Default Nbme 12

I took NBME 12 yesterday and was shocked by my score.
2wks ago NBME 16 - 237 (84%)
1.5wks ago UWSA2 - 259 (80%)
1wk ago NBME 15 - 237 (85%)
yesterday NBME 12 - 224 (83%)
Just finished UWorld Qbank; first pass, all timed, random 75% and haven't scored below 80% in over a week.

I'm really discouraged and considering pushing my test back as I was hoping to score at least a 240-245. Exam in 1 week.

Taking NBME 13 today and hoping for a morale boost.

Update: Got a 237 again on NBME 13 (86%) - A little disappointed that my scores haven't improved but more disappointed that getting close to 90% of the questions correct doesn't even break 240.
Taking the real think Monday!

Update: I got a 247 on the real thing! Pretty happy about it!
Good luck to you all!!
