so far, seem like we are on the right track. Let us hope this trick still works!

    Is it better than archer? I am confused which one is best aside from uworld CCS. I don’t want to use too many resources.

    Check your Permit at the NBME candidate website. IF permit link has disappeared you will be getting your score the week... You can check your score Wednesday 12mn ET

    I took my second exam on 9/28. Briefly skimmed through this entire thread. From what people have said, there should be no link anywhere on the fsmb site that takes you to reapply. I'm sorry.

    Checked mine yesterday- expired and no link, checked again today- still expired and no link. If you compare your screen to the one on page 5 maybe that might help, mine looks just like that. I’m sorry man

    Is it safe to assume that majority of people get their results on the 4th wednesday. I don't see any posts on this forum for 3rd wednesday results.

    Scores are up! Trick worked :) Passed! Congrats to all who passed. For those who didn’t or are just searching through the thread- I used DIT to review prior to UWorld, completed a little more than 60% with 62% correct.

    NBME 4: 490 2.5 months out
    UWSA 1: 188 2 weeks out
    UWSA 2: 222 5 days out
    Real thing: 223 :soexcited:

    Tricks Work exactly as stated here. PASSED!!!!!


    1. If you take your exam before wednesday or same wednesday, your score will be release 3rd wednesday after the first day, the second seems that it does not affect the release day if its within same week.
    2. If you go to FSMB and says EXPIRE with not link to reapply and
    3. Candidate website with no permit, most likely your score will be release next wednesday. Also 99% you just passed.... i was skeptical.
    My permit disappear on saturday before score release day. Still, i got a passing score and finall OFFFFFF of USMLE, for does who did not pass, i highly encourage you to keep fighting this thing, a test cant ever define you... GO FOR IT!!!!

    Congratulations I hope all of us pass. My first day was 09/18 and the score is not out there yet. My status is still approved and just have the message" your eligibility period is going to expire soon" on the gray box. Did you have the same thing at the end>

    I got my score this week.
    It was a third Wednesday.
    Was pleasantly surprised.

    I know my post is anecdotal, however. But it’s out there!

    Second exam was on 9/28. I wasn't expecting my results this week, but just checked FSMB and found that it has changed to "expired." No link at the bottom. Hope it stays that way. As we learned from Doc_prag30, it is possible for the link to show up later.
