Default 100/143 on first NBME. Has anyone else started with this low a score?

Just took my first NBME (13) and got an assessment score of 100 (3-digit: 143). And this is after having studied for over a month. I wasn't expecting much, but this low a score is really demoralizing.

Has anyone else started this low and gotten to 220+?

Hey man,its okay,don't get discouraged,it happens to a lot of us,i didn't pass in any of my nbme's but passed on the real test,so anythings possible.A lot of hard work and constant grind is required though to get past these exams.

After all studying is a skill that can be developed with hrs and hrs of practice just like any other skill....so try your best and good luck.
