Default Just want to beat 225...check my scores please!

205 NBME13 (6weeks ago)
230 UWSA1 (12days ago)
220 NBME15 (5days ago)
250 UWSA2 (yesterday)
68% UWorld 1st pass
85% second pass (20 blocks)

I really just want to hit 225...am I ready?

Of the 3 diagnostic exams I've done in the past 2 weeks (230-minus10, 220, and 250-minus20), It looks like I'm somewhere between 220-230. Would you agree?

I would say you are. when is your exam/ If you have time, def go through some BS and ethics questions.

IMO i think you can def score 225 if not better.

Exam isn't scheduled, but I'm approved we have an opening Wednesday. I'd have to book it by noon today.

Behavioral was my low score on the recent NBME, also general health... all the basic sciences were at least borderline or better.

But I've never read First Aid, and am toying with the idea that 2-3 weeks could get me 10, maybe 15 points....

yes.. ive heard of improvements like that with BS and ethics. I think its worth a shot. since was you lowest. improving that would def help you cross 230. Conrad fisher medical ethics book you can get online. its a super quick read. But if you have time do the BRS BS + conrad fisher ethics. those two sources will def help.
