Angry anyone who took NBME 13???

i kno everyone feels different about every tests
but for those of u who took NBME13, did u think there were big differences between difficulties of each block?
i took it online,
got 7 wrongs in block 1(corresponding to block 3 in offline version)
10 wrongs in block 2(block 1 on offline version)
but 18 wrongs each in block 3 and 4
lol dont know what i was thinking while solving block 3,4
im kinda shocked now, getting 36wrongs in last 2 blocks..
doesnt seem like i was distracted during that time..
and i was just wondering if maybe, block 3 and 4(block 4 and 2 in offline version) were actually a lot harder than the first two..

i also took nbme 13 and thought it was a lot harder than 11,12.. got the same total incorrects with you too.. hope the real deal isnt much like 13, it just seemed full of distractors! also there were a lot of "repeat" questions around the same concepts, which if you get wrong you automatically lose both Qs..

i fell 2 points in the prediction compared to nbme 12 - 2 weeks ago, how about you?
