Question Nbme 13 wtf!

So I took NBME 11 (232) two weeks ago, NBME 12 (248) a week ago and then NBME 13 (235) yesterday. I don't know what the hell to expect in terms of what happened to my score. Is NBME 13 harder than the other ones? cuz I sure as hell felt that way. I have my test in 10 days, so I guess there isn't anything that I could do at this point, but maybe it was a mistake taking 13 at the end?

so how are you able to review the whole block in just one hour? or do you only read the answer explanations for the ones you get wrong ?

Read the learning objective for the ones I get right, and learn the whole thing for the ones I missed.
