Help Exam in 19 days. HELP!

Hi guys! I am taking Step 1 in less that 3 weeks. Ive taken 2 NBMEs so far and here are my scores!

NBME 7. 280 (5 weeks ago)
NBME 12. 450 (Today!)

Is it possible that my score in NBME 12 is higher that 7 only due to chance?!?!
I am so tired of studying and i feel like its counter productive @ this point SO i am just aiming to pass. Do you guys think its possible to pass with my NBME scores.. im really confused!! I appreciate your thoughts on this .. Thanks guys

What does your score correlate to in the Step1 3 digit scale?

Keep studying... Just tell yourself you put so much time and hardwork... You cant quit now! U can do it if all others did!

In that case... You did much better in NBME 12 (today) than you did before.. So you are in the right track...
Think about.... Can you extend your date? Do you really want to extend your date? Or do you think you can go over FA again and again another few times and the areas you are week at... Or may be look over the wrong questions that you got in uworld... If you can do those then you can definitely improve the score before your exam date... If not then you can extend the date...

over 40 points of improvement i hardly call that luck, so ypou are doing better, if you can postpone do it, at least for another month, if not then only read your weak areas and try to know FA and the questions you got wrong from qbanks by heart

You might have gotten few (max 5) questions by luck... Don't you think its alot that u got right compared to the first time? I don't think all of it can be luck...
Can you change your exam date? When does ur eligibility period end?

If you have to take it at the end of the month then you can go ahead.. Except make sure you buckle urself up and do first aid over and over.. And do those uworld questions (incorrect ones) again and again.
Good luck!

That is a definite improvement, and you still have over 2 weeks. Aim to go over your first aid at least once, emphasizing on your weak areas. Continue doing many questions too. Try not to read the day before your exam-relax as much as possible on that day and sleep early. You'll make it.
