How did your nbme correlate with your actual score. You can just give the point difference if you're not comfortable sharing your score.

Default Update and advice

A lot of people on here are lying about their scores so do not get discouraged.

1. Make sure you can pass NBME first, my score was closest to NBME 12 only three points higher

2. USMLE world is not much of a help if you don't have a very good foundation, it will only help you think differently and practice answering questions

3. First aid should be used as a guidelines and not as a memorisation tool

What about physio. Is it highly tested. Because i did physio from kaplan notes and that also in a short interval. Don't have much grasp on renal and cardio. So what you recommend?

Hi. Congrats on your great score!!

I'm an IMG and am not really sure what the NBME is. Could you please give me a little more detail on it? I know it's some exam that you take before the main exam, but is it something that you take for 1 day or is it like UWorld?
(Sorry for the dumb question!

Thanks in advance!

They write the USMLE step 1 exam, and make mock exams you can take on their website ....from wikipedia

"
National Board of Medical Examiners

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
The National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME), founded in 1915, is a United States examination board which sets state recognised examinations for medical students.[1] The NBME is an independent, not-for-profit organization and is headquartered on and adjacent to the University City Science Center research campus in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.[2] According to the board, its mission is to "protect the health of the public through state of the art assessment of health professionals." The board emphasizes that "while NBME' mission centered on assessment of physicians, this mission encompasses the spectrum of health professionals along the continuum of education, training and practice and includes research in evaluation as well as development of assessment instruments".
The board rose in prominence in the years after World War II. Prior to the war, states administered their own exams, and operated agreements to license doctors passed by other state exams. After the war, states began to use the results of an NBME exam to decide whether to award a license. This system meant students would sit the same exam.[3]
The United States Medical Licensing Examination or USMLE, introduced in 1992, is a multi-part professional exam sponsored by the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) and the NBME, and must be passed before a Doctor of Medicine can obtain a license to practice medicine in the United States.[4][5]"
