Help I don't feel ready

I have my exam in 2 days and i dont feel ready...have not even finished 25% of FA.
Gave nbme 15 and scored 500/221...but i still dont feel prepared. I need a 220+ . Do you think I should go for it without doing FA.

Please...somebody who took the exam please advice!

Default Yup

Did you do Uworld? If you've done it full, I say go for it. You're ready. I probably learnt more from doing uworld than reading FA.


btw.. haven't taken the exam yet...

You need to score 230 in NBME in order to make sure that you will get 220+ in the real exam.
