i have it offline..solved block 1 and 3..but the answers given suck...they are horrible..and dont judge urselves only by NBMEs..thats how i think..if u look at recent steptakers...there is wide variance in NBME score and real score and one successful steptaker hasnot given a single NBME..just judge it by ur level of satisfaction...i wud go by this way./..so though my exam is in april 2nd..i have left NBMEs for last 2 weeks and uwsas also for itgl

@flowerlady:

There's that harsh reality that uwsa 2 somewhat overpredicts, but to cheer you up:

I haven't taken the nbmes yet, but from feedbacks here, it looks like each nbme/uwsa have different question distributions among subjects. Don't judge yourself by what one nbme tells you. Judge your prep as a collective whole, taking into account all nbmes/uwsas.

If the nbme you took was mostly mol. bio and you did poorly on that nbme, it might mean that you are poor in mol. bio. I don't think it means you have slipped as a whole (in all subjects or in your prep in general).

@everyone else:
Where did you guys get offline nbme 7-12?? Kindly pm me the link. Thankee!

i kind of disagree with the comments above.
nbmes are the best indication you have of where you are.
uwsa's are fun to do and all but they overpredict.
and going based on "self-satisfaction" is comforting and warm and fuzzy and all but its misleading and it doesn't justify all the hard work you've done thus far.

your exam is close, its not the time to sugar coat things.

if i were in your position i would take another nbme to confirm where you are, as maybe you just performed poorly on this one.
try nbme 7 or 12 (online).

There are two types of proverbial truths:

1. The truth that hurts.
2. The truth that will set you free.

NBMEs really hit us hard with no. 1. I wonder which is more painful?

Having a low nbme score or being left at the altar???

what is most strange is that the subject that i was very good in it in last NBME are now low and subjects used to be low are now much more better


thank you so much that is what i must hear the problem is that i dont know how to improve myself

how u know which subjects tested more in exam , I mean does the assesment in NBME result , the width of each subject indicate something???

Its one of the toughest NBMES. Dont be disappointed as it would lead you no where. The only thing you can do is to Revise FA at this point and then take another NBME after revising FA! I myself made so many silly mistakes in NBME 12 that I started thinking of taking an IQ test before attempting another NBME! Jokes apart, Its not the real thing. So, get over it and Study like a Champ! Hopefully you will score much higher in Step 1 exam as you now know your weaknesses!!!
