Default need assisstance...NBME score 420

hello all, im planning on doing step 1 on Oct 12, ive done kaplan n goljan RR and 1st aid (1st aid like 5 times) and did UWORLD almost twice with an avg score of 64. today i did NBME form 7 and i scored 420, isnt that low? in that conversion table it is equal to a 200?!! im really surprised from this score, when i was doing the qs i didnt find them hard at all and answered most thinking that they are right...but well the score tells it.
so anyways my exam is in less than 3 weeks, should i take it? im gonna keep on reading 1st aid n maybe do another 1 or 2 NBME forms b4 the exam, what do u guys think?

hey i think u should delay your exam or give another nbme online .they say if u score more then 500 on nbme u are on safe side.trust me nbme score correlates very well with your actual exam score.i did nbme 11 few days back and while doing i thought it was not that tough but i got a 400 on it.i guess that means more studying hard.anyways dont rush into the exam.best of luck

They tend to overstimate your score, but it is a good boost for the confidence ... =) Do it... =)
