Hi All,
I got my step 3 result & I failed, got 176.
My test performance-
Most of the bars (Qs n CCS) are in middle or lower range.
Systems low- Infectious Diseases, Respiratory, GI, Endo, MusculoSkeletal
Subjects low- Health Maintenance, Legal & Ethical, Peds/ InPatient, ER

What I did-
Listening- Kaplan Step 3 Lectures
Reading- Kaplan Step 3 Notes + MTB (Step3)
Qs- Kap step 3 Qbank + UW step 3 Q- solved & Analyzed - 3 times
My practice tests score- Kap n UW Q bank ~70%, NBME ~425 but both test tools were repeated, so I couldn't count on it in much.
CCS- UW-CCS- solved cases n read downloadable cases- 2 times

What NEXT-
Honestly I feel like hanging myself to ceiling. But thats not going to solve step 3 for me. So took date in Aug. to give it again.
Does anyone has any suggestion what can I do different this time?
I'm thinking of-
Reading- Archer theory lectures + MTB
Practice Tools- same K Q bank +UW Q bank
CCS- same Archer CCS + UW-CCS
Sh how should I do these things/ any other things to pass this test?
If you have any more tips at this for me let me know.
