Help NBME 5 score 300 - 175.

Hey,so i took the NBME 5 today and got a 300,which is 175 in the real test.so im aiming for a 200+ score.

im doing uworld in random timed mode.my average right now is 53%.i have done about 10 blocks.i went through FA once but it took me really long.i did the kaplan q bank earlier too.

so my question being how should i look to enhance my study time and in your opinion how soon or how much time will it take for me to reach a 200+ score.i was hoping to do it in 1 - 1.5months.is that possible?

when people say they do the FA in a couple of weeks.do they just skim through it or do they actually sit and process each bit of detail in their head.cause that takes time - or maybe im doing something wrong.if youll could give me some advice that has helped you'll or is helping you'll right now i will very much appreciate it.thanks.

The more you read first Aid the faster it becomes for you to go through it again and again. Did you read kaplan notes. How many questions did you get wrong in NBME 5 to get the score of 175.

yeah i did the kaplan videos and notes once early on. well i dont know how many i got wrong or right cause when i bought the nbme 5 form they didnt have a feedback option(60$) form.so i just did the 50$ one.

i read on here that nbme 5 is easier so i figured i do that.and my average in uworld isnt very good either(53%).

also how many blocks do youll do in uworld (including reviewing) in a day.i can at best do 2.is that normal or am i doing it very slow?

my 3 month period is feb-march-april. worst case scenario i can postpone it for another 3 months.but i would like to finish it by april 2nd week at best.that gives me a little less than 2 months.

nope i havnt done goljan or any other book.
kaplan videos and notes.
75 % of questions from kaplan qbank.
FA once
Uworld - 10 blocks down - average is 53%.
nbme5 - 300/175.

study plan ,uworld a block a day,review and as much FA as possible.and take another nbme in 1-2 weeks.
any advice or opinion on whether i will be able to complete this exam in 2 months?

Mysha, if you are planning to give your exam in April, you should have taken atleast one NBME form to know where you stand and areas to concentrate on. Remember, you target your week areas more. This is just a suggestion.
