Default Nbme 13

Nbme 13 score 210 6 weeks out of D-Day.

Good enough?
Considering i read nbme 13 is a little tough compared to the other ones.

Hi, Just took NBME 13 too - did you have a tomato and lettuce - poisoning questions - God Damn - retarded ever question - couldn't calculate, just guesses and moved on - was running in time - in general got 224, on August 29 - took NBME 7 - was 217 - for 20 days repetition only 7 scores up - very frustrated

You are welcomed can join to our NBME 13 discussion group - post all your wrong questions from NBME 13 - some questions require broader conceptual approach - I can't find them over FA, going back to Kaplan Books;

Default scoring

In general finished reviewing all my wrong questions from NBME 13 - in total 200 questions = wrong answered question 38 ( expanded feedback has provided 38 question in repetitive manner as a wrong and in subject-wise) = in percentage 38/200= 19% wrong = then 81% questions I have got right = but still 224 -and I don't understand how these scoring works on UWSA 2nd 72% was correct answer which gave 242 in score 3*-digit score . Thanks in advance for sharing thoughts.

That is because of the fact that different assessment forms on NBME and UWSA have different levels of difficulty. Therefore, the score correlation varies accordingly.
