Question NBME 12 offline (163/200)

Hello guys ...

I did NBME 7 online 10 days ago and my score was 212 (45 mistakes)
(Then i postponed my exam one month) ...
I read again very carefully the subjects where i'm not good.

Today i did NBME 12 offline and i got 163/200 (I mean 37 mistakes) ...
I found form NBME 12 is harder than NBME 7 ...

Can i know 163/200 correct answers equivalent in three digits ?
My exam after three weeks so can i move forward till +235 ? and how?

Please any advice it will be very helpful.

Thanks in advance.

I just saw this post...so I guess you should disregard my post in the other thread. So I took NBME 12 online, and I got 31 incorrect, and that was 540/231 according to their scale. So getting 163/200 would be approximately in the 225 range +/- 2 or 3 points. So this is approximately a 10 point improvement from your previous NBME!! Keep it up!! Just keep doing what you did after NBME 7, because it seems to be working! I would recommend that you go through first aid entirely in 5-7 days and then take another NBME. And then in the final 2 weeks, just keep on hammering first aid into your brain, and if you want a confidence booster, try to take UWSA in the final week before the exam. GOOD LUCK!

I would thank you very much for your response. Very helpful and supportive.

In NBME 7 most of my wrong answers were in Musculoskeleton, Renal, Molecular biology and Immunology so i read this material from Golian again and i'm feeling i did very well in this subject in NBME 12.
I'm planing to do NBME 11 Online after 10 days.

Your score is Amazing. My parter in Step went to exam and his real score 240 .... he did NBME 12 about three weeks before the exam and his score was 233 ... So you can go +240 very easy ...

Best of luck

Thank you for the kind words, but I feel like I might have made some really silly mistakes. I would just be happy with a 220 at this point! The long day of the exam, and the anxiety might have got to me on the exam day. Oh well, now I can't do anything besides wait for the results!

This is good. And yes I believe you can definitely improve your score even more. What I would do from here, is go through FA and UW notes, as you said, and then take NBME 13 a week before. This is going to give you the best estimate of your final score on the exam. And after doing FA and UW again in a short period of time, you will most likely be able to improve on that 226. So keep going, the final 2 weeks are the most important time. Do not get distracted now. You are almost done.

Really thank Dr.Exudate for your words and help.

i'm feeling i'm exhausted and frustrated but I will use my maximum effort and energy in next two weeks.
But i heard nbme 13 is very hard comparing to other nbme forms and i'm worried to get lower than 226

Thanks again.

If you subscribe to extended version (60$), you can know how many mistakes.

In the page of NBME performance, you have to find like arrow (Next) in the lower left corner ... just click on it and you will see the details of your performance.

Good luck

i did nbme 11 i week back and got 217
i was to take the exam on oct 16 but postponed it
as i did not do well on nbme 12
i have heard nbme 13 is a tough one so if you got 226 thats not bad considering the fact that it is tough in your real exam you will do much better like add 10+ points to 226
my advice dont postpone,i did postpone but you tend to waste more time if u postpone
did you already take NBME 7??
when is your exam?
go through FA and your weak areas real quick and take another NBME after 5 days and decide
i am taking NBME 13 tomorrow
and i am so scared to take it...my exam is on 15th
and i cant postpone if i dont do well in NBME 13
ya so i am freaking out
i have not even crossed 220 in my previous NBMEs
GOOD LUCK
