Unhappy 184 on NBME Form 11

Today I took my first NBME form 11. I got a a 340/184 and i feel completely crushed. My USWA 1 said 201 which made me somewhat comfortable. I am aiming for a 210-220.. My USW q bank overall is a 55 but the last 14 tests averaged out to a 61. The 8hr kaplan test i got a 63%. I had my exam scheduled for the 04jul2011 but obviously i am pushing that date back.. The only major issue is that I have taken a significant amount of time off of school and I must have my step 1 done by the 7-11 of july. I was feeling a little off my game today but i never thought it was to this extent... please submit ur input..

Hey! Nothing to feel bad about. Sometimes people just have bad days. Let me tell you my story.

So I took NBME 6, which was our school's free diagnostic test for everyone. I got a 260, which obviously wasn't passing. That was about 2 months before I was supposed to take my test. I had been doing Kaplan videos throughout the year and haven't ever been bad in school - average would be the correct term for me. Anyway, I then took form 12 and got a 380 about a month out. I was feeling good about things, finishing up with the DIT videos I got from somebody and thinking I could easily bring that up. About 2 weeks before my scheduled test, I took form 3 and bombed it. I got a 340 and was feeling terrible about it. I looked online to see if I could change my test and there weren't any available testing spots available for me before I had to start my first rotation.

I was in a tough spot and wasn't feeling ready, so I talked with my advisor and we moved my first rotation so that I could have extra time (common thing to do apparently...). I've been studying ever since, but it hasn't always been easy. Some days I'm more productive than others.

Finished UWorld with 55%. Currently doing it again and I'm at 80% and have about 72% left to do.

My scheduled test date is July 27th now. There's no turning back. I've been through all the material once with First Aid, Goljan, BRS phsyio, and Pathoma. My First Aid is MORE than annotated. From here on out I'll just read through that. Tomorrow I'm taking a practice test and plan to take either Form 7 or Form 11. Not sure which, but since 7 according to online forums is more indicative of your score, i'll probably end up taking that one later.

Here goes to doing at LEAST passing. I've put a lot of work into this stupid test and feel like, SOMEWHERE, I should be rewarded for my endurance. Here's to hoping!!!
