Help Scored 219 in NBME Form 6

Did online NBME 6

Scored 219 with 38 wrong
I expected higher with 81% correct

I would like an advice from you guys what should I do.
I have already done 2x Kaplan, FA and Goljan and also Kaplan Qbank subject-wise, have 86% UW still left and exam on 27th of December.

Postponement is the last option for me. Hopefully I would improve after I complete USMLE World

Your sincere advice will be very helpful

Thanks

Hey usmle2011, u still have 3 weeks to go! So plenty of time to improve and 219 is a good start! I wouldnt postpone the exam, just do an NBME again in 10 days. I would focus in FA and Uworld. Just go back to the other books, if u feel u forgot a concept or something bigger. Did u check your mistakes on the NBME? what were your weak areas? try to work extra hard on them and I am sure u will be fine! Best of luck!

Dont postpon the exam. . .
I was consistantlly getting around 220s in nbme but my score improved in last days. . .
Just concentrate on your weak area . . Dont think about behavioral science ehics questions, thats weak topic of many students try to cover the score in other area. . .
I just gave the exam last day and its really doable. . .
Was facing same problem like you. . .
