Default nbme score dropped

Please help!

My nbme score dropped from a 450 (form 13) to a 420 (form 12). My exam is september 30th. Has anyone experienced this? How much of a score increase can I expect if I focus on all my weak points?

In all fairness, I thought form 12 was MUCH harder than 11. It had quite a lot of abstract q's.

I think you can easily cross the 500 mark if you just focus on your strengths. At least that's what I keep telling myself.

Hey thank you so much. My confidence really dropped when i saw that score. I took the nbme-13 2 weeks ago and it sucks to have seen my score go down after 2 weeks of really killing uworld. I have 2 weeks left till my actual exam so I am really trying to target my weak spots. The nbme-12 genetics really kicked my ass.
