Hey,
Your score now is very great and sure after UW your score will improve till +240.

Just work on the weak area + UW + read first Aid very well = +240

Best of luck

You actually have 12 months to review it. So don't worry about 20 days.

You got a 224 without doing UW!!! That is awesome in my book. If you honestly have not done UW until now, trust me once you do it, your score will ONLY GO UP!! So do not get discouraged, do UW, take notes, and memorize those notes. You will raise your score on your next NBME, and that's my guarantee. Good luck.

Thanks everybody for encouragement.Hope to build on it.Renal and Urinary system showed low performance for me and genetics was borderline.I felt the exam was really tricky.Very few straight forward questions.Mostly requiring multistep thoughts.I got 36 incorrect.If some one has taken te form recently then we can review it together daily like 10-15 mcqs.Any one willing do let me know please.

Awesome score Lara considering the fact that you haven't done U World...which can surely give you a boost of 20-30 points....

Can you please share your journey till now as I suppose you have only done Kaplan bank(offline subject wise)?????? so how tough/doable it was to reach 220+ in nbme 12 after doing kaplan books and bank???

Best luck
