Listening NBME 12 score 540...exam in 3 days!!

Need some advice! So exam is scheduled in 3 days!! So forced myself to take NBME 12 and got 540/231. This is an improvement from my previous NBME that I took last week. Do you guys think this is a good score to go and take the exam with?? I am not aiming for a 250 or something crazy like that...I am just aiming for a 225!! The exam anxiety is kicking in and I am starting to get confused!! Any advice is appreciated! Thanks!!

Took the exam today!! And I gotta say I am having so many mixed feelings!! Some questions were so easy it was as if they are just checking to see if I am awake!! And some questions are so tricky, that it makes you think if you have prepared for this exam properly! Right now I feel like I might have passed BARELY. I had a lot of marked questions in each block. So that is never a good sign! I didn't feel like there were that many "experimental" questions. Every question was based on something that I should have known, it wasn't something completely random that I hadn't heard in my life before. That being said, that doesn't mean that I was able to get the correct answers for all the questions!! So now the horrible wait begins...I can't wait to get the result. I keep thinking I failed!! As of now, all the hopes of getting an average score (225) are gone, right now I am just hoping that I passed!!! :sorry:

Good luck with your score! I am sure you did just fine ...a lot of people think they will barely pass after the exam and end up with 240 + score. So relax!
I wanted to ask you how similar were the questions in the exam with UWSA and NBME?

Thank you! I can't imagine how that can happen, but I appreciate it. So the questions felt very similar to uworld and NBMEs. I am not sure about UWSA because I didn't really go over the UWSA after I did them. But I felt some questions, if not repeated word for word, were asking very similar concepts as seen on the NBMEs. Also some of the question stems were IDENTICAL to some questions from the Free 150 questions. I hope this helps.

The wait for the score is killing me!! It is so annoying. I really think that the scores should be released within a week of the exam. Its a computer exam, I don't understand why they make the students suffer so much by making them wait for the score for 3-4 weeks!
