I did 75% of USMLE world and I paid for 2 USMLE World Self Assessment Tests

Arrow You may not need them

75% in USMLE World is a fantastic average (if it's reflecting random, timed, first-attempt blocks).

You are quite definitely going to get high 99 in the exam. I'd say you don't need the NBME.

If at all, do one of them just to make sure of your score, that's it. The NBME is not for learning, it's for predicting your performance.

Did you mean you completed 75% of UWorld or that your UWorld average is 75%? If you only completed 75%, you should take the NBME, which would be a better predictor of your score. Good luck!
