To be honest I think all you did was really increase your anxiety. The NBME you did on the day of your exam is due to pure exhaustion. You just finished an 8 hour exam and then you tried to do a 4 hour exam so I'm not surprised your score dropped. With that low score on that NBME your probably started freaking out which lead to the second score.

yes i too think taking nbme post exam is not very reliable. because exam exhausted me too the bottom of my capacity and after exam doing nbme would definitely lead to low scores. actually i tried to do the same 3 weeks after exam but just couldnt concentrate so much!
