Correct Answer Good luck!!

Hey the exam is not exactly the same as any NBMEs. I just took my exam y'day and I had done all possible NBMEs both online and offline. And I am not sure if the exam was more like one than the other. But its all formated the same way.

NBME 7 is a good indicator of ur score. But what matters most is how calm and composed you are and how you deal with time management on the actual day of the exam that is 7 hours long. So be focused. Do not worry about which NBME is more like the exam. I did not have evan one qn similar to any of the NBMEs but the contents were all the same.

So all the best. Do well.

I just did NBME 13 and I was shocked...Man its really brutal...If you have already done other NBMEs and your score was good,I would recommend just go through it offline...Cos like you said you don't want to be demoralized in the end.I went down 10 points from NBME 12.

Plz don't ask what was my score.Thanks

My exam in 19 days.

And just to add that a lot of students say that exam is much easier than NBME 13, some say its the same.I am not saying its something impossible , just saying why would you go for something which can go either way and u can't do nothing about it, after all you have only a couple of days.

I would rather focus on what I already know.

Good Luck !
