Arrow NBME 7 Scored 490(219)

Dear forum members,

I did NBME 7 today and scored 490/219, I looked at it as low score in regard to what I'm planning to get which is hopefully 240 or around it on the real test.:sorry:
I didn't finish the first aid though, and still have some materials to cover .
my test isn't yet scheduled but my eligibility period expires by the end August.
I would like to know what you guys think about this score and if there are any advices for me.

thanks in advance.:sorry:

well although score is not bad but considering your goal and time you have you would have to do a lot of homework here, First of all see what areas did you get wrong answers in, try to work on those subjects from your primary review book whether its FA or Kaplans, Finish FA asap, Finish UW if you havent and review UW qbank of weak areas, and take another nbme after 2-3 weeks, if you raise score to 230+ then u may be able to give exam by august end otherwise extend your triad esp if you want your target score. hope it helps, good luck with your preparation and keep the morale high.

i'm on the same page as you..well sorta. i took nbme 12 about 10 days ago and scored a 219 (490). today, i took nbme 11 and scored a 219 (490). NO IMPROVEMENT AT ALL. my exam is exactly two weeks from now and extending my date is not an option for me. my original goal was a 240, but at this point, ill happily take a 230. my uworld scores these past few days have ranged from 63-78% (with the exception of yesterday, where i got a 54%). i'm on my second pass of FA and it's going super slow (about 30 pages a day). i wanted to get another read of FA in during the last 5-6 days and also dedicate 2-3 hours a night reading goljin (and continue uworld questions). is it possible to improve that much in 2 weeks? and if so, how??
