Help NBME low score

Hey guys, I think this forum is awesome and everyone is so generous.

Here's my predicament:

I'm did 2 nbme's and I'm scoring pretty low- 270 and 290.

I did a run through of DIT videos, Got 600 Qs left in UW, 1 run through of FA, currently listening to Goljan audios.....yet my nbme score is low.

Kinda discouraged after I took the 2nd one earlier today and for 290.

Please share any helpful advice, strategies, or mood boosters lol

Wink Keep doing questions

What is your UW score!
Did you do Kaplan!

I think you should keep doing more questions and review the areas where you perceive yourself weak

my advice to u will be to learn FA by heart, each and every thingee, and go thru goljan rr .... look at its pictures, do the books high yield cell biology and genetics, bkz these 2 topics r very highyield... then kaplan qbank, then uworld, then 1 other bank rx for e.g. then see ur nbme scores... revise again and again in ur mind wat u hav learnt... best of luck
Why does Good luck often carries more weightage than hard work in successes???
