Question Jumping from 210 to 238 on NBMEs in three days!

Hey guys

I took NBME 7 about 3days ago and I got 210.

Just took NBME 13 and got 238...

I didn't do much between the NBMEs except going over female repro which I was weak at according to NBME 7.

Is NBME 13 too easy in relation to real exam or is NBME 7 just too hard?

I don't know what to make of this big of a difference in my scores...Any input?

That's an amazing improvement in 3 days.

Were you nervous doing NBME 7? Were you doing it late at night or anytime your performance could've been affected?

Why don't you take one more NBME (11 or 12) tonight or tomorrow and confirm with it ?

I've taken all the other NBME's and my exam is in 3 days.

On 6 I got 222 and on 12 i got 219. I took these about a month ago.

I'm very doubtful about nbme 13 which I thought was way easier than 7.

i truly don't know difference between form 7 and 13, but your scores are pretty decent. it means you are studing properly. if you have 3 days left read FA + your notes. that's it !!! go and ace exam.
if you ask me you don't need any supplemental self assessment.

if your exam is 3 days away you have nothing to worry about
just keep cramming FA and you'll be fine. 220+ for sure imo.

the NBME 7 was a fluke, the rest are pointing to ur true level (NBME 13 is the most recent and predictive)

Go ace it and come back and tell us how u did it

Good luck!
