Now that I have completed my Step 2 Ck, I am not sure if I should be happy that I am done, or worry about my score for the next few weeks.
The exam itself was very long. It was an 8-hr exam with 1-hr of break. By the end of the exam I was exhausted. For some reason, it was far more tiring than Step 1. I cannot really pin point it to a reason why, but Step 1 felt like it was so much more easier to go through each block.
What could I have done differently to study for the test? I wish I paid more attention to certain disorders more than others, and I wish if I spent more time memorizing some small details. Oh well, I did what I could, and I hope that everything works out fine.
I would not have been able to study as hard as I did and abandon all the other things in my life, without the help and support of my family and friends. It is at times like these that I realize how blessed I am to have such a great support system that is loving, caring and accepts me for who I am.
Now, that the hardest task of my summer is over and while the weather is still beautiful, I am excited to enjoy what’s left of the summer.
On a side note, I cannot believe four years of medical school career is soon coming to a completion in less than 6 months. It’s exciting, yet a lot of work still has to be done.
