  did u just get ur result today? cuz it usually comes out on a Wednesday....

Anyways, i am sorry to hear tht. @ least this time around u know wht u r really weak with and wht not. Take a small break, and come back @ it strongly

Try doing Goljan, pathoma, 1st aid and UWORLD (and if time permits, do Kaplan Q bank) !

  please do at least 2 nbme online, if you do 80% correct like 40 wrong answers from 200 you get 219.
