Help Exam Tomorrow, No NBME

Hi Guys,
I know I might be posting this kinda late but I need to know what do you think?

I'm having my exam tomorrow and didn't do any NBME

ps:
1. I did Kaplan videos in all subjects except Microbiology,Pharma and Pathology.
2. did FA about 4 times.
3. did Q&A and some of the offline UW.
3. Completed the online UW with average of 71% (many of my mistakes were because of hard recalling as I did the UW about 1 month after the preceeding FA run)
and took notes of weird and non-FA concepts.
4. did the free 150 NBME and got 89%.

I know its too late to think of the NBMEs, but I didn't want to add to my stress by doing it.

so Now, What shall I do? Where do you think I'm standing? and How far can I get 240+ ?

Please reply ASAP
Thanks in advance

Sorry didn't mean to add to the stress but i think you should at least take an NBME To know where u stand.... it's dangerous going for it w/out knowing how far.. but if u feel confident enough then it no biggie.. it's just my opinion.

I think I'll panic and probably would get even <215 if I took the NBME now, I'm already nervous

Does the 71% in UW correlate with 215 in the real exam?
or does it correlate with anything?

Thnx Rosi

UW average cannot be correlated with exam...they are just used as studying tool not for analysis.....
u got 89% from free 150..those too are for building up confidence..they tells that you are in the race for exam but where ? can be known by nbme's......
my advice is give a nbme(7/11) tonight (they r easy and can compared to exam as well)and don't be panic with the result of nbme u get.
(or) if you are very nervous in doin nbme...then keep faith in yourself and go to the exam, if you are confident enough to deal with the exam you have bettr chances to success....
have a good sleep...don't ruin the exam by being panic...be confident
good luck..i hope u'll do bettr....

I think I'd go for the 2nd option as I'm not planning to postpone anyway
I'll try to boost up my confidence,pray and go for it

Thanks very much for the advice and the wishes!

Hi,
Don't worry. I know people who haven't given a single NBME and have done very well. I guess UW makes you think really twisted anyways, so just go with what you know, don't worry and you'll do just fine.

The most important thing is to have confidence in yourself!

Good luck!
