Listening Is 189 NBME Score Good?

Hello Friends!

Hope everyone is doing well. I need your advice. I just took an NBME and got a 189. What do you think I should do now? Is this enough to take the real exam? Should I take another NBME in a week?
Any advice will help me please!
THanks!!

Hi... M not an expert but I can understand how anxious u must be... Ur nbme score shows u hv grabbed ur basics dats y u cud pass... But I wud advise u to practice more ques which will teach u d application of those basics in d exam.. Hv u done Uworld Q bank? If not , do dat wid random untimed tutor mode and read all d explanations carefully.. Dat will tell which points u r missing.. Den take another NBME.. Dat will tell u where u Stand... I don't wanna demoralize u but ur scores shud be good n step 1 score esp... Aim for a higher score to be competitive enuf for match....

Thank you for your advice. I am doing Uworld Qbank with 49% unused questions left. My percentile score is 68th and percent correct is 65%. I'll try my best to at least get over a 210. Thank you again!!!
