The only way to know if you're ready is to take an NBME... That will let you know your weaknesses and also you can see your progress

I'd say its fine to pass, just take an NBME to make sure...

hopefully you do pass because I almost have the same scores as you... :sorry:

Oh and you need to edit the thread title and say ''58'' instead of 85... because a person who has 85% on UW will probably get like >260

I think you'r doing fine Dr.Divz you would score more than a 95 for sure. NBME would boost your confidence... Good luck...

do an nbme.....uworld ques are only a study tool...also you have done your incorrects, which means you already saw them before which means the 66% you got is not a good representation....you need to do an NBME b4 anyone on this forum can give you guidance

Depends on you, you have 10 days. Thats crucial, enough to boost your score 10-20pts by hitting weak areas, many say.
And then try NBME 7 or NBME 12, you could very well have a 220 on those going exam, and score even higher.

Postpone if you can. You are within the margin of error of failure so it's a huge risk. Just keep studying, work on your weak areas. You can do this Dr. Divz, just keep pushing!

I took 7 before doing UW, and it hurt me, but showed me a lot.
Take 7, at this point it'll be the best one to help you decide. If you can do fine on 7, then you should be in good shape.
If not then take one of the newer ones like 11 and 12.
I wouldnt take NBME 3 instead of those 3.
Better to be afraid and postpone, than to be overconfident and fail, trust me its not a good feeling!!
