Unhappy NBME 290/172.... Need advice.... Please!! ??

Got dishearted with my NBME 11 score. Scored 290/172.

I read Goljan RR, CMMRS, BRS physio and rest Kaplan and FA. Did once except FA(3times).

Uworld qbank 53%

NBME 6 offline 124 correct ans. (2 days back)

NBME 11 online 290/172 with 80 wrong questions (Today)

Exam is on 16th Nov. (after 2wks)

Please guide me. Should I extend my date? (how long?)

Should I watch DIT videos? Are they worthful? or only FA and qbank and try again? or any other advice?

I am looking for 85-90. I am also working 3days/wk for living. Study 12-14hrs(on 4 days) and 2-3hrs other days. I will take 2wks off once I get good marks on NBME

Just want to get rid of this exam.

Appreciate for helping me.

Thanks for looking.

first of all postponed your exam for a month at least (till the end of your eligibility), then
re do UW and study the explanation thoroughly and sure with first aid
then give another NBME. if you get ready go for it

I agree with ozon. Extend your exam one more month. And stick to Uworld and FA. Do FA as many times as you can but with a thorough read, focusing on each word. Good luck! Don't panic too much...Relax and study.

i think you need to change your test date and need to do DIT.

if the current strategy is not working, its time to change into something new and see if that helps.

do DIT and it will surely bring your score up and your confidence!
