all nbmes are normalized, whatever score the predict for you is very accurate to where you are and what you would get on the real exam at that point in your studies.

as far as which nbmes are more like the real exam in terms of the way the questions are written, that would be forms 7,11,12,13.

13 was hyped up to be hard when it first came out
then some people started saying its too easy.
its the same ish as the other 3 in that list of 4 nbme forms that are most like the real exam.
so its nothing extraordinary, do 13, do 7, do 12... it doesnt really matter.
