Arrow NBME 13. Just did it, reaction (Spoiler)

MAN!!!!
WTFFFFF!!!!!

THis one truly is the hardest nbme of all!!

took nbme 12 last week, thought that one was hard, but 13 is like real "13"!!

========

Ok, now constructive critique:
I felt like I have failed it! I almost knew that I failed, cuz many questions were WTF, especially those about muscle attachements and MOA of antiparasitic drugs!
FA is definitely definitely not enough for NBME 13!
I mean ofcourse I had maybe 20 questions of pure regurg from FA, but not more than that!

I got a decent score, but lord, it was hard!
===============

Got stars in most of the topics, except for Cardio and Behav (on all the previous nbmes I had stars in here and very consistent performance)
More than that! My cardio performance bar is around borderline! WTF man!! Those cardio questions were way too weird! WAY too weird!

I felt like many questions were exactly the same as previous nbmes, felt strong incline towards Myastenia gravis and all sorts of **** around it... Eaton Lamberd, Muscle receptors.
Micro questions were way too ****ing complicated - One of my favorite topics and I didnt got a ster here either.

Bunch of genetics, some are from FA. Heavy (non-fa of course) behavioral question.
Biochem is easy...
Lots of hemathology.
Again all the aspects of weird uterine attachements and crap like that.
------

BTW (to the admins) - there are a bunch of questions on the forum, especially those asking to lable brain are the screenshots from NBME13.
