Default Plz help exam soon!!!

I have been preparing for usmle for last two years. For now I took a nbme 11 offline about a month ago and scored 227. after that I revised my FA once and did almost 15 blocks of uworld in which my average is 75 . My block ends in oct after extension. So I was deciding to take my exam on 15th . I was deciding to go on without taking another nbme as I was thinking that if I get bad marks in nbme it will demoralize me. what do u guys suggest? Should I wait another few days and take it till the end of oct or should I just go for the big day?

Take another NBME (16 or 17) and see where you stand. Yes, the scores may demoralize you, but they will also show you where you need to put more work into.
You have worked too hard for this.

Correct Answer take another one

The offline NBME are good for practice, but the online NBME online will give a score to the real test result and also give you your weak areas....

Take one of most recent ones if you can! Look at your weak areas and work on those with the time you have remaining with FA/UW.

Best of luck

I agree with everyone on this post.

Do an online NBME, it will give you a more accurate estimation of your score!

Take an online NBME RIGHT NOW! Let's say NBME 16. Work the hardest you can in the next 20 days. Put everything else in the world aside. No fun, no responsibilities. Only USMLE on your mind. Work on your weak areas shown by the online nbme. Focus on FA, Uworld, Pathoma.
Then take another online NBME (17) 5 days before the exam. Keep working hard. Take a good night sleep before your exam. Take the exam a day before your eligibility period ends, like on Oct 30/31.
YOU CAN DO IT! You've worked so hard for so long. Success is just around the corner. You just need to give a final really hard push! GO! Good luck!

Hey I'm going for my second attempt and I just got done with NBME 17
I passed according to the prediction by NBME but definitely did not feel good enough to take it in 4 days so I postponed it to the last week of October and my extension ends the very next day. I got to see what my weak areas are am now just trying to focus on them, re-reading FA because I keep forgetting minor details and all my annotations and in addition going over my Pharma cards. Best of luck for the exam!

I have the same problem buddy, don't get disappointed. for sure do NBME again. that's how it is. try to understand why you are getting wrong answers. sometimes it's just because of distractions which can be fixed easily.
good luck
