Hiiii
i did nmbe13 2 months ago ( i scored 186)

then did 3 days ago nmbe 11 scored 205
yesterday was my exam

The real thing is more like nnmbe 13 ( mine at least) , but again i wasnt as prepared , but focus on molecularr , it was challenging , i knew many answers not from my step preparation but because i was a genetics fan in pre-med , good luck :-)

how many questions did u get wrong and what was the final score? for the people who did it online?


the gentix part was doable for me, i could reason my way through the options, but there where lots of vague stuff, and not a real certain weak point that i have to work on :S

i did nbme 13 today, online. Got 590/242 ( 24 incorrect)
it was the toughest nbme i've ever solved, though i am yet to take nbme 7, which i plan to take on 17th, two days before my actual exam.

after taking nbme 13, i had very low hopes since i had got 231 in nbme 12 which was much easier....was quite shocked to see the score

I thought the behavioral on this exam was crazy...everything else was on par with other nbmes for me but behavioral was the toughest for me from all the nbmes I've done (11,12,5,13)
