Default Advice needed. Exam on 30th.

I took an nbme 16 2 days ago and got 224. It seams like my score refuses to go up. I took nbme 12 2 months ago and it was still 224.

These are scores from my last nbme 16

I have like 8 or 9 days left. Any advice?

I want to get at least above 235

Your behavioural score is low... you need to improve that. Practice questions from UW, UW biostat subject review, Usmle weapon etc on behavioural. Thats just my opinion but i havent taken the exam yet.

What would we be the best to do?

I finished UW 1.5x. and i have finished Kaplan qbank 1x. I have 4 days left.

1.Should I do Kaplan Qbank incorrect and FA?
2.Should I do Kaplan Qbank incorrect and List of Forgettables?
3.Or what do you think?

I havent written exam yet but what I would do if I were you is to review wrongs for pathology and physiology since it comprises bulk of exam and possibly go over forgettables but remember to give yourself a deadline where you stop reading so you are 100% mentally rejuvenated - get a good nights rest and then walk into exam blazing with confidence - good luck.

average ur recent nbmes and scale it +/- 5. that's probably the best range of how u would do on real deal, if its where u wanna be then sit exam otherwise postpone.

If you are thinking of postponing then postpone it by 2 months. Anything less than that will hardly make a difference. You need to relearn high yield concepts perfectly. Also learn key words in the question stem which give clues to what the answer is.
