Listening NBME 12 Score 221, Exam pending

Hey everyone, need some final last bit advice and thoughts. So I finally took an NBME today. took nbme 12 and managed a 500/221. As per the NBME chart thread its got a good correlation after NBME 7. This is a 13 point improvement in as many days from my last NBME which was 11 (scored 207). So now, my exam is in 8 days. I've still (yeah i know!) got 30% Uworld left. and want to read my FA atleast once before the exam! Possible? dunno. So! what would you guys suggest I try and cover/do in these last few days? Also, how would you guys (those who've given the exam) rate the correlation between the actual exam and the 12 (I found it a bit easier than 11, tho maybe its just the 13 days gap)...Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. thanks!

Its probably not wise to post pone unless you're not satisfied with the NBME predicted score.. people on other forums have stated 12 is a perfectly good predictor.

You might want to do 7 and 11 just for kicks because people state questions do pop up that are like that on the real thing...

Oh now i see the post has been edited...

I ask for postpone based on your NBME score before the form 12 which was 207. Which was too borderline. In other hand 221 is a good score, if i were you i will take the exam by the end of month ( which is how you are planing to do ) and go with confidence, 221 is above 90+.

It really depends on what score are you looking for, but in this week i would advice to re-read FA and take 1 or 2 days before the exam FREE usmle form 150 which is also a good form. if you score +80 you are good to go.

Well at some level, I feel that if I do push it ahead and use the extra time (say another week or 2) I should be able to touch the late 230s or 240 (lol, maybe!). And that would be the ideal score for me, even though the more the merrier. But I really want to apply this year, or atleast give it a shot. So with a step 1 in hand and a cs and some lors I want to try. And as I said, with this never ending cycle, I kind of want it to end now! I'm hoping to pick up some 10-12 points in the next week (optimistically) and then give the exam. So was looking for some tips on how to maximise that. friend of mine just got his result yest, he had a 219 7 days before exam on nbme 3, managed a 226 in a week, missed a 99 by 3 pts,lol...So I'm also banking on nbme 12 being a good predictor! Wish me luck guys, and any advice you can...will post my journey after the exam, lots of ups and downs!
