* step 2 ck fail
  av_a - 01/16/15 13:18
  hi guys, I received my ck score and unfortunately I failed. I tried very hard, had good scores on nbme 4and 6 ( 248,246) but in the real exam I couldn't manage the time properly. :(
I am an IMG, graduate 2010, passed my step 1 with only pass score, pass cs on first attempt, and now a fail in ck. I feel really disappointed and I don't know if its worth giving another try?!
is there still any chance to get a residency in us and what can I do to increase my chance ?

But so many people will disagree but i found must people who do Kaplan Qbank always do well in the exams.

Am talking to IMGs.
We read a lot of experiences but lets not be fooled,there may just be something different for AMG that make them do better.

i just finished kaplan qbank and started usmleworld. i have also done consult 75%.

The truth is UW does is not sufficient for this exam for IMG.

  thank u guys for your advices , nothing is impossible . even if u didn't make it u learn a lot from the steps , definitely worth the try .

if u have low score u can always boost it with Researchs or clinical experiences .

i didn't get a good score on step 1 as well but i passed . so let's do this !! .

  honestly guys speed reading wont help you.. I don't mean to be rude but the reason you have trouble finishing within the alotted time is because you have no idea what you are reading. when reviewing your questions you need to re-read vignettes especially of the questions you get incorrect and break down every word and process what is being said before you look at the answer. after you understand whats going on look at the answer that is marked correct then again try and explain it to yourself why that is the answer and the wrong answer is wrong. Then after all that actually look at the explanation. the more knowledge you gain the faster you will run thru the questions because you will understand much faster.

also someone above said read the last sentence and i agree to be honest on the actual step 2 exam i felt like you needed to start right in the middle of the paragraph and read down, look at the answer choices, then go back to the top if necessary.
