Group talk Anyone else scared of NBME

Hopefully I will be done Kaplan Qbank in a few days and the plan was to take an NBME. I keep pushing the date because I don't think I'm at passing and its been MONTHS UPON MONTHS since I started to study. I just wanted to be at passing before I started UWorld.

Its really starting to freak me out a lot!

the results in kaplan qbank dont matter at all, coz they ask obscure details that are generally not tested in the real exam
take one of the easier nbme's (3 or 5) & start uworld
the only thing that is close to the real exam is the nbme

i've taken my first NBME around 2 weeks ago or less, and failed it. I've never studied harder since.

If you do as expected in ur first NBME, then ur motivated with a boost of confidence.
If you do less than what is expected, then ur "slapped back to reality" and also very motivated.

from how i see it, it's a win-win situation

I think your right because the thought of failing has already pushed me so much already.
