well if I post something to share then everybody would be dropping their emails in here...its very sad nobody have come up with any kind of advice...I think the standard of this forum site is dropping down to the level of exchanging resources or telling what people can give information bout how the exam was and if anybody can tell how and what was asked in the exam...if I pass hopefully and post my experience then I know people will be writing down in there within seconds...just a sad truth...anyways thanks to the forums for everything else I got to learn good or bad..

Hi,
I think 30 points in one month is kind of a stretch, but since chance is always a factor in any exam and you may have had a bad day while taking nbme also...Nobody can tell you for sure. What is sure is one month is plenty of time if use wisely... If I were you I'll take an another nbme in one or two weeks and ponder the result then.
Just my opinion, I'm in the same boat kind of, and taking the test end of October also...
Good luck!

Nice observation!
Just go over uworld well getting all concepts in mind.
Nbmes improve with time. It's not only the knowledge but test taking skills.
Don't worry friend, but learn FA very well becos I think FA plus uworld when done very well with understanding get you into 230s

You would agree with me that some of the questions u met in nbme 12, u have not seen anywhere before! Also some were basic social questions that need some application but mostly 80% or so are in FA.
