Maybe you should try taking nbme 11 this week and see where that puts you.

HI,

I can understand your apprehension.I am not saying you are going to get poor scores.Your most current nbme showed a 221 and uwsa 2 of 257 ,which is a very good score.If you are okay with a score around 210-225,you are already ready to go.BUt if you badly need a high score,my suggestion would be to take another nbme(atleast offline) and if you get above 155-160 answers correct atleast ,you can ignore nbme 6 score.But if you need some thing in 90's u must answer 160+ in nbmes approx.

Just my 2 cents.But if you are feeling confident and already saturated with reading for a long time my suggestion would be to revise as much as possible and go for the exam as scheduled.

thank you so much examsmasher, i will try to do another nbme 2-3days before my exam, but i guess im gonna go for test, no matter what... everybody wants to score high, but sometimes u reach the peak and not retaining any more new information, thats where i am right now... i have been studying for step 1 for a year already (on n off) and 6 months straight... i will be happy around 210 score... i will continue to scan through FA and notes will the day... THANK YOU so much for the message, somehow you built up my confidence, lot of thanks...
