Help NBME 6 Scored 550

I'm nervous here big time guys. I've pounded through first aid 2011, averaged 70% on Rx and 70% of uworld (completed them both). I scored a 550 on NBME 6. Is this enough for a pass?
I'm really worried about failing it and I'm not sure if I should write. I haven't used any other high yield resources (such as forums, etc).

That's a pretty safe score.
Why NBME 6 though... Why not one of the newer forms. Just curious...

nbme 7, nbme 11, or nbme 13... Heard they have been the best predictors for a lot of step takers.
nbme 13, since its the newest I would expect it to be closest to the real thing... but seen a lot of students say its exceptionally hard. I plan to take it next week, hopefully it wont bring down my confidence lol. :sorry:

You are at 70% on UWorld and 550 on NBME and you are worried about passing?!! .
