well,first of all sorry to hear that.
but it's really odd,I mean a lot of people with even lower scores than yours in NBME & uw got good scores or at least passed.
did you screw up on the exam day ,because that happens , at least it happened to me in my CK.
on the other hand it's scary cause my test is in 2 weeks & my nbme is lower than yours & uw is lower than yours too.

I am just curious to know that when You say NBME 5 was 200 and NBME 12 was 220, by that you mean, You converted it to the prediction score, or was this the total score? Cos 200 is about 148 or something the prediction table.

Anyway I am sorry to hear that...Don't lose hope .There is always a way out.Good Luck in future.

I am also thinking he/she might have done the NBME calculation wrong or didn't do it at all.

If you did convert it....something must have went wrong somewhere. I have never heard of anyone getting a 220 and failing the exam. If that is the case i might need to postpone my exam.

It is a bad feeling after... but its been done and use it to a positive advantage, you gained experience and use the knowledge to the next try and prepare in areas graded weak. You will do good!
