NBME is 200 questions, online is the one you pay. Offline is the one in pdf.

Are you saying you did the first 50 questions?... if so, do the 200.

At this pace, if you do 200 questions, you will get 64 wrong or 136 right...using the conversion formula 136 *1.38= 188 which is pretty bad lol

sometimes you score better in one section, and in the next you score low, at the end, the 4 sections count. Just try to score above 75%, if so you are ready for the online.
