Help Exam in 7 days, NBME Ranges 210 to 215

My exam is in about 7 days.

My NBME score range has been from 210 to 215.

I feel prepared for the exam, but i'm very worried that I wont even pass the exam. What do you guys think? Will at least pass?

My goal is 230+, will I be able to reach that goal in 7 days?

you will pass
will you get 230 if its a week away? i dont think so.

nbmes are very predictive so you'll end somewhere between 210 and 215.

Best of luck....ive seen so many experiences on these forums where ppl had high nbme scores and came out with a lower score....and seen some people with okay nbme scores come out with high scores

Nothing is 100 percent full proof ...try your best I'm sure you can get above 220...230 will be hard but it has been done before

Hey there, a week is a long time!! do your best to get through as many questions in UWorld as possible. I would go through them in timed tutor just so you can answer it, see the answer, and skim through all of the answer choices. If there is a huge concept you keep missing, review that in first aid. Remember to "relax" the day before the exam.

You could go through high yield equations, the biostats equations, the images in FA, and some other high yield stuff but the day before try to stay calm and get a good night's sleep. the best tool on exam day is energy and a clear head.

Yes I think it is possible. What is your percentage in Uworld? good luck, hang in there, and you are almost done!! go, go, go, go. Final push, you can do it. (Yes I think you will pass)

HI again,

Just reading another forum about scores and person posted
"I gave only nbme 11 which was 20 days before the exam and got 226."

and they ended up with a 238.

If you feel well-prepared you probably are! Stay confident and push through this last stretch. questions, questions, questions. and review high yield stuff/stuff that is easy to forget right before the exam.

thanks for all the support!

My uworld average the first pass through was a 72%.

I just dont know why my NBME scores are not going above 220.

I'm really worried about passing the exam.

I really want a 230!!!!

With those UWorld scores I think you will be fine. Stay confident and keep up the questions.

well most of the 'last week' is over for me. I finished going through everything for the last time 2 days ago (4 days before the test). Since then Ive been reviewing my notes, going through high yield material in the back of first aid and most importantly doing as many questions as I can. I finished UWORLD about a week ago. I saved this last weekend for the kaplan Qbook. Questions from the Qbook are not like the exam (not nearly as good as UWORLD) but they are excellent for a general understanding of everything, the "big picture," plus its subject based so I can really work on my weak areas. Good luck to you.
