Listening My NBME Options; Exam in a week

I have taken nbme 11, 12, 13. I plan to take 7 this week. I wont have time for 15. Here are my options:

1) take both 7 and 15 this week
2) take 7 and not 15
3) extend exam one week and take both

What do you guys say? Thanks

if your exam is in a week. i would suggest not taking nbme 15. i just did it and boy was i wrong. and my exam is about a month away.

still have 7 and 11 left.

i would say go for those.

just my opinion.

do you mind sharing your scores on nbme 13 and nbme 15 so i can get an idea? If it was terribly hard, then maybe I should take it and reevaluate myself.

hello
just gonna drop into this thread with a question.. ^^"

so do you guys think that NBME 7 still represents the exam although NBME 15 is the latest? i was thinking since it's the latest it'd represent the real thing the most .. just my thoughts, still have to take the exam..

(i did #7 along time ago when i wasn't ready .. thinking of doing it again now that i'm more prepared ..)

I took nbme 7 1.5months before exam n scored 235; but wen I gave 12 around 20 or 15 days before exam I got only 224 but dats cuz I was a bit overconfident and made a lot of silly mistakes... And my real deal : 240 so in my case 7 was d best predictor..
