Step 2 ck exam experience

hi all
I gave my exam on September 8. Went in very confident but for some reason came out feeling very positive I might have bombed the exam. Did uw 2x. First time % was 79% second time was 95%. Felt the exam was tougher than uw but covers the same concepts. I just feel that I did horrible on the exam. Was kinda nervous thru the first 20 qs in the first block but managed to finish on time then took a break to regroup. Started feeling better thru the second block on, but by the fourth I had developed a mild headache. Was pressed on time. I normally finish with 10-15 mins left in uw but barely manged 2-3 minutes on exam day and in some blocks only seconds. I have no idea why I am feeling like I bombed it. I remember some qs which I got wrong and then stopped thinking about the qs. Did anybody feel that way? I do not want to bring anyone down, this is my experience and I just want advice on how to deal with this. Does anybody know when will the results be out? Thanks

Hi, I actually prepared for a good 1 year with Kaplan online prep (high quality lectures){didn't refer their notes though} and 1-2 review books for each subject. That was bulk of my study. I supplemented it with u world, Kaplan q bank and little bit usmle rx q bank. MTB I just sifted through once. I scored 250, which is what I was aiming for. I have a kid, so it took longer as I cud study just 3-5 hours a day consistently. All the best to you!
