my friends say nbme 7 is more difficult than nbme 11,12
one of my friends got 175 questions right in both nbme 7 and 11
in nbme 7 it's 238 and in 11 it's 242
so scoring is also tougher in nbme 7

In last week of December, I did NBME 1, 2, and 3, with correct ones 157 to 152 range. They all are very easy. Will do another thorough read of FA with UW and then another NBME.

Its the same situation with me, I make a subject one, go back to cover other week areas, when I come back to the previous one, after few days and I find, In an attempt to make other subject strong, now my strong subject is weak, Now I am thinking, the only solution to this problem is that I should do whole FA in 10 days.

Good luck and don't lose hope, believe in yourself, you can do it.

Keep yourself motivated and on right tract.

I have taken 6, 7 and 11, scoring 590, 570 and 590 respectively, and form 7 was the hardest for me. I felt the other two, 6 and 11, were pretty similar in terms of difficulty. I got "stars" in most subjects in 6 and 11, but only like 1 star in form 7.

But that's just me. I know people who say 7 is easier than the others... in the end, it all depends on your particular strengths and weaknesses.
